Happy Ewe Year ♥ 2015 is the year of sheep
2015 is the year of the sheep/ram/goat, according to the Chinese Zodiac. Technically (as per the Lunar New Year and Spring Festival of China), this festive Year of the Sheep starts February 19, 2015 and lasts until February 7, 2016. I’m not sure what the connection is between sheep and horoscopes/astrology, but wool comes from sheep… And my nimble knitting fingers love working with wool! So the idea of dedicating an entire year to all things sheep sounds woolerful, to me 🙂
And with all the “Year of Sheep 2015” graphics already on the internet, I decided to have a little fun by creating my own 🙂 Now my sweet knitterly ewe is all dressed up, after a mini Bramble♥tini make-over… including hair/mascara, colour-coordinated slippers and hearty knitting on her needles 😉 Clicking the graphic will take you to MY DESIGNS (knitting patterns also available via Ravelry and Craftsy), for any of ‘yous’ knitters who may want to knit along! The year’s colour is MARSALA PANTONE 18-1438, which is PANTONE’s colour of the year for 2015.
So here’s to the start of an extra warm ‘n fuzzy year filled with all things sheepish!
And here is this year’s iPad video of our neighbour’s fireworks from New Year’s Eve!
