Mr. Abominable


My sister, Susan, pointed out the pattern for Mr. Abominable to me, feeding my etsy pattern fetish. She found him at caffaknitted's etsy shop and as soon as I saw him I knew he was going to be mine. I haven't been knitting lately and my fingers have been itching to play with some yarn and sticks. Mr. Grouchy-Man-Snowman is the perfect guy to get me stitching this summer. I stopped at Custom Threads in downtown Astoria this afternoon, picked up some white Cascade 220 and some peach colored Plymouth. Now just waiting for that beautiful white mohair that's hand dyed and spun and coming from this etsy shop. Hurry you beautiful yarn, hurry. I can hardly wait....

Okay... that is the cutest thing I've seen in a long time! Hurry up, yarn... and hurry up Paula! I can't wait to see him when you're finished!

By the way- AWESOME music list! I haven't heard Leroy Brown in ages... what a blast from the past!

I love "Mr. Abominable" -he is so darned cute. Sounds like fun to make too although I've never tried making stuff like this. Maybe one of these days, ya know.

What a cute little guy! You could do a lot of fun things with him. Can't wait to see what you do when your yarn arrives. ~Adrienne~

Oh, I love him. I would be wanting to make one too if he was crocheted. I don't knit. Have fun stitching.

That is adorable!
Shame I don't like to knit.
And somehow I just don't think it would look right crocheted.
