Our Lil Lamby

November 11, 2012

 Our Lil Althea Lamby was a big hit this Hallowe’en, and for a good reason.  This little costume was easy to make, fast, and adorable so a huge hats off to the designer.  Just ingenius.  The yarn is Thick and Quick, held double with size 15 mm needles which felt like using broom sticks.  A simple trinity stitch is used to give the look of a sheep, we just put a white outfit with black shoes underneath.  The weather in Calgary was cold, foggy, overcast, and generally miserable so a nice warm costume was a definite plus.  She loved the hat, and would swish her head back and forth to feel the ears move.  In the photo she is eating a baby bel cheese, and pointing to a super cool light up bat decoration.  The cheese was soon spit out, and another one asked for.  I had to hide them, and put all the other candy out of her reach.  Sorry kiddo, wait until you are taller!
