FO Friday: Toys, Toys, Toys!

Well, some of you might have already caught this post which accidentally went live LAST weekend. Oops! Thanks, Blogger publisher, for not accepting the publish date I entered the first time...ok, fine, that might have been operator error on my part! At any rate, I apoligize if this gives you deja vu, and for those of you who are just now seeing this post for the first time: just pretend you didn't read this first paragraph!

Ahem.

I've been making some random toys lately and haven't gotten around to sharing them on the blog, so today's post is a hodgepodge of some toys that you might have already seen if you follow me on Instagram. After making my contributions to the #ProjectGnomeDiplomacy, I decided to keep with the tiny theme and made a wee little sheep with a tiny alpaca for a buddy:


Keeping in the theme, I also crocheted this tiny snowman, which was a past FreshStitches kit club shipment that has been sitting in my WIP basket for several months.


After so much tiny, it was time to make something big. Like, REALLY big. This gorgeous gradient handspun yarn was calling to me, and since I'm in the midst of an all-gray WIP situation, I found myself craving a splash of color. I found the biggest hook I had lying around (size L, I believe) and made a Crocheted Button Bunny, which is a free pattern of mine which appeared on the Knitter's Pride Blog.


OMG, this guy is so squishy and fun! Here he is with my other recent toy projects for scale:


Kind of an unlikely crew, but somehow they all get along!

Have a fun & crafty weekend!
