Maggie Knits Herself a Boyfriend June 28, 2012

Maggie the sheep loves to knit. She enjoys taking her little patch of luscious green grass everywhere. Her favourite flavour of ice cream is Vanilla because when it drips, the ice cream doesn’t get all over her nice white coat. So you may be wondering where Maggie goes to buy wool… well I don’t know but she always has three bags full.

    So darling! I love Maggie! I am partial to little Lambs! I call one of my daughters Lambily (Her name is Emily and she is as sweet as a Lamb). You are so clever! Can’t wait to see how Maggie’s boyfriend turns out. I hope he is everything she is dreaming of!

    • Thank you!!!! I took forever to come up with the name Maggie, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the name LAMBILY!!! I wish I came up with that name instead! If Maggie doesn’t like her boyfriend, she can always pull the string while he’s sleeping hahaha

    Oh my God! I Love her! I am lying in my bed about to set the alarm on my phone for the morning but couldn’t resist to read your post after I saw the title!
    Looky how cute she is! I love her little patch of grass and tuft of hair on her head!
    I hope her new boyfriend loves her even more than I do :D

    • awwww thank you again for your awesome comment!!!! I wish I was able to capture all the sparkles in the yarn (her body actually glitters in the sunlight!), but it was too hard =p Oh, i’m sure her new boyfriend would love her, she’s perfect!!

  4. I just love her, and HE will be just as delicious, no doubt! Well done, thanks for sharing!

  5. […] is a post that made my day, have a look at Maggie knits herself a boyfriend and HAVE A GOOD […]

  6. Sooo cute & fluffy!! I love how you made a little story with her. Although Maggie has the right idea to make a custom boyfriend;)

  7. bubblegirlout Says:

    So well done and such a good post! I love Maggie !!!! I love the “knits a boyfriend” that made me laugh. Oh if it was that easy…… ;)

    I love this..your work is always so perfectly executed and adorable! You are a very big inspiration!!

  10. I’d say … Are the patterns for other specimen, too ….? ;-)

    • I quite like the book for where this pattern came from! There’s a pattern in the book for a cat, dog, cow, piglets, chicken, and mice!!! I haven’t tried, but I’m sure you can use the sheep’s head for another animal, like making longer ears so it looks like a bunny! :D

      • That sounds so great! A couple of days ago, I picked up a book with instructions for knitted toys and stuffed animals in the local library – but they looked aweful. I’ll definitely have a look at that book now! :)

      • The book also tells a story which is really cute!! I’m sure the library would have it!! :D

      • Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! Oh I love it when you get something like this!!! :) :) :)

        but I am afraid, they won’t have it in our library – we only have a small section for English books, and it is all literature, no crafting books. ;) But I’ll search online for it for sure :)

      • awwww good luck finding the book!!!!

  11. I just want to jump into the computer and grab her! Clever you! How talented you are!

    Adorable, and just the cutest story to go with it! Lovely pictures too – what sort of camera do you use?

    Although, Maggie ought to be a black sheep to go with the nursery rhyme, no? (She’s perfect the way she is, though!)

    • Thank you!! i’m using the Nikon D300 :) I thought about knitting a black sheep but didn’t know what colour to use for the eyes so I ended up going for all white :D Thank you again for your comment!
