I just can’t help but put an exclamation point after every time I write Sheep Mittens! (!)

I get personally offended if someone tells me that they don’t like mittens. How can you not love something that keeps your hands so cosy and warm? And just the name! Mittens! So love-able!

They are Sheep! And Mittens!

So take my love of mittens, and my love of sheep (I’m a knitter! Of course I love sheep!) and out come these Sheep Mittens. Part toy, part very practical winter accessory, all adorable.

Look Out for that Sheep!
