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.

It is very cute...:)
It could have been my first felting project, but I have just started a kitty pi. There is nothing wrong with being number two though!

How cute! It would be great to win, socks scare me so I've yet to try, but the hobby horse is so cute, I wouldn't be afraid!

I love your blog! So informative, and it provides many creative project ideas. It makes sense that socks could be turned into things - just think about the classic sock monkey. Cute horse, adorable for a little one.
