This delightful project is one of many I want to make from Knitted Gifts.

Besides being such a cute little Hobby Horse, it is a lesson on the structure of hand-knit socks. A perfect project for someone who has been thinking of knitting socks. Just look at the un-felted version of the over-sized sock.

After just a bit of felting and some finishing, the sock magically transforms into a toy!

Even though several weeks passed between when I started this project and finishing, it is actually a very quick knit.

Wouldn't you just love to knit this horse!! This giveaway will include Ann Budd's book and the Wool of the Andes yarn you will need in the colors of your choice. All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog. I will draw a name next Friday - March 5th.

I have seen this book and all the projects are great. But the Hobby Horse. How could a young child resist prancing around with this cute horsey! I would love to make one.

A delightful toy for a child and a fun project for the knitter.

Kelley, like SBLK I would love to make this for a grandchild. Although ds is only 17 I think I should start now to make sure he has a good supply of soft gifts. I really want to tackle making a sock so this would be the perfect project - no second sock syndrome possibility!

It's amazing to realize that the horse's head is basically a sock! I never would have guessed!
