Frosty The Snowman

Two weeks ago I had a request from Olly to knit him a Christmas jumper(sweater)!!!! At the rate I work it was never going to happen so I offered to embellish a bought one for him. Christmas sweaters are the latest rage and I shall be taking commissions in readiness for next year. Any takers? Yes that carrot is protruding and I think it is going to have to be re sewn a few times. I may also have to visit him in jail when he gets arrested for indecency.  It has caused such merriment. Practice crochet snowflakes came in handy too along with a tie from a boxful that I have been hoarding. Hexagons for eyes. Well, it just wouldn't be right to have a post with no hexagons would it?

 
Just leaves me to say wishing you all a Merry Christmas. Have fun.
 
Love Shirley.x

  4. WOW that is some creation and total fun! I am sure Peter is sighing with relief that we don't wear jumpers at this time of year as I would definitely be creating one for him. Enjoy your Christmas day.

  11. That sweater is A-Ma-Zing!! Olly looks like he's well chuffed with it too. Bet you are swamped with commissions very soon. Do you need an agent?
    I hope you are good at baking cakes with files in them.... I think that's a skill you are going to need!
