Here are some creatures that could use a little comfort, and maybe a cuddle. I love knitting...especially when I can create something beyond a scarf! I was inspired to make my "Cuddle Creatures" by my friend Pam, who designs and knits her own line of the most adorable "monsters" ever!
But I didn't want her exact specs, so that I could springboard into my own creations. Therefore, I had no idea how these would turn out! The first one, a little blue guy, was smaller, but my husband loves him, and even let him ride on a trip to North Carolina! Meanwhile, I was busy clicking my needles with a new idea--I would make a creature for everyone in the family for Christmas!
My littlest nephew walked in one day when I was working on a purple girl (she is made of lavendar-scented Sugar and Cream yarn)--he asked a million questions about what I was knitting, why was I knitting it, and what is knitting anyway? So cute. Then he asked if I would knit him a creature. He said he wanted something white with blue hair, and then this adorable six-year-old sat down and drew the face he wanted me to ultimately embroider onto his Cuddle Creature. It was an angry face, so I had to laugh--but I had my orders.
