The Tiny Christmas Tree Forrest! This forrest has eyes and tattles on to Santa you when you’re naughty.
They are knit up in (you guessed it!) Panda Silk. I’m not as happy with these guys as I am with my previous tinies. I would have prefered the green to be a little lighter to let the ornaments and eyes show a bit better and the yellow to be a little darker so the star on top really shines.
