The candy cane hobby horses I made on my knitting machine - it is just a tube sort of - I did it in rows, folded it in half, seamed it together and then sewed on beady eyes, latch hooked on a mane, etc.. I was making things for craft shows and thought they would be popular - I bombed at craft shows sadly - I am considering doing some again in a year or so - not this fall but maybe the next ... we will see..... I would rather do some of the bizarre bazaars. I am going to talk to some friends of mine out of town and see if I can convince them to join me for a weekend to do one... okay it will take a lot of time to stock pile stock but that's all good. At least it will give me something to do with all the stash I have!!!
I think that Huntsville is saturated for craft show stuff - but then maybe my slightly twisted outlooks will help set me apart.. who knows...
What was I talking about? Oh yeah, candy cane hobby horses!
They are fun to make... next time I make them I am going to figure out how to just do them in one long continuous strip - using waste yarn between ornaments... when I did them the last time I had to ewrap on each time. For a hand knitter I am sure it would take no time at all but for a machine knitter ewrapping takes longer than making that ornament!
This was a fun swap. I am so glad I joined!
