52 Knits // Fuzzy Lamb

November 1, 2012

MBP_2960

Pattern: Fuzzy Mitten Lamb by Barbara Prime

Yarn Used: Garnstudio Drops Alpaca Bouclé (23 grams), some dark grey yarn from my stash
Needles: 4mm DPNs
Modifications: none

Note: When I saw this pattern on revelry a couple years ago I put it on the top of my queue. Turns out finding the right kind of yarn for this wasn’t easy. When I saw this super fluffy Bouclé yarn in Denmark I knew that it would finally be time to knit the lamb! Well, the ‘lamb’ turns out not really looking like a lamb. The ears look rather like bear ears and even stretching and pulling them to make them longer/more lamb-like didn’t work out. I might take them off and knit new ears but for now I’m just glad that it’s done. I’m not a fan of knitting with only 6 stitches spread on 3 needles.

I feel like these ‘little projects’ take up much more time than e.g. knitting a hat, simply because knitting with few stitches is a real hassle for me. Oh well, it’s done and I like it. The yarn is super soft and I’m thinking about making a little sweater for her[I decided she’s a girl cause her face looks feminine… or at least I imagine it to look feminine.]

    Sooo cute! You picked the absolute perfect yarn for her too, it has a wonderful texture, I can imagine it is very soft.
