A Flock of Sheep

Before Felting

After Felting

I'd seen the Fiber Trends A Felt Flock pattern many times before but didn't give it much thought until I saw a sample of two felted wool sheep displayed at The Needle Niche in Joplin, MO. They were adorable and I was determined to make my own flock to decorate my knitting space and show my love of fiber. Sheep can be any size so any weight of yarn can be used. Mine are shown in worsted and chunky wool/alpaca. Wouldn't it be cool to shear your own sheep, spin it, dye it, and knit something fabulous? This is as close as I'm going to get to having my own flock.
