Monster Madness!


A monster family for my nephew's 2nd birthday. He's expecting a little sister in a few months - hence the teeny monster!

M O N S T A S !

"Monster Chunks"

Gifted these to my 3 monstas for Summer Solstice - they are having fun naming them and assigning super powers to each. Plans are in the works for building homes and making a "playing card" for each of them as well. Yeah for simple summer fun!

This could be my summer of Stuffed Toys.

Baby Bobbi Bear
Yarn: Berocco Vintage
Size 5 needles

Too much cuteness - but alas, he'll be off to San Francisco soon to make a home with a good friend's new baby girl.
Need to cast on another soon to lessen the sting of his departure!

Welcome Summer Vacation!

This little guy accompanied me to pick up Oldest Son and Daughter from their last day of school!
Then went to the school principal as a thank you for the year!

Pink Scarf

Dropped it off at my LYS yesterday to be donated to a local hospital for their "Project Pink Scarf"
for breast cancer patients.

~For my Anta, who has been gone 11 years yet remains such a memorable presence in my heart.
~For my knitting friend who beat it and is going strong.
~For my mother and sisters and dear friends who I pray will never have to deal with it.

Almost There

I ran up the stairs ~
Just a slight smidgen of pain ~
Dancing legs return ~

(These have nothing to do with dancing or pulling of hamstrings but are cute and fast and a great way to use up cotton stash yarn for useful re-usable pot or face scrubbers - also great indoor mini frisbes - WHEEEE! TRIBBLES!)
