Yarn Eating Monsters, Big Balls and 'Ninja Gloves'
Here is my Yarn Eating Monster
Each new stripe is greeted by an appreciative 'Woaaahhh!' from my seven year old. You would think crochet were alchemy with how amazed he is that Mom can make things. (Unless he knows how to make me happy!) He loves getting his sticky mitts on my stash and shows an interest in whatever my current project is.
He just helped me hide put these away, he was passing his opinion on each colour and thought they were all nice, his favourite was the 'Pinky Purple'. I have three 'big' projects planned using 'Black' DK so I searched Ebay for a bargain. 500g Balls. I love them and they get the seven year old excited. They are big balls!
The weather has really turned here and got very chilly. When I went to open the coop today the grass almost crunched underfoot. We have lots of single gloves around the house and not many pairs. So I used this pattern Ninja Gloves as a basis to make these last night:
The idea is if you call them 'Ninja Gloves' then they become very coooolll indeed. They certainly have enhanced his 'Ninja Skills'. He will be 'Airbending' before I know it! Euan loves them and said his mates at school think they are cool. They should be quick enough to rustle up replacements too. Hey, and I think I will have enough black DK for a while.
