All Knitted Creatures Great and Small!

The latest craze at The Needle Lady is knitting a variety of creatures. It began with Hansi Singh's new book Amigurumi Knits! These weren't ordinary knits, these were jellyfish, snails, hermit crabs--even a praying mantis.... Mary Reid took these creatures on as a challenge and created the most wonderful menagerie. Thank you Mary for the pictures---here they are.

The book sold out quickly, but we should have more in this week.


Angela created a little family of Bunny Nuggets for Easter. These guys are Rebecca Danger's creations and she has the free pattern available for download on her site http://www.rebeccadanger.typepad.com/dangercraftsbunnynuggetknittingpattern.pdf.

It's hard not to smile when you see these guys. What a great use of leftover yarn!
