I changed my blog url just slightly today — from morepleasethankyou.com/byazoo to just morepleasethankyou.com. I thiiiiiiink everything’s okay, but if you notice anything weird, could you let me know? Thanks! 🙂 🙂 🙂

In other news, I finished my moooonths-long project of knitting monsters for my nephew’s birthday present! They’re all from Rebecca Danger’s 50 Yards of Fun. Seriously, I am such a slow knitter — I bought this book in March, and it’s taken me this long to make five of them.

My favorite is the tiny peanut guy in the front — he’s such a cute shape! My kids liked them too, and I ended up making Cosmo a yak and Nikko a ninja in between the monsters, since they’d ask in sad little voices, “is this still for Georgie…?” hah!

I bought a Curious George lunchbox to send these in because my kids love packing toys into the one good metal lunchbox we have (it’s from when I was a kid, so it’s much sturdier than the newer ones we’ve gotten!) and taking it when we go out, like a little suitcase. I hope my nephew has fun with these!

  1. What a great present – five toys and a carrying case. I like the peanut guy too. And years ago (I have a son called George) some American friends brought a Curious George book as a present for us. At the time CG was not known over here, but I have noticed some classy bookshops stocking the books now. A great character that children can identify with.

  2. Love the little guys! They are so stinkin’ cute…how could your nephew not love them?

  3. OMG these are so cute! I purchased that book awhile back and loved it too! Everything is so cute, no!? So perfect for scrap yarn. What a lucky kid receiving all these monsters 🙂
