Meet Nelson, the fox I knitted from an Intrepid Fox kit from Ella Austin (the designer) and Skein Queen (the yarn dyer). The kit is available from Ella's Etsy store:

I took a very long time to make this, as I had several other projects on my needles, and I am not really a fan of knitting Fair Isle on such a small scale.

He is named after Nelson, the fox in the adult puppet series broadcast on BBC in 2010/11. We have an urban fox in our garden that we call Vince, Nelson's rather more gritty brother in the series, but I do not feel Vince would wear a Fair Isle vest.
