Minions everywhere.....

Field trip
I was asked to knit some minions. It was a nice distraction from all of the other knitting that I have been working on in the past few weeks.

I just couldn't help it, I had to assemble the entire group together for a nice picture. It reminds me of a class on a field trip.

The patterns for both version of minions are available on my blog for free:
Minions part 1
Minions part 2
Minions evil version

Of course, now I am thinking about other minion inspired things that I have knitted and wrote the patterns:
Tablet cover
Tablet cover evil version
Phone Cover
Hat (both versions)

What else will I knit? I have few ideas......

Thank you for visiting.

Reading and knitting.....

Reading and knitting are two of my favorite things to do. If I could I would rather be knitting instead of house chores, but that is living in a dreamland rather than reality.

Anyway, I love our local library. We are very frequent visitors and know the librarians by their name. During the summer the children section of the library offers summer reading program. Children are encouraged to read and for every book they read or every hour they read they receive a raffle ticket. Local families and businesses donate prizes and children can place their raffle tickets to containers next to the prices on display. Each week the winners are randomly picked and the recipients receive their price.

Every year I donate some of my knitted toys. This year I gave two Miranda's the owl in pink and blue as well as Owlie tablet and phone cover. The other day we visited the library and the container next to my Miranda was filled with raffle tickets. It is a great feeling to see how many avid readers are in the library, and even more how many of the readers want to own my knitted Miranda.

Thank you for visiting.
