Little Elf Guys

img_2917_lowresWhen my son was little, and his school had a fairly constant need for donations to fall festivals and “events” of one sort or another, I probably knitted about 30 sets of these guys to donate and as presents for teachers.  It is a Weir Doll pattern, from Susan Weir of Ann Arbor, Michigan.  An easy knit.  I always stuff my knitted toys with unspun wool, rather than with that stiff polyester fiberfill.  It’s a pricey stuffing–but works so much better.  No lumps!
