monster chunk knitting toys

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.
