To celebrate the release of the Shaun the Sheep movie, Rowan put out a knitting pattern to make your own knitted Shaun. Of course, since I love knitting and Shaun the Sheep, I was all over that. However, it turned out to be much more fiddley than I would have liked. The actual knitting went pretty quick, then the assembly was a pain. The directions were fairly vague without any schematics. I finally finished it today, and my son loved it, but it will be several more years before I knit another toy. It wasn’t the relaxing, rewarding experience that knitting usually is for me.
