Again this year, tiny knitted sheep will be spending time in various Hamilton businesses, waiting to be found.

"Follow the Sheep Trail" is a collaboration between the Hamilton Downtown Association the the Knotty Knitters Guild of Hamilton. The knitters create about a dozen fluffy sheep and the Hamilton Downtown Association place them at HDA member locations.

Kids and their families then look for the sheep from Friday December 8 to Friday, December 15. When they find the sheep, they jot down the name of that sheep (such as Ram-bo or Ewe-nice) on an entry form. That completed form is brought to Chapter One Book Store at 3rd and Main.

On December 16 at 1 p.m., the first dozen names pulled out in a random drawing of the completed forms win the sheep.

So, follow the sheep trail and have fun!
