Rudolph the Red nosed Reindeer

Good morning to you all, T.G.I.F !!!!!

It seems to have been a hectic week for some reason. My son has been home since Saturday, I took him back to Oxford yesterday (2hrs driving there and 2hrs driving back!!!!). When he stays I have to give up my craft room - well it was his bedroom originally, so I haven't been able to get on with what I wanted to do what with going Christmas shopping etc .......
 .......having said that, I have just completed this reindeer. It was a free kit with "Knit Today" magazine - latest issue. The kit contained the wool, embroidery thread, ribbon, bell and stuffing. The wool was 25g - but it wasn't enough, so I wrote to the magazine who very kindly sent me another kit so that I had enough wool to complete.
 The first photograph is a bit dark, he looks better in these !!
 He is 5 1/2 inches high in the sitting position.
It was easy enough to knit, with the instructions very clear and precise.
Have a great weekend, what ever you are doing x


  1. looks cute, you are clever, xxx

  2. Gorgeous Janice, love the little fella and how good of the magazine to send you more wool, wonder how many others asked lol!

    I know how it feel my craft desk is in my sons bedroom so like today had to wait for him to get up before I could get in there lol! What are we like? I need a nice room to myself that I can fill with more craft goodies lol! cannot see me getting one any time soon!!!

    Love & Hugs
