Monsters have invaded my house!!! They've taken over my life!!! I can't escape them!!! They're EVERYwhere!!! They're. . . in the dog food!!!
They're. . . in the laundry!!!
They're. . .watching my tv!!!
Even my children are in danger!!! They're. . . reading Erin's books!!!
And. . .hiding in Brian's hockey bag!!!
They are knit from Heather Sebastian's Minions pattern (Ravelry link here), using a variety of sock yarn scraps I had on hand. I intended to make one for Erin. . .
and it was so dang cute that I decided to make some more!
Then Brian wanted one. And I decided . . . why stop there? I'll make one for his girlfriend, too!
(The one with the scarf is not in the pattern -- I did the scarf, "mittens" and "boots" on my own.)
I had WAY too much fun with these little guys! It's a great way to use leftover sock yarn and mismatched buttons -- and a fun way to start the new year, most definitely.
