Wip Wednesday- the easter edition

This week we have been embracing all things Easter. We have visitors coming for the weekend, so we have been busy buying eggs, decorating the house, planning activities for the weekend and thinking of lots of nice Easter treats! 

I have also been preparing Easter baskets for our niece, nephew and Angus for Easter Sunday. It's been really fun picking up little things to put in their baskets! I have also knitted some small things for the baskets, for my niece, a little rabbit, for my nephew a little chick and for Angus I'm making something slightly bigger, Shaun the sheep!

We took Angus to the cinema a few weeks ago for the first time and the movie was Shaun the sheep. He loved it and ever since has been slightly obsessed with it. I don't  mind as it's actually quite funny and definitely one of the less annoying children's programs!

At the time the movie was out a newspaper was including a pattern for knitting your own Shaun the sheep and even provided the yarn! Unfortunately I missed it! However, Rowan also released the pattern on their website, so I quickly downloaded that. I wasn't too worried about not getting the free yarn as I'm trying to stash bust and I have plenty white and black yarn. 

It's been really quick and easy to knit so far, although I suspect I may start cursing it when it comes to seeing up all the pieces! Here it is so far, not much to see really

Hopefully it will be finished for Friday! 


  1. We loved the Shaun the Sheep film. (Just us two adults, haha - there were about 10 people over the age of 20 in the cinema when we saw it and everyone giggled the whole way through. A triumph of modern cinema.) Can't wait to see your finished sheep!

  2. Love Shaun the Sheep! Thanks for sharing!

  3. We have yet to see shaun the sheep, but love all the patterns - my son insisted on being a sheep for comic relief!!
