Today I'm working on...Mr Fox.
I've had the perfect foxy shade of yarn in my stash for a while now, left over from my Ringwood sweater.
Camelino, which is sadly discontinued. I really liked it because it stood up so well to frogging, and is soft and sproingy. I did wonder for a minute if it was a bad idea to make a fox out of camel fur- would the other foxes laugh at him? But I decided, at the end, that I would love him and that's all that matters.
Because, yes, even though I have several Christmas presents on the needles I am making this stole for myself. Selfish, once again.
So, yeah, I'm actually having a bit of difficulty with the straight needles. These ones are 14" which apparently is just long enough to bother me. I have been working so much on circulars lately...
Anyways, back to knitting. I'll just leave you with a picture of how he's meant to look when he's done:
Anyways, as always, link back to Tami's Amis for more great projects!
