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

Oh my goodness, these little friends are so great!  I think Maxine and her teeny tiny pussyhat might be my favorite though.  Well done.

They are all so adorable, and the message is perfect for them! I know they will make someone's entire week when they are found.

Love these little guys so much - they are adorable. From the thumbnail picture, I thought they were The Flumps (https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3732/9732066073_7b0e6ec309.jpg) but they are so much cuter!

I set free two of the wee monsters today!! 

https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=453010.msg5460523#msg5460523

One, I know for sure, was picked up, and the other was still waiting for its forever home when I walked by a second time.

Whoops - posted to the wrong post... I meant to say that I wish I was able to find these myself.  I am loving seeing where they have been abandoned in the abandonment swap gallery.
