Meet Mr Tod

mr todI married a fabulous surname; here in Cheshire it’s very unusual to meet another Todhunter, but up in Cumbria (where Mr T is from), you’ll find pages and pages of us in the phone book.

You may remember Beatrix Potter wrote a book about Mr Tod, the crafty fox. This may give you a clue to the origins of our name.

At the moment he’s sitting on the kitchen shelf “doing time” as an egg cosy, but who knows what his future will be. I have in mind a series of “woodland friends” who may join him, but on the other hand I so rarely make tiny crochet he might just sit here gathering dust …

    Thanks for giving Mr Tod such a warm welcome, he now has several tiny friends and I’ve loved making them. Look out for an update soon on his progress.

#knittersofinstagram #knitting #knitmas #handmadechristmas #makingchristmas More from Mother in Law's knitivity - Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus - this always reminds me of school nativity plays, where the girl playing the angel always manages to be centre stage!!!
#knitivity #knittednativity #knitmas #knittersofinstagram Happy knitmas! My Mother in Law has unpacked her knitted decorations, here are the three kings, part of the nativity scene which grows every year and now fills the window ledge!
