Calling all crafty librarians! You know who you are. This one's for experienced knitters who want to make adorable winter wear for their little ones. We are in looove with MONSTER KNITS FOR LITTLE MONSTERS by Nuriya Khegay--just look at the precious little Yoda-like guy on the cover!
Unfortunately, Anne doesn't know how to knit, so she can't demonstrate this one for you. (She's more of a counted cross-stitch kind of gal.) But if you do, you'll find a treasure trove of goodies here: an adorable monster hat, gloves, and socks with little claws!
Click here to download a PDF of the "little monster" hat, mitten & bootie project.
If someone knits these for us in a grown-up size we'll be your best friends forever. Remember, Anne can trade for cookies.
Happy crafting and don't forget that from now through December 15 you can enter to win MONSTER KNITS and a bundle of other cooking and crafting books! Read on for more info.
