A place for me to ramble about my art and crafting exploits.

The First Mini Alien

Disclaimer: This post is a repost from my old blog, which was more personal and less crafty. I don’t use that blog anymore, but thought I’d share some of the craft-related posts from there. This one was from July 2010.


I wanted to do a mystery knit, but when I did a search everything was Mystery Shawl or Mystery Scarf. That wasn’t enough mystery for me. I didn’t want to have a clue what I was making. So I got my friend Cayden to find and feed me a proper mystery knit. I ended up with this cute little guy…

The pen is to show how small he is. It was only 16 rows. I had Cayden feed it to me in a few rows a day, so it took a few days, but you could easily make dozens in an evening. The original pattern can be found here.

So what do you think? Isn’t he just the cutest little beastie ever?

Since then I’ve made a total of 270 of these guys.  So far.
