Yarndale - Little Woolly Sheep

24th and 25th September sees the 4th Yarndale to appear in Skipton, and those who have visited or read about this wonderful event online will be aware of the collaborative project that is organised each year. First there was the 1.5 km of bunting swinging from the ceiling. Next came the bright and cheery mandalas, and last year they received crocheted and knitted flowers from all over the world, raising money for the Alzheimers Society.

Yarndale Buntin

Well, of course, this year’s no different and there’s another exciting project for everyone to hop onboard and support. It is .... a flock of Woolly Sheep (well we are in Yorkshire you know)!

There are knitted and crocheted patterns so nobody need feel left out :) I’m opting for Lucy’s crocheted version.

All details can be found at yarndale.co.uk/little-woolly-sheep

Sheep parts

These are my pre-assembly pieces, all ready for sewing. I’m using some Wendy Pixile yarn leftover from a previous design, and decided to give my sheep a bright tweed effect jumper with a frilly trim. Very fetching :)

Daisy the sheep

So, this is Daisy. She’s all finished and ready to be posted off. These have to be received by Friday 9th September so there’s still time to make yours if you haven’t yet. I look forward to spotting mine amongst the rest of the flock at Yarndale this year :)
