Sheepishly Presenting...

The Sheep Carousel!!!!!

Still needs some sort of blocking to even out the stitches, but I don't have the right-sized teapot...

Finish 1

Finish 2

The bottom is edge is a bit tight, but nothing I can do about that after the event!

Also, I didn't pick up stitches around the handle and spout openings as I had the feeling these would stick out like little frills... It didn't need it anyway as the turned-in steeked facings gave a nice, neat edge.

Handle opening

I found it hard to get a good picture... it does look better than this - honest!

As Regula from Babajazas Wundertute said, I am already forgetting the pain this pattern caused me...

Ah the steeking is done. It looks wonderful Penny.

I like your friend Regula's comment about the pain. Makes it sound a bit like childbirth lol :)

Too adorable, and very ME!

Do let me know if you pop down to my charity shops! Here they are:

Of course they are different each time you visit. And I did pay a fair price for the ├ędrodons - 20€ for one but 30€ for the two, which is good but hardly bargain basement...
