This puppet is the latest in my 2010 puppet knitting effort. In keeping with last year, I will aim to knit 100 puppets this year and they will all find good homes in the Samaritan's Purse 'Operation Christmas Child' Appeal.
This year I have been knitting puppets in batches of 10. Don't ask me why - it just makes the task a little less daunting and easier to keep track of how many puppets I've knitted. Jimmy the Jamaican will join a few other miscellaneous characters that I've made so far, including Santa Claus, Santa's little helper, a penguin and a duck. Suggestions for other little characters to make up my ten in this group are welcome (unless they're from the Fetcham Puppet Appreciation Society).
There's a set of 10 clown puppets in shades of blue, green and yellows, all with the same stripy pattern and the same happy smiley face.
The second set I've started has the theme of green wool - last year I was given some lovely bright green wool and so this next set will all be made using that. Here are the first 3.
