Cyril the Fox and Donna Wilson


How adorable is this knitted Cyril the Fox?
And how adorable is it to name a fox Cyril?

Created by the quirky Donna Wilson below who I just found out was chosen as British designer of the Year by Elle Decoration. wow. Her work is characterized by a playful nature, tactile aesthetic and multicoloured palette. It's imaginative, quirky, and cool.

What great style. Look at those teal tights and two-tone oxfords!

This is her booth at the Maison et Objet show in Paris.

Donna started out knitting curious creatures but has since expanded into ceramics, pillow and fabrics. (which is what I'd love to do in 2011!)
Very inspirational.
