I’ve had all the bits ready for ages, but rather like Callistemon with her Nativity bits, I kept putting off the stuffing and sewing up. The wreath they’ll be going on - not far off finished - is the much less faffy bit.

Just gorgeous!

In one afternoon 😯
They're cute

That wasn’t the knitting, @ninathenana, just the putting together - I had a production line going on the dining room table.

Lovely Witzend !
You are forgiven the C-word connection!

They are really cute and will look lovely on the planned wreath. I hope we get to see photos of the finished item Witzend

Well worth the trouble!

Many thanks for all kind words. Apologies for C-word connotations but I’m making a lot for raffles at Gdcs’ ’ school C-word fairs, so can’t leave it all until autumn.

This is actually my 3rd snowman wreath - this was the prototype, @nortsat. I’ve still got to finish the wreath and knit the bow.

They're incredibly adorable! Awwww..
Actually, if they had a tiny bit of velcro on their backs they'd be grand pick-your-own gifts at the end of a childrens party.

Well, I've got the sprouts on so I really should start tackling wonky Mary and the wobbly Three Wise Men.
Baby Jesus is finished and asleep in his manger.

Well done, Witzend they are lovely.

Witzend well done, we all want one! I could certainly embrace a snowman right now, mini ones included.

I wonder if the pattern is in my Christmas knitting book?

But first, I must .....

That’s lovely 😀

I dare say I’m bonkers/addicted (I’m sure dh thinks so though he’s too polite to say it) but I’m now embarking on the same wreath in autumn colours, a Halloween wreath for Gdcs.
Have just made Bernard Bloodfang, the vampire bat, to adorn it.

Next will be a big black hairy spider,
Not that I’ve started the actual wreath yet, yarn only arrived this morning.
