Again this year, a dozen little knitted sheep have strayed from the flock and are hiding (mostly in plain sight) at Hamilton businesses. The "Sheep Trail" hunt is happening again from the Hamilton Downtown Association from December 13 to December 20th. Parents and their kids enjoy going to the participating stores and looking for the hand-sized creations from the Knotty Knitters. Each sheep has a name on it. To play, get a contest form from one of the stores or Chapter One Book Store and each time you find a sheep, mark down its name. Fill it out completely and get it to the entry box at Chapter One and the first 12 names drawn at random Saturday morning, December 21, will each get one of the sheep.

Where should you look? Try these places - The Paper Clip, The Land Trust, Big Sky Candy, Montana Bliss Art, Robbins, Mikesells Fine Jewelry, Main Street Toys, Fords Department Store, Second Street Artisans, Art City, Chapter One Book Store and Art Focus. Have fun!
