21  Wee Kindness Monsters! in Knitting: Completed Projects by loves2experiment on: September 08, 2017 02:10:29 AM

Be silly!  Be honest!  Be kind!
This mantra was in my mind as I knitted a batch of kindness monsters for the art abandonment swap.  
I wanted to spread positivity in my art abandonment pieces, and I hope this does the trick!
Here's a link to the pattern I used for the monsters: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/a-little-kindness-monster
The original instructions call for worsted yarn, but I figured itty bitty was the way to go Wink
Each monster has its own fun personality, and it was a hoot to see them develop.

Amlie - She loves creating banners and all things crafty...and yes!  Buttons!!!

Casper - Candy corn beanie dude who tries to look cool while secretly coveting all things Halloween and of course, candy!!!

Peyton - Kite flying enthusiast who has a passion for blue skies and spreading positive vibes.

Joss - Who doesn't love micro glitter and sparkle?  It's the gift that keeps giving... Tongue

Maxine - She's a bit of a feminist who has no compunction when it comes to speaking her mind Wink

Chase - Adventurous parachute adrenaline junkie who is happiest when he's in flight.

And if you've made it this far, here's a picture of another wip wee monster to give you an idea of size Smiley

The tiny monsters were so much fun to create! Cheesy
If anyone is interested, here's the link to the pattern I used: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/a-little-kindness-monster
My batch of monsters were smaller in size because I adore tiny things!
Here's a picture to give you an idea of size:

utm, the coral necklaces turned out great...and I love how you packaged them!  Whoever finds one will be stoked!  And I'm glad you'll be offering a few in the sts swap Grin 

Plus all the spools unravel with messages inside - they were inspired by this project: http://ephemeralalchemy.blogspot.com/2010/02/thread-spool-poetry.html?m=1

calluna, the spool ornaments are fantastic!  Do you have any pictures of them showing the messages inside?  I would love to see more! Smiley

Huzzah!!  It looks like I'm the first to receive Cheesy
sheepBlue sent me a fantastic bunch of whimsical taxidermy to drop off in the PNW. 
Each one is so unique and has numerous tiny details (see for yourself!)...I think they are all awesome and I can't pick a favourite!!

Since I am still trying to finish up my swap package for sheepBlue, I will hold off on abandoning these lovelies until I've sent out my swap package Smiley  Ha!  It's really a ploy to buy some extra time before I have to let them go off to their new homes Wink  Yes!  I'll get to admire them for a bit more.  Of course, I will post more pictures when I abandon them.  I know these will be well-received and bring joy to whoever finds them.  If you would like to read more about the whimsical pieces. sheepBlue has posted more pictures here!

sheepBlue, thanks for being my partner in (and for organizing) this swap Smiley  I am now, more than ever motivated to finish my crafting so that I can start the abandoning process for your artwork!

Finally updated my shop with a couple of things.  A few more items are waiting to be finished (hopefully for this round, if not, then the next?).
I spotted this fabric and thought it was a hoot! Had to make something with it Cheesy
