Lambing season.

Fig&me and the lambing season.

So there you have it. I had to make lambs instead of bunnies this time around. I got one of those inspired moments and decided it was lambs. Initial idea was to knit their little outfits, then I fussed with cotton chenille, and went back to the knitting because I figure it would be much easier to dress them this way and also look a bit more organic. So here you have a whole crew of little lambs, wearing their hand knitted chunky wool overalls that close on back with twill ties.

Now, the upload is going to work split again. Tonight at 10 PM EST I will have four of these little lambs available for sale in my Etsy shop. Price is $120 USD plus postage charges. The ones available tonight will be: Emmett Romanov, Hudson Hampshire, Betsy Romney and Margaret Leicester.

Tomorrow at 9 AM EST, I will have the other four, available only to "Wee Baby Newbies". That means families who do not own a Wee Baby by Fig&me (Wee Babies are dolls such as the ones pictured, made with repurposed cashmere sweaters, measuring about 8" tall, wearing a "sleeper" and a sewn hat with ears: bunnies, bears, kittens, etc). The ones available tomorrow morning are: Mason Suffolk, Patrick Shropshire, Remy Merino and Bridgit Dorset.

So I will see some of you tonight, and some tomorrow. I hope these little ones find their homes without too much hassle. I can promise you they are ever so sweet in those chunky overalls. Good luck everybody!.
