More Minions

Minions 2
As I mentioned in my previous post, for me this month is all about minions. After I finished the two minion toys I wanted to make more, but also I wanted to create something new. 
I thought of our current obsessions with anything electronic and it just seemed appropriate to make a tablet cover inspired by minions.
The knitting pattern is almost done and should be available for everyone within the next few days.

And of course my next project is going to be the purple minion. I have already picked the yarn and I cannot wait to cast on.

Minions everywhere......

It seems to me that ever since the movie "Despicable Me 2" has been released I see minions everywhere. I have been asked to knit a blue version of minion, and I just wanted to make the yellow minion as well. Also I was asked to knit the purple minion which I cannot wait to create.
I have to admit, for me, the month of July is all about minions.
Here is the link to my pattern for minions so you can knit your own minion:

Donation to our library

This is my third year that I donated knitted toys to our library for summer reading raffle. Children read, and for ever fifteen minutes they read they earn one raffle ticket. There are various prices on display each week during the summer reading program. Children can place their raffle tickets to a box next to the price and the winners are announced each week.

I wonder, which avid reader will win these knitted toys.

Thank you for visiting.

Stana's critters etc.

Table display
A dear friend of mine asked me to participate in an event organized by Buddhist center in western Connecticut. The event was devoted to animals.

I had a table to display my knitted toys, and flyers for anyone interested to take home. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon in a serene location. It felt like a treat.
