One of my dearest girlfriends has had a bit of it for the last 2 years. Her husband is ill and it's been very hard on the family. Especially on her 8 year old son.
Last week, I gave her a Pillow Pal Giraffe, (she was the inspiration behind the Handful of Giraffe released 2 wks ago) as a sort of, "I'm thinking of you - smile Woman!!" gift - and when her son saw it, he immediately asked me if I could make him a Sheep/Lamb.
How could I resist such a sweet little insomniac?
Now of course I cannot attempt to make the Trademark Serta Sheep, which is the most common "yarn ball" that he sees with regards to Sheep/Lambs.
But, I can step it up a bit, with my own take on this famous little sleep inducing farm animal.
He was ecstatic, when I sought him out to get his approval of the Pillow Pal Lamb. So intent he was, that the photos were a rush job; since he didn't want to part with his video game/television watching, sleepin' snuggling little friend - once he laid eyes upon him.
Of course, I will be able to take more photos, since my own little counters have decided that they need their own little lambs - one to be made in Gothic style (Red & Black) and another - just to be different, in Pinks and Blues.
So without further adieu, I bring to you the 4th in the Pillow Pal Line - the Pillow Pal Lamb
A Pillow Pal Lamb contains 8 pages of pattern instructions, with detail oriented photographs (including 2 photo tutorials for neck and ears) and instructions to help you bring this happy, 17 inch plush friend together.
