A little something

Quite literally, it's a 'little' something!  This little fellow (measuring about 6" tall) is something I knitted for our littlest 'grand' out of some scrap yarn I had left over from his Paw Patrol sweater.

The pattern is 'Little Kindness Monster' by Rachel Borello Carroll and can be found on Ravelry.  I altered it slightly and crocheted his arms and legs.

- HERE is a little tatting pattern that some of you might find interesting to try.

- There's a link to a cute wee Halloween cross stitch pattern HERE.

- Have a peek at the incredible embroideries by THIS artist (check out her people as well).

- For those of you who crochet, perhaps you'd like to try THIS pattern.

- Sometimes the simplest solutions for storage are the best as THIS will attest!

    Hi Mary Anne, thought I’d already commented here, but I’ve been having technical problems ..... and now I think this should work!
    I love this little monster, and I’ve been to visit the lady on Ravelry..... there are a few cuties there too!
    All the best,
    Barbara x

  13. You do keep busy! I do like the way the rulers are stored.


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
