I love sheep. Always have. I raised a sheep for 4-H back in high school and I currently have a large stash of wool and wool yarn. Naturally when my friend Jill announced that she was going to have a little girl, I knew I had to incorporate sheep into a gift. The pattern is from a Japanese embroidery book (another obsession!) and the characters below the Ram spell out Ka, i, and ri...or Kairi which is my friend's new daughter! I plan to work this pattern into a few other things for myself because it is quick and cute!
