Merry Christmas and last minute gifts
It is the 23rd of December, and I've just finished my last minutes gifts; I wasn't going to do this, but I found this charming pattern for a little fox, and just had to make three of them as stocking stuffers for my nephews :-)
The pattern can be found at this link: Genuine Mudpie Squinty Fox . The pattern is quick, simple, and very well written. I made three of them last night! I plan to add a little beaded lanyard to the top so the boys can clip them to a zipper pull or backpack. They stand about 2 3/4 inches tall from the base to the tip of their ears.
And, as a Christmas gift, I have a pattern for a small wardrobe of tiny knit outfits for small (5 1/2 inch) dolls. I used my tiny Simply Ami dolls for models; they are a little over 5 inches when worked with fingering weight yarn and a size 1 steel hook. These knits should also fit Nancy Ann Storybook Dolls, and BJD's in the 12 to 16 cm size range.

The outfits are knit with fingering weight yarn and size 0 (2.00mm) double point needles. The pattern includes pull over sweaters, pants, pinafore dress and rompers. The elf hat the girls are wearing is from my Pocket Spirit Christmas Hat pattern (found on the left sidebar of this blog) worked in fingering weight yarn and a size 1 steel crochet hook.
However you celebrate the holiday season, I hope it is filled with love of family, and childlike joy!
