October #freebeefridayknits

Yes, another two months have gone by and normally I’d say “OMG how they’ve flown” - but actually, they haven’t really this time… don’t know why but I consider that a good thing!!

Anyhow - here’s your October-y (Northern hemisphere-wise) - i.e Autumnal little free fellow

He’s one of my favourites actually - and that fluffy tail makes him (he’s no Squirrel Nutkin with that tail, that’s for sure - do you know the story?)

The fluffy yarn (James C. Brett Faux Fur) - I found to be one the easiest to knit with - so that’s no bother at all…

The other yarns I’ve chosen are the Drops Alpaca and Kid yarns - knitted together for that fur-tone effect - which you know I adore…

And, I think the only other think to mention are the oval eyes - I knew what I wanted and was really thrilled to find it exactly - AAAND they’re easy to source - eBay or Etsy - these ones the 9mm ones…

And finally - if you want to see more of the same (i.e little knitted creatures a-plenty - then do come over to my place @dotpebbles_knits
