This delightful project is one of many I want to make from Knitted Gifts.

Besides being such a cute little Hobby Horse, it is a lesson on the structure of hand-knit socks. A perfect project for someone who has been thinking of knitting socks. Just look at the un-felted version of the over-sized sock.

After just a bit of felting and some finishing, the sock magically transforms into a toy!

Even though several weeks passed between when I started this project and finishing, it is actually a very quick knit.

Wouldn't you just love to knit this horse!! This giveaway will include Ann Budd's book and the Wool of the Andes yarn you will need in the colors of your choice. All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog. I will draw a name next Friday - March 5th.

Super Cute!! When I saw this project I knew my daughter would love it, since her new favorite past-time is pretending to ride any toy (and sometimes the dog) around the house.

What a great gift the horse would make to a little boy that has a birthday coming up.

This is really a cute Idea I never thought of a sock in this way. Now you got my mind working on what else a sock can be turned into.

How cute! This would be a perfect gift for my 5 year old nephew, and for one who is due any day now. It would a great companion to the cowboy Mr. Foster I am making for the impending arrival. I love the two button eyes. They add lots of personality. :o) Wendy
