Painted Ponies

 I can't believe we are already fast approaching the holiday season. Our church's holly fair is next Saturday. I pulled out some odds and ends of yarn that I have in my stash and whipped up some cute candy cane ponies (Candy Cane Pony Pattern from Hollinger's Fiber Farm ) to sell at the fair. This years herd of ponies are of the pastel/painted variety. Not at all realistic looking color wise, but I do think they resemble the "my little ponies" of yester-year!

They were fun to make. They are all a little different. No two are alike. I made a dozen ponies with Brach's Candy Canes made with real peppermint oil, plus 4 were made with candy cane pens that I bought last year after Christmas.
Check out my ponies:

They are super easy and fun to make. Great use for odds and ends of yarn.  Click here find out more about my candy cane ponies.

  4. Those ponies are ADORABLE!! It's really a clever pattern.

    I can't believe how the year has flown by, either. We decided to free ourselves from the commercial side of the holidays though so there's no rush here. :D

    Hope the folks up your way are fully recovered from Sandy.

    Have a great week!
