Another Monday, More FOs!





Though they may look like extended family, they're really bottle toppers. They're Christmas gifts for my co-workers. Aren't they cute? I used some of the leftover yarns from my Parcheesi blankie. They're very quick to make. Their beards are wool top, and the eyes are actually beads (I wanted them to have "beady" eyes). I used this pattern:

Elves, Gnomes, Wizards, Santa and Leo Tolstoy....by Kristin Nicholas
It's a freebie. The best kind. My beards are a little thicker, and I may yet trim them, but we'll see. I also should have made their eyes a little larger.......





Here they are at work.

Too cute! In that last picture the one on the right looks like he may have gotten into some wine or something. You never did say what kind of "bottles" they are supposed to top. LOL
