Let It Snow!
Even in the depths of winter, nature still finds a way to brighten up our days with the fun and excitement of building snowmen. Alan Dart has captured all this joy in his latest creation, a snowman that feels as soft as snow, decorated with authentic-looking coal eyes, a carrot nose and brightly coloured accessories!
Alan has given the snowman a sweet Christmas tree to hold, inspired by some of his own Victorian decorations. Although you should take your time to get the best finish, Christmas is fast approaching, so start knitting soon. As Alan says, “There’s snow time like the present to knit yourself this frosty fellow!”
