SHEEP for the Knitivity!

Just wondering if those from the UK have come across Street Life yet? It is free to register and you are located by your postcode and can get/add local information on the group.

I found my Ballroom Dancing Lessons that way, recommended a Chimney Sweep and have been to a new Knitting Group in a local community library.

In the knitting group they are making sheep for the Knitivity for a local church. The church are after around 60 sheep!! The photo of 12 are the ones I met on my first visit to the group.



I am on my 4th at present, my Mother kindly sent me some wool and the correct size needles as my first was with bigger needles and too thick wool! It is rather a chubby sheep and one I won't be able to part with.



Here are all the component parts before being stitched up. This Eco 100% undyed virgin wool can tend to split whist sewing but is the closest to sheep colour and texture really.

I have got together a basket of supplies so I can knit in front of the TV as well as at my craft table, which is sunny in the daytime. These sheep are SO cute.

Hi BJ,

Cute sheep! The church will have a nice flock by the time everyone is done! It's very cool how you found a new knitting group near your home.

Like you, I usually knit in front of the t.v. I watch a lot of t.v. in the winter time as it's too cold to do anything outside. We changed our clocks this weekend so it will now be dark by 4:30 p.m. -- makes for a long night.
Hugs,
Kay
