Little Owls and Red Fox

Hi Knitters,
I have the last bunch of home photos of the Woodland Forest Animals that are currently in the issue, Knit Simple Holiday 2010, that is on the stands right now.

Click here for the Ravelry project page for more information!
The Little Owls pattern is so fun. The owl is small, about 5 inches tall and 3 inches wide.
The owls are made out of Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton, one of my all-time faves.
Included in the magazine is a tutorial on making and putting the little owl together. It is very well done, step by step! I love the way these little owl parts look.
I made three versions of the same pattern, a two-toned owl, a simple fair-isle owl and a striped version.
What a fun and quick project!
Red Fox was the final project I made for Knit Simple. There aren't too many fox patterns out there so I was excited to whip up this little guy.
Click here for the Ravelry project page for Red Fox to see more details!
Red Fox is about 5 inches tall and a little over 4 inches long from front to back and about 2 1/1 inches wide.
I love the way his feet look like little brown boots.

The whole Woodland Friends feature has been so much fun. I love seeing the finished toys popping up on Ravelry already. They are all fast knits. Click here to check out all of the projects for this issue on Ravlery.

Next up? I am planning a very fun and different type of giveaway. I have so many giveaways lined up that I've got to get going on them soon or they will take me over!

Have a good Wednesday.
best, susie
