Little Lamb

Lamb by Susan B. Anderson
You can click on the first link to get to a free pattern. The second is Susan's blog. This pattern was initially published in Itty Bitty Knits which is where I found it. I am SO happy with how it turned out, it is just precious. I was disappointed that the boucle yarn in the original is now very difficult to find since they aren't making it anymore, but I'm very happy with the way this soft fuzzy yarn turned out. I am completely blanking on what the yarn is and I usually keep the label in my knitting bag while I'm working on a project but can't find it anywhere. The pink for the head and legs is Bernat Cotton. I wasn't completely sold on the pink at first, since I originally pictured more of a beige, but the pink is a perfect rosy complement to the off-white, and of course matches everything Lyddie owns.
The pattern also calls for the legs to be stiff from straws inserted - that way it can stand on its own but I liked the cuddliness of floppy legs.
Done with plenty of time before Christmas!!!
