  1. Thanks for this info Jane - it might be the answer to the nutcracker beard that I've been contemplating for a year!

    1. Good luck, Peggi! Have you seen Diane Bosworth's Beards I Have Known? Great little book. She uses a lot of knitting yarns for her inventive beards. Just take a look at all the Petei Santa beards she's stitched for the French Knot over the years! Her booklet is available through the shop as she works there part time. http://www.thefrenchknot.com/x-petei.htm
