My daughter is a "Speech Pathologist" and when I saw this hand-puppet pattern I kept saying I'd make it for her....well finally! Since she works in a school system  she had requested braces...I think just to make my life that much more difficult...
Pattern:-Chow, by Anita Mumm Wheeless. It can be found here
Yarn:- Patons Classic Wool, colours, bright red and winter white. I used Araucania Nature Wool, colour #42 for the tongue.
I used Sz#8 Double pointed needles.
Waxed dental floss for each tooth.
For the braces I used DMC Colour Infusions Memory Thread. This thread is a lot heavier than embroidery floss. I  was able to work with it and I made a 'french knot' on the middle of each tooth and then added a line of  stitches!
It really didn't take very long to do and it's so cute....I'm sure she's gonna love this little bit of whimsy!
I am trying to do a few things for Christmas.
Happy knitting everyone!
