How can a little square be so cute?
Perhaps you have a granddaughter or daughter or niece like my granddaughter. She likes those little plastic critters that, to my eye, don’t look like anything real. Big eyes, some have bobble heads, and various appendages that I think makes them look like monsters, each and every one, but A. will come to me and say, “I can’t find Bubbly” (or whatever). I ask her, who’s Bubbly? and she’ll say, “he’s a dog.”
We go to her room and there on the floor is a mass of plastic blobs, dozens and dozens. Poking through them, I cannot find anything resembling a dog. A. is looking under her bed; “there he is!” and pulls out a purple and white…blob…with big eyes and something that must be ears, I guess.
I have yet to knit in plastic, but there has to be something out there in the knitting world that will appeal to her sense of cute – small, compact, and amorphous (leaves much to the imagination.)…
I found them. Cubic Cats. Think of how much fun it would be to have a whole herd of cats – you could stack them, line them up nose to tail. You can make them any color, striped, spotted, and so on and on.
