Last weekend Rowan Yarns teamed up with the Telegraph Magazine with a special offer to get some free Rowan wool to knit Shaun the Sheep in celebration of the opening of the new Shaun the Sheep Movie. If you fancy knitting your own Shaun, you can download the pattern for free by visiting the Rowan Yarns website knitrowan.com or by clicking here. You will need 25g of black yarn DK and 25g of cream/white DK.
Rowan currently has a competition to win £100 of lovely Rowan yarn – you just need to photograph your finished Shaun in an unusual location and post it on Rowan’s Facebook page before 24th February.
It was great fun knitting Shaun this week – he has now been adopted by my little girl, but the pup has also taken a fancy to the little sheep too (must think it looks like one of his dog toys) although he does seem to have taken a fancy to snatching yarn in general looking at the ‘caught in the act’ photo above!!!
Hope you’re enjoying Valentine’s Day today, however you are spending it with the knitting, people or pets that you love.
EDITED TO ADD: COMPETITION!!!!:
I’m running a little competition to win some Rowan Yarn to knit your own Shaun. Answer the following Question if you’d like to enter:
Which was the name of the film that Shaun the Sheep first appeared in? Leave your answer here or on my Facebook page with an email address or Ravelry details so that I can easily contact you. Deadline is 5pm sunday 22nd February. UK only please. Good luck :)
