Felt Foxes

Foxes are amazing and beautiful animals. Recently I had the pleasure to meet Fred the Fox in Hessilhead Wildlife Rescue. I've never been so close to a fox in my life and Fred is such a friendly lil fellow. Shame, I didn't take a photo of him, I'll do it next time I'm there.

So inspired by Fred I've made two felt foxes. One is wearing a floral bow, another chunky knitted scarf. They're both like to stay classy in the woods :)

How to knit Herringbone stitch

So I decided to learn Herringbone stitch.
It's a beautiful stitch and so nice to touch, it's dense, squishy and warm. It is a bit fiddly initially, but  easy to learn and I really enjoyed it!
