I’ve been working on a number of toys lately. It seems to be a summer thing with me. Maybe ‘cute’ and ‘higher temps’ go together in my mind. I think I’ve knit 6 Monster Chunks this summer. They’re a great free pattern from Rebecca Danger.
The reindeer is part of the incredibly cute (and quite clever) Snowball Buddies set designed by Susan Claudino.
This fall I’m teaching a class called “Techniques Through Toys” at my local yarn store Knit 2 Scrap 2. I’ve been taking really careful notes because the class is for people looking to go beyond beginner level, and there are a lot of things to learn from these tennis-ball-sized cuties. I just have to remember to think like a beginner as much as possible.
