Karen our Store Manager brought in the first critter I highlight below this morning. As we were pulling up the pattern I came across our second furry friend and then our third feature is very special and someone I’ve been remiss in sharing with you! So let’s have some fun on this Friday, shall we?
First up is Harry Rabbit:
Harry is created from a new line of patterns/kits from Frog Tree Alpacas. For $8.00 you get the pattern you get all the parts and pieces you need to create your critter. Harry comes with his eyes, pink felt and wire which allow his arms and legs to be poseable. The yarn needs to be purchased separately. Harry is knit with Frog Tree Sport Weight Alpaca – he takes 3 colors. Frog Tree Sport Weight has 130 yards for $6.80 per skein. For Harry’s main color approximately 80 yards are used so if you purchased 2 skeins of color A and 1 each of color B and C for a total of 4 skeins ($27.20) you would be able to create THREE Harrys! There are seven patterns in all and each one is adorable!
Next up is a super cuddly puppy:
He’s made from Plymouth Pattern 1782 and is knit using one of Plymouth’s newer yarns, Nazca Wind. He only takes one hank, his eyes and nose are needle felted and his collar is created from scrap yarn.
Nazca Wind is $14.95 per skein and at 3 1/2 sts = 1″ this pup will knit up in no time!
Last, but far from least is our very own Green Monster:
I’m sure by now most of you have met Iris the Gourmet Monster from Lorna’s Laces & Danger Crafts:
When we met Iris at TNNA back in January we were smitten. Steve came up idea to create one in a custom “green” colorway. Beth was game and our Green Monster was born!
Of course red socks were a requirement! Iris the Green Monster is a WEBS Exclusive. The kit comes with the pattern and the yarn for Iris. The pattern for the red socks is available free on our website. The kit itself is $30.00.
Regular Iris the Gourmet Monster Kits are available in three different Lorna’s Laces yarns – Shepherd Bulky ($50.00) , Greenline DK ($30.00) and Revelation ($50.00).
