the sweetest, cutest thing in the whole of the world (and some of his friends)

Although I am normally drawn to knitted clothing patterns, I couldn’t resist buying this pattern for a knitted toy (awwwww, so so cute). How could I pass up a pattern with a caption mentioning the "dandy of the glade"?

Considering that a dandy is someone who "places particular importance upon physical appearance, refined language, and leisurely hobbies, pursued with the appearance of nonchalance in a cult of Self" (according to wikipedia) this cute fawn has a lot on his plate. That red bow certainly spiffs him up a treat. I bought it from this lovely lady: http://www.thevintageknittinglady.co.uk


Here are some more from the same place that I’m not sure I can resist for long:
