A Reindeer Yarn

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen,
Comet and Cupid and Donder and Blitzen.
But do you recall,
The most famous reindeer of all?

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Had a very shiny nose,
And if you ever saw it,
You would even say it glows.
—from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, 1949
by Johnny Marks (1909–1985)

A seasonal display at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio.

The designers at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio continue to delight with their clever and amusing window displays. This one fits in with the Christmas season, with nods to winter and Hanukkah.

I do not know if these creations are knitted or crocheted. That answer is tangled in the threads for me. What I do know is that it is impressive to see the work, imagination and design sense that go into these window displays.

The positioning of the figures gives the display a bit of life.

I posted about another Lion Brand Yard Studio window display from earlier this year. Take a look! In the months ahead, others will be offered for your amusement.

“No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.” —Voltaire (1694–1778)

All of the other reindeer,
Use to laugh and call him names.
They never let poor Rudolph,
Join in any reindeer games.

The Star of David could also be a snowflake!

Then one foggy Christmas Eve,
Santa came to say.
“Rudolph with your nose so bright,
Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?”

Rudolph the Red-Sweatered Reindeer!

Then how the reindeer loved him,
As they shouted out with glee.
Rudolph the red nosed reindeer,
You’ll go down in history.

A good view of the cable stitching of the white reindeer.

“Nature is full of genius, full of the divinity; so that not a snowflake escapes its fashioning hand.”
—Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
