More finger puppets to add to the Advent Calendar collection. The free pattern for the barnyard animals came from the TLC website. The wise men, star and camels are my own design. Again, mostly knitted with DK yarn on 3.75mm needles. The star was crocheted and then stitched on to a white body, and the wise men’s gifts were crocheted using metallic cord.

I’ve been working on some finger puppets this week – I’m making two sets, one for my Advent Calendar, and one for a friend. Here are the first ten. All knitted with DK yarn and 3.75mm needles. Faces are made of felt and sewn on.

sloppy hat fuzzed


Slouchy hat – yet another Christmas present. Getting there. Pattern from Let’s Knit Magazine. DK knit wool. Using a lot of slip stitch for the patterning, which I’ve discovered is rather boring!

Bright socks for a Christmas present. Double-knit wool, knitted in the round on 3.75mm needles.  Knitted to match a pair I made for teddy-bear earlier this summer!
