In Support of Dorothy's Efforts

Dorothy is generosity and caring in the flesh. If you can spare the time, please join in to overwhelm the IWK with finger puppets to brighten some child's day. Together we can make a difference.
These are my first two, made from leftover sock yarn. What I did: knit in the round on 4dpns, I cast on 6,6,4 on each respective needle, k1p1 first round and stockingette stitch the rest, approx 2" long, then k1, k2tog on second to last round, then k2tog on last round and bound off. Get creative with the face to make kids smile.

WOOHOO!!! Great looking puppets!!
Pretty much the same way I do them now too.
Remember, leave me a comment sometime with a number of puppets completed in it, and I'll add it to the total.
