I recently gave a good friend and co-worker a darling set of finger puppets (a.k.a. puppers) in a Nantasket Basket. They were a breeze to knit up and a huge hit. Next time, I'll knit them in the round, even though the pattern is written to seam. Yuck. Didn't enjoy that part so much. Cute as a button!
My set included fuzzy bunny, stripey tiger, pink pig with corkscrew tail,elephant with a great trunk, and a friendly bear. I put them in a blue and white bag, tossed it all in a red Nantasket Basket, and put it all in a white bag from the LYS.
If I had knit the blue and white bag, it would have been all knitting, all the time!
