I knit a sheep!

This was a quick project that I finished last night; I started it last Tuesday. It was nice and small, which made it good for my recent short trip.

So, what do you think it is?A Rowanoid hat?
(Yes, that Lion is STILL wearing his Christmas outfit)
Does this picture help?
No?
It's a tea cozy!! Now Kyle doesn't have to use an item of outerwear to keep his tea hot anymore.
I bought the wool and pattern via ebay. The seller is a woman in Alberta who sells them as kits; the yarn is from her sheep. I can send her email address on to anyone who'd like it if you contact me via email - ladylungdoc AT hotmail.

Now, THAT is cute!!! As a hat, maybe a little too kitschy, but as for it's intended purpose, very cute!

Very cute cosy! (It doesn't make such a bad hat either, in a pinch...)

What a cute tea cosy! I've been thinking of knitting a cosy for a while but, I have yet to find a suitable pattern. Unfortunately, the DBF's tea pot is of the tall skinny variety, as opposed to the short, squat type.

Get your minds out of the gutter, all-- I really mean his tea pot. No innuendo!

Holy crap that's cute!!

And it does still make a smashing hat!

Maybe the lion can wear it now that Xmas is over when there's no tea to warm.

The 22-and-counting sheep and the llama that lurk on the file cabinets next to this desk, all clap their hooves in glee.

I have that same teapot in white.

OMG your all talking about the sheep kit that I sold on e bay the one that I designed :0) so pleased to read so many nice things about it. Have to say about turning it into a hat don't worry there is a sheep hat kit as well as a toilet roll cover that is a sheep as well.
