Samara the 4ply sheep


I’ve been trying my best to clear all my unfinished crochet objects in an attempt to be more organised! So far I’ve managed to complete two and trash three (no point in holding on to it if I don’t want to finish it, happily I managed to save most of the yarn used). So my first finish was another Heidi Bears Shoop, I made her in 4ply and have decided to call her Samara.


Stephen was the first Heidi Bears pattern I made (followed by a Fatty Lumpkin with unicorn mods), and I can see by looking at the two sheep how much I have improved with the join as you go, Samara looks an awful lot neater!


As you can see I had a lot of fun posing them together! I’d really like to make two more sheep, one in aran and one in chunky so I can make a tower of sheep.


Materials used:

  • 10mm safety eyes
  • Stylecraft Special 4ply in cream
  • Drops Delight in Rainbow Print
  • Grosgrain ribbon bows

I had to end with a big bum pic, just for you Lisa!

Thanks for stopping by!


Stephen the Sheep wandering around Wigg Island



The sky was so clear and bright this morning that I thought it would be a perfect day to take out first walk of the year 🙂 One of our favourite places to walk (and by our I mean my other half AKA Lurch and I) is Wigg Island in Runcorn. It has bird hides that look over the Mersey, you can usually see many ducks, moorhens and swans on the canal and it even has a Troll Trail with awesome wooden carvings. All in all it’s a great walk and I decided to kill two birds with one stone and take my recently finished Heidi Bears Shoop the Sheep for some nice daylight photos. (I say recently, he’s been finished for a couple of months now. I just haven’t taken any decent photos of him. I’ve called him Stephen as he doesn’t look like a ‘Shoop’)

sheep3I’m sure people though I was crazy walking around with a camera and a crochet sheep but I really didn’t care, I would of taken many more photos of him in weird places but it was a little frosty! I did manage to take a couple of pics of him on the troll trail.
