santa reindeer

Finally, everything came together last night, and we got the Santa Reindeer pattern done! I actually listed it last night (Lulu, Etsy), but was too lazy to blog about it. Good thing the toys are small and quick to knit, so there is still plenty of time to make one before the holidays. Someone already finished a super nice one on Ravelry, so I know the pattern is all good! I'm kind of curious how the toy would look with bigger antlers too, if anyone decides to get creative. Felt might work better than trying to knit them, which is why the pattern just has little baby antlers knit in I-cord.

I've also made the old reindeer pattern free. It's so different from all my other patterns, and I've never knit it again myself, so I felt bad about charging for it. I've sold a few copies since I published it, but I don't know if anyone else has knit it either. Maybe when I've got some time over the winter, I'll knit another one and keep it for myself this time, instead of selling it.
