April Fool's Prank?

No, not a joke.  I really am going to knit a couple of the projects from "Knit Your Own Royal Wedding".

My plan is to make Queen Elizabeth II and a corgi.  I'm sure that I've got all the yarn I need in my stash. 

Queen Elizabeth II - real and knitted!
Corgi - real and knitted
This will be very early Christmas knitting.  I don't usually like doing anything for Christmas until it's close to the holiday season, but I'm going to make an exception this time. 

My Mom has a little Christmas tree that she calls her "Funny Tree".  On it she puts all kinds of unique ornaments, everything from a funny little plastic Snoopy with his tongue stuck out to a beautiful silver angel that she got in Mexico.  Each year I try to come up with something new and whimsical, but it gets harder and harder to find something that's special.  I can take my time with this project, starting with raiding the stash!
