monster love

I’d seen dangercrafts‘ patterns before, and quite liked them, but never gave them too much thought. Then, recently, mooncalfmakes and agirlinwinter went crazy for them and started knitting adorable monstersies. It made me take a closer look at the patterns. And then I fell in love.

With Penelope the Emphatetic Monster.

And Daphne and Delilah the Momma and Baby Monster.

I can just see these in so many awesome and cheerful colour combinations, and I can’t imagine better patterns for stashbusting (which, as you’ve seen, I’ll have to be doing a lot)! I can already see my niece and nephew hugging and squeezing these, and giving them kisses before bedtime… :)

And then I saw Tofu the Gentle Dachshund, Greta the Captivating Cat and Zeke the Aloof Alpaca.

And these, I can imagine hugging and squeezing myself! ;)

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.

  1. I know what you mean, I often look at the dangercraft patterns- the toys are all so cute!! I’m thinking one of these days I’m going to get the five pattern bundle… but which ones to choose?! I love Tofu the gentle dachshund, for sure. And I love the monster that wears socks!
