Knitted sheepie

Another knitted destined for the County Show. I enjoyed knitting this, but was a lot of wee fiddly bits,  22 pieces in all, all shaped by increasing, decreasing and darts; not a particularly well written patter I felt, but I got through it with patience and a bit of knitter's licence! It was purchased as a kit from e-bay , described as 'new and unused', but the pattern had rows marked off on it, and several yards of the black wool had been knitted up, taken back and wound around the rest of the bal.. No matter, it was all there, mainly intact, and not very expensive.I omitted the plastic goggly eyes and nose in favour of softer textile ones, as it's a toy. Am pleased with the overall result, it's definitely got sheepy character :)
