Momma made a little lamb. It's fleece was white as snow. Momma named her lamb Clarice, because she has a warped sense of humor.
Clarice was made from a pattern that we got from Grandma's stash of crochet books and magazines. Here's the pattern.
See how cute the little lamb in the upper left hand corner is? I really wanted to make one, so I got some Vanna's Choice white yarn and got busy.
The way the pattern was written made it a little difficult to follow, but I was able to sort it out. The only thing I changed was I used 4-ply yarn instead of two strands of baby yarn that the pattern called for. Also, I chose not to add all the little knots on top of the head and body because I didn't think it really needed it. Let's see what you think.
I think Clarice is adorable with her little black and white polka-dot ribbon purchased from Coco and Toulouse Go Shopping. She also has a little bell on her ribbon so she can't wander off and get lost. Since Clarice is still a baby, she needs a lot of tender loving care. She will be for sale at the upcoming St. Agatha Holiday Bazaar in early November.
