DIY: Sophisticated Mr. Fox!

He's here!!  What a handsome little Fox.

He loves nothing more than to casually observe your knitting, nonchalantly chill out in your garden, generally hang around looking cool.

 You can make him on Ravelry here :)    You'll need:

Needles: 3.25mm (UK) DPNs or circulars using the magic circle technique.
Rowan Fine Tweed 
Brown: 150m 
Green: 45m 
White & Brown: small amounts
Additional materials: 
buttons/toy eyes 
buttons for nose (& tail for optional decoration)
Note: if you choose, you can knit Mr. Fox in any size of yarn, adjusting your needles as appropriate. Obviously he may end up rather taller or shorter than the fingering weight version depending on the size you use :)

He already has friends across the country!  This is Deborah's handspun fox (he's called Ron).  

What have you got planned for this week?

Also, I'm going to Woolfest on the 29th!!  Rather excited!  I'm dragging my dear mum along.  She agreed to accompany me 'as long as I don't expect her to look enthusiastic'.  Ima trying to show her that knitting is cool...
