Fuzzy Mitten Lamb Photoshoot

My lamb came home from my LYS where she was all week, so we went outside for a photo shoot. Here she is posed in a Sword Fern, with lots of new growth unfolding.
Sitting on a deck chair, enjoying the late afternoon sun.
How about in a patch of Forget-Me-Nots, to highlight the blue of her dress.

My LYS, Apple Yarns, announced over a month ago that they wanted people to make this pattern so they could display them during the yarn tour, which was this past weekend. It was announced as a contest, with a good prize, so I decided to do it. Turns out I was the only person who entered, so poor little lambie was all alone at the store.

Pattern: Fuzzy Mitten Lamb by Barbara Prime. It's a free download if you are a member of Ravelry.

The dress is an original creation, combining knitting with crochet for the yolk.
