Gina McCauley knits a future Snooter-Doot at the 44th annual University District Street Fair Sunday, May 19, 2013. The Snooter-Doots are whimsical soft-sculpted creations made out of felted wool, and they each have a story. "They aren't for sale, they're for adoption," said McCauley. The Snooter-Doots stemmed from a story her then five-year-old daughter told her 30 years ago, that she expanded upon. "I didn't know what they looked like then, but thirty years later, here they are," she said. More information at snooter-doots.com.
