In 2014, a friend of mine shared on her timeline the photo in this photo. What cute sheep they are! If I recall correctly, and I may not, they are Scottish Blackface. (I was corrected, they are Valais Blacknose from Switzerland) So I then said to myself, I can make those! I started the project. I crocheted the basic amigurumi, and started to individually place, like latch hook, then separate hundred upon thousands, now probably tens of thousands of strands of hair. I had put it away unfinished for half a year or more, and recently brought him out again. Today, I added his ears, and he is done! (Even his face is furry!)  I'd like your opinion....what should his (or her) name be?

Wonderful looking horned, fluffy sheep!  It's great that you didn't give up over such a long period of time and followed through to complete it.

How about Lambert?  (Lamb-bert, get it? Grin)  When it comes to naming things, I recommend keeping one of those "Name Your Baby" books around the house--very useful!  Just flip through either the boys or girls section and you're sure to find something you like (I mainly use it to name my player characters in RPGs)

What an adorable sheep!
It must have taken an incredible amount of time to finish and it shows. He is just perfect.

That is so funny; one of my good friends suggested Lambert too! I may have to go with it!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Thank you! And thanks for the correction on the type of sheep they are. I honestly couldn't remember.

It's all good!  I keep seeing the meme going around claiming babydoll southdown lambs are alpaca babies.... I really honestly can't help it. Definitely not meant to be rude at all.  I just love me some sheep!

I wasn't upset at all. As soon as you said the correct name, I was like, "Duh!" and remembered!
