FO: Puppets
Okay.. so we had a few friends coming in, and I know she's a professional knitter and a good friend of the wife..

So I hear she was coming in on friday (Yesterday) so I quickly found this pattern in one of my books.. And got some yarn..

These are supposed to be finger puppets, but I couldn't find any 4 ply yarn.. all I could find was worsted weight.. took me 2 days to finish (not full days mind you).

But I got 'em done.. in this picture you see our friends next to ther mini-me's ... The green guy in the middle, that's Frank.. The guy in the picture makes these sock guys..

She seemed to like the little puppets.. and I enjoyed makin' em.. I don't often get to have fo's.. as I don't usually finish my projects

The girl finger puppet looks just like your red headed friend, but you forgot your man friend's beard. LOL Is the green thing the 'sock guy' that he made? Fun stuff.

Those are awesome. The personalization of making them just for your friends is so sweet. good job finishing something up, and they look great.
