Little Red Riding Hood

 All the knitting is done now of the Little Red Riding Hood Story bag, so I thought I would update you all in the yarn along, that Ginny holds every Wednesday over at Small Things.  There were a few false starts, and I ended up using a different pattern for the wolf in the end, as I wasn't happy with my first attempt.  I have tried to match the clothes and hair colour to the characters in the book I have picked to tell this story.  Except for the wolf, as he changes his clothes in the story, and I couldn't hope to try to do removeable clothes!!
 Mother, Little Red, and Grandma.  In the book Grandma has glasses, but I couldn't work out how to do those! Not sure whether to put a mouth on Little Red either, as she expresses many different emotions during the course of the story.
 Apologies for the sideways pictures.  Silly camera!!

There wasn't a woodcutter in this version, which meant a little less knitting for me!

Just got the bag to do now, and they'll be off to their new home in Ireland.    As for reading, still working through "Car Sick" with a little Thicht Naht Hahn's "A Path to Emancipation" thrown in for good measure!


  1. They're lovely Claire! I think Little Red looks good without a mouth, so many more possibilities eh! xx

  2. You can always do Red's mouth the Waldorf, non committal fashion - just one line ;)
    But what a delightful set this is!

  3. Those are so darling! I agree that no mouth or a little one is good. Then she can go through her whole range of emotions in the story!

  4. They are lovely, looks quite fiddly to do.

  5. They are gorgeous!

  6. I agree, too! With no mouth you can use your imagination with each stage of the story. These are absolutely incredible! I really wish I had the patience to knit something like this, so teensy!


Pull up a chair, have a cuppa and some cake, and if you feel like it, leave a comment.
