What do you do when you’re sick and sad & lonely because there’s no one to take care of you or even talk to?
You become one of those weirdos who creates their own friends.
It hasn’t been a great week – mostly because I’ve been sick (not H1N1 or anything, but pretty miserable for most of the week). And I’ve fallen in love with the Danger Crafts creatures (so much I started my very first Ravelry group for them) So I spent most of the week in isolation (to keep whatever I had to myself) making several for gifts…and for myself.
First is Crowley. He’s my favourite.
His favourite book is Good Omens, which he is named after. I used some old Merino Style I had in the stash, so he’s soft & sweet.
This pattern is Frances The Charismatic Monster.
Then there’s Greeny Maddox
He’s slightly big & dopey but loves everyone around him. He also thinks the Toy Story movies are the greatest ever (Rex is his favourite). I used some beautiful Araucania Limari (alpaca, silk, merino – yum) I bought on clearance at Tuesday Morning & while I could have saved it for a scarf or something, I decided it should be a big green monster instead. He was going to be for one of my nephews but, while this is such soft yarn, it’s not great for a messy 4 year old. So now he’s my hugable monster
This pattern is Maddox The Mischievous Monster.
Finally these guys:
They are the intellectuals of the bunch & sit around discussing their relatives, the polar bears. I used some Comfy in the stash & are going to my youngest niece for Christmas.
Both are from the pattern Herman the Enigmatic Bear.
I should work on other Christmas presents but honestly I can’t stop making these guys. While I’m feeling a little better, my brain is still fuzzy so these lovely pattern fit the bill.
