I recently took a couple pieces of clothing over to my friend, Nicole the Knitter. She needed me to hem some pants and mend a shirt. When I bagged them up to return them to her, I tucked a couple little guys into the bag for her to find.



About two years ago, Nicole got me the Creepy Cute Crochet book for my birthday. She said it was for selfish reasons because she wanted the minions in the book for herself. Smiley

I made the devil a little taller than he should be, and decided I liked these guys short, like Nosteratu (which, by the way, I just got around to seeing that movie on Netflix because of this little project). They were made with just a little bit of leftover scrap yarn, which is why Nosterfatu's collar is red instead of black...I ran out. But damn it all, his little ears...do you know what they reminded me of? Christopher Eccleston's (Doctor #9) ears. Hmmmm, i might be able to turn Nosferatu into a tiny Nine. BTW, the googly eyes came from IHeartsTheArts, my partner in the Jim Henson swap on Craftster.  Grin

I swear to God, I didn't stuff these guys with catnip. I buy the good 'nip from PetsMart and while I do like to get Dixie and Odin both high, I meant these minions for Nicole, so they care catnip free.

That being said, Odin kidnapped the minions for himself.
