Notes

This was so fun to knit, but way more fun to wear! It’s like having a friend hanging around your neck. :)

I pretty much made this to wear to the tinyowlknits meet & greet at Fancy Tiger Crafts on the 3rd May. I actually sewed the skirt I’m wearing in the photo of Stephanie and me (2nd from the top) to match my little fox.

In regards to his name, I was trying to come up with something funny incorporating mini or jr. and Barty Fox Jr. was the first thing that popped into my head. ;)

The silver-grey alpaca I used for his body was purchased at a little mill in Kansas. The alpaca’s name on the label is Morning Star and if I could meet her, I’d let her know that she has the softest alpaca fleece that I have ever felt. ♥
