Hercule was designed and knitted* by the talented grandson of my friend S from the Wicklow Knitters. She is naturally very proud of Hercule (and of her grandson) so she brought Hercule to meet the Wicklow Knitters at our most recent meeting.
For a while we thought he (Hercule, not her grandson) had a Ronald Coleman moustache, but we quickly decided that it was Hercule Poirot himself who has been reincarnated...or should that be reincar-knitted?
Isn't he handsome? I especially like the ears in different colours. And the green shoes.
Note the jaunty scarf and the delightful tail.
