Well, this is a riot.  I received this knitting book for Christmas and it’s an absolute riot.  As you might think, it goes through the whole song of Twelve Days of Christmas and there are the props you can/must knit to people the scene.  New Year’s Resolution: let’s use “people” as a verb.

Fiona Goble must be a fascinating person to sit beside at a dinner table—–what other concoctions has she dreamt of and made knitting books about??

I love them all, but I think the funniest/best are the twelve drummers drumming.  Gosh! they would be fun to have next year on a table, or maybe marching around the tree . . .
