Well, it’s not quite April yet, but I’m learning that in this sales game, you have to be at least a month ahead of real time. It’s not easy thinking Spring colours and Spring thoughts in the middle of winter, but that’s what I’ve been doing to design 2 new sheep knitting kits for the Spring.
So let me introduce you to April…
She’s got a lovely soft lemon fleece. It’s the colour of Spring and, as soon as the primroses are out in the garden, I’ll be photographing her with them.
She wasn’t always named April. People ask me how I decide on the names for the sheep. Actually, they name themselves. They sit on my desk for a little while when they are finished, and, at some point, their name will come into my head. I don’t know if they bleat it softly or whether it’s telepathy, but their name just pops up. I also had a good friend at school called April, so it’s nice to know her name lives on!
April is on sale in my etsy shop, for a special introductory price until the end of (you’ve guessed it!) April.
She also has a sister, but more about her next time….
