    Oscar and Florida Snow

    Just a quickie as I have to dash. I just had to post this adorable little Donkey that I finished knitting. I named him Oscar lol. I found him on the web and just had to do him, He was a bit tricky to do. Then I thought you would like to see some Florida snow lol and my babies just love it.

    He is so adorable and I think it was with your choices of yarn.

    That little donkey is the cutest thing. I would love to know how to knit like that. Your fur babies are just adorable.

    Thank you ladies, the snow is from the Rain Trees in my yard. Every year they shed yellow and pink leaf like flowers, we just love them and we don't rake them lol. When they get old we just hose the patio and in the yard they just go under with the grass..

    I have some request for the donkey pattern. I got him at Ravelry for free. Now the pattern is not perfect as some instruction is missing IMHO. Where it says to increase and decrease, the next row should be a knit row....and so on...if you knit then you will see where to make adjustments. I am not that experienced a knitter and I was able to manage, here is the link...

    That little donkey is just adorable. If you leave him out in that Florida snow, he may leave for Disney, so be careful!

    Oscar is super cute! I love how chubby he looks from behind. The rain tree pods are pretty. They look as if they could be strung up and used as a Christmas garland, but they may be too fragile for that.
