      Thanks, AuntieM. My first question was going to be “What are they?” so I can look up where to get one (or many)!

    That’s some powerful, Japan-level cute, right thar. I want one. Unless one would be lonely at my house, in which case I’ll take two.

    Looks like an episode of the sheep version of The Twilight Zone.

  5. allein February 9, 2016 / 11:18 am

    Are we sure they aren’t plushies?

    • Ellie's Maid February 9, 2016 / 6:55 pm

      I wondered the same thing!

    OMG! I LOFF DEM!

  7. Lurkingduck February 9, 2016 / 11:50 am

    They remind me of a Doctor Who episode.

    • debg February 9, 2016 / 12:01 pm

      The clockwork people in 18th-century France? I was thinking that too!

      • Lurkingduck February 9, 2016 / 12:44 pm

        I was thinking of the one where Rose loses her face. “The Idiot’s Lantern”? But, yes, I can see the clockwork people.

        • debg February 9, 2016 / 5:49 pm

          Many faceless Who episodes there are!

  8. Gigi the cat lady February 9, 2016 / 11:50 am

    They look like something Jim Henson would of dreamed up.

  9. D B February 9, 2016 / 12:11 pm

    The Sheep of Christmas Yet to Come! But absolutely adorable and plusheep!

  10. AJ February 9, 2016 / 12:23 pm

    OMG, found even better pic. Look at that little pink tongue!!!! There so cute just like a stuffie that I don’t just want one but I NEED one.

      • 6rabbits February 9, 2016 / 3:19 pm

        Snerk!

      • Ellie's Maid February 9, 2016 / 6:58 pm

        HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

    I bet you could knit* something fabulous from those long curly strands of wool! What gorgeous sheeple! I assume there are eyes in there somewhere, but it really doesn’t matter with those beyoootiful coats!

    *(Why, yes, when I see sheep, my thoughts immediately turn to the yarn you can spin from their wool. If there’s anything wrong with that, don’t tell me!)

    • Patty February 9, 2016 / 12:26 pm

      My first thought was “how would that yarn feel?”
      I don’t knit, I crochet.

      • Laura February 9, 2016 / 2:03 pm

        Have you seen the wedding dress, Patty, made by the woman from the long curly fleece of her sheep? It’s a thing of beauty indeed! Just like these lovely sheep! Although her sheep didn’t have the black accents.

      • 6rabbits February 9, 2016 / 3:21 pm

        That would be some eXtra pluffy yarn! (Crocheter, here.)

        • debg February 9, 2016 / 5:50 pm

          I edit knitting magazines and have worked with SpinOff magazine in the past. Ravelry needs a NOMTOM group, maybe?

  12. Haha February 9, 2016 / 12:41 pm

    So many questions
    Are they nice or would they poke me with their cute curly horns?
    How deep would my fingers sink into the floof?
    Do they get shaved? And if they do, do they look just as cute shorn? If shorn does the same coloring pattern stay?
    How soft or itchy is something made from their floof?
    Would a naturally deceased after a long nice life make a great taxidermy footstool for my living room? Hmm different seasonal decorations/ facial expressions. 🙂 Ha!

    • Haha February 9, 2016 / 12:44 pm

      Also, now I want to hear the tintinnabulation of the bells from AJ’s picture.

      • Saffron February 9, 2016 / 1:24 pm

        Poe reference!

    • birdcage February 9, 2016 / 12:55 pm

      Oddly (or not), I also had a passing “hmmmm, perhaps a footstool?” thought when I regarded this photo.

      • Haha February 9, 2016 / 2:44 pm

        Birds of a feather….
        Great minds knit thoughts alike…

  13. Margaret February 9, 2016 / 2:59 pm

    I know they’re trying to be all mean and scary but all I can see are all the wonderful things I can knit with them!

    • Haha February 9, 2016 / 5:12 pm

      Murkle46! Thank you for finding that for us! Yay!

    • Ellie's Maid February 9, 2016 / 7:02 pm

      Ooooooo!!! Oooooooo! They aren’t stuffies!!!!! I want one!!!!!

    • Smartypants February 9, 2016 / 7:55 pm

      Oh, they’re just like the sheep in the Wile E. Coyote cartoon with the sheepdog, when they both punch the time clock…? Wonderful!

  14. 6rabbits February 9, 2016 / 3:39 pm

    Lambs!

    • Brouhaha February 9, 2016 / 4:30 pm

      kneepads!

      • Haha February 9, 2016 / 5:13 pm

        I love the knees!

        • debg February 9, 2016 / 5:51 pm

          I let out an audible gasp. The whole office turned to look.

    • Ellie's Maid February 9, 2016 / 7:03 pm

      AUGH!!!!!!!!!!!! The cuteness is killing me!!!!!
