Happy Holidays

... to all.
Peace on Earth

I wish everyone a wonderful time with their loved ones, cherishing the precious moments together, enjoying each other's company.

Thank you for visiting my little corner where I share my passion for anything knitted, especially toys, and sometimes my random thoughts and ideas.

Thank you for visiting my blog Stana's critters etc where I offer my knitting patterns. Some free and some for a little sum of money, which is used to buy more yarn and therefore creating more of what I love, which allows me to share more with you, my readers, and give away the knitted toys to those who need a little comfort in the darkness.

Thank you for letting me share my passion with you, my readers.

All the best for the New Year.

Fifi, the Fluffy Dog

Fifi, the Fluffy Dog
This time of year is busy for everyone. It seems that there is not enough hours in a day to finish all that needs to be done. I always start with a plan and a list, hoping that this time I will have finish everything ahead of schedule. Somehow my intentions and plans fell short again and I am desperately trying to finish all the handmade gifts that I would like to give. Yet, I am afraid that one of my gifts will be wrapped with knitting needles still attached to it.

On a bright note, I have finally written up the pattern for Fifi, the fluffy dog. At the moment it is test knitted and the pattern will be available in a few weeks. While I was writing the pattern I knitted a pink version of Fifi, the fluffy dog. It took me three days to knit Fifi thanks to the unexpected snow day we had earlier this week.

Sometimes being inside is a great way to spend the snow days, stay on a sofa cuddled up in a blanket, watch the fire in a fireplace, sip a hot tea or cocoa, and knit. And then, the snow stops falling and we have to go out and shovel the snow, but that is another story.

Thank you for visiting.

Knitting Pattern for Monster Al and his Friends

Monster Al and his Friends
Monster Al is my favorite monster. It might be because it was my first knitted monster, but also because I used him as a character for my picture book Monster Al , and now he and his friends are characters in my Thesis project Monster Al and his Friends.

In the knitting pattern for Monster Al and his friends I have included the story. You can purchase the pattern on Ravelry or by clicking on this button.
