I apologize for posting this off season, I meant to do it earlier. After reading an article here in MWK, around Christmas, about a Knitting Santa, I had wanted to make one for my spoilee in the Scarf project. I searched the internet but found little next to nothing. I thought about making one from scratch. But shortly thereafter, in my local hobby store, I ran across a Santa carrying nuts, berries and a twig with a great old fashioned outfit. I deconstructed the decorative ornament and repurposed it into a knitting Santa. I think it came out pretty good; but, I'm biased. I bought all the "dolls" they had in stock (Hobby Lobby); thinking they would make nice gifts next year... with modifications of course.
