Meet Lowell

My first Foxxy Commission!
During Thanksgiving my Auntie Carmen asked me if I would knit her a foxxy.
We picked the yarn out up in Portland.
And I have to say that it was the most wonderful yarn store I have ever been in...

the yarn is a blend of 67%Acrylic 14%wool, 10% polyester, 9% mohair
the color is called Smoke Ring.
they are the largest skeins of yarn I have ever seen.

Since the yarn was to thin on its own we decided that I would knit it with two strands at once.
it worked pretty well.

The Skeins where so large that for my work basket I used one of our laundry baskets!

I have to say, as much as I loved the yarn it was a pain working with it. mostly because I had to match the color gradations.
But in the end it looked pretty good, if I do say so my self.

He is, by far, the best one yet! I am so very pleased with how he came out!!!
It was one of the hardest times I have had giving up one of my children :(
But I am so happy that I was able to make him for my wonderful Auntie!

Meet Lowell the Fox.
This wise "Little Wolf" loves the deepest part of winter.
He knows many things, especially ow to please the ladies.
He's made of of tough stuff!
Wrap him around your neck and you'll have a friend for life.

I am now officially taking commissions,
so if you want a Foxxy for your very own,
just let me know!
Happy Knitting~


  1. This is gorgeous Kacie! Love it! You should sell them on Etsy! :)

  2. He is so beautiful! Love those colors!


  3. I agree with Anna, make a business out of them.

  4. I would love to have one. How can I purchase Lowell the Fox?

  5. Julie- I made lowell for my Auntie, but I am taking orders, so if you want one just like him, I can make one!
    He is made from an Acrylic, Mohair, and wool blend, which means it would be a bit more expensive then say, Russel the fox, which is 100% Acrylic yarn.
    For a Foxxy just Like lowell the cost would be $100.
    For a Foxxy like Russel it would be $75.
