A little lamb for Cloe

Hope you’re all having a great sunny weekend! After spending Saturday at The Knitting and Stitching Show and doing a bit of much needed Spring cleaning in my studio I realised I have lots of pics and updates I still need to share with you!! I’ll do my best to bring you up to speed on what’s been going on in these last weeks (including a trip to Madrid with crafts shopping involved!).

But first things first… in case you were wondering what happened with the little lamb amigurumi I started working on some weeks ago… here’s how we got on together 🙂

After enjoying making my first amigurumi, I decided to embark on a new mission… making a beautiful and cosy little lamb for my lovely “niece” Cloe. I was inspired by the project on last month’s Crafty Magazine (worth having a look at!).

I must admit counting stitches is not my  cup of tea but I’m really pleased with the results. As you can see I don’t have stitch markers (yet!) so a bright coloured piece of yarn did the trick.

I spent quite a few afternoons working on this project and my other half suffered in silence as I made it very clear that I shouldn’t be interrupted (I definitely didn’t want to lose count of my stitches!). He was really patient and even volunteered to go safety eyes shopping.

I hoped to have it finished before I travelled to Madrid but I only had time to finish all the parts and stuff them… the sewing together took place there. So Cloe’s little lamb is half English half Spanish (not a bad mix!).

…and even facing backwards. Love the little tail!

I couldn’t help myself and made a girly poncho for her too! She is such a beautiful little girl… just thinking of her makes me smile 🙂

Have you been working on any projects for your little ones? Or big ones?

Hope you enjoy what’s left of the weekend and wish you a wonderful week ahead!

  1. Such a cute little lamby, I bought the magazine so I could make her but I haven’t got round to it yet. Your poncho looks great too, you should post the pattern for it. Jean

    • Thanks a lot for your comment! You should definitely make a little lamb if you have the mag… it’s worth it 🙂
