Father Fox

by Joanna

 Have you seen the Lester Fox pattern by Lucinda Guy? I fell in love with it the first moment I saw it in Knits Weekend. I knew there was something comfy and familiar looking about this little guy, but I wasn't exactly sure why...


And then it struck me. He looks so much like Father Fox, from one of my favorite storybooks, Father Fox's Pennyrhymes. This book is long out of print but very worth the tracking down if you are inclined toward poetic homespun books with great illustrations.


I am so excited to have my own Father Fox to go along with my treasured storybook. I think I might need to knit up a Mother Fox, too...
