Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,
Holiday knitting is a hot topic already this season and it is only getting hotter. Knitters are planning and making lists and some already have a good start on their gift knitting for the quickly approaching holiday season.
Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts Issue 2009 is hitting the stands on October 27th and we are proud to say that Spud & Chloë’s Fine is making an appearance in the magazine. Marcy Smith designed and knitted these adorable finger puppets called, BFF Finger Puppets. The photograph above is courtesy of Interweave Knits magazine. The girl in pink looks to be crochet and the girl in blue is knit. Good work, Marcy, the puppets are very sweet. I can think of all kinds of adventures that these two best friends could take together.
Here is some important information about the project:

We thought you might enjoy this sneak peek at one of the projects from this popular issue from the talented people at Interweave. I know I will be grabbing my copy as soon as it hits the stands! Who could resist a cute pair of finger puppets? I have a few little people around who would love to receive these for a gift. Another option would be to add a loop on top and the puppets could be cute ornaments for your tree.
