I whipped up this little retirement gift for my coworker Ilona last July. She was the sweetest and kindest lady ever!




A little love in the air

For 5 minutes a day, they sit and stare
Looking at each other, blinking they do not dare.
Sometimes they don’t get privacy and that’s okay
As long as they don’t forget to do this everyday!

Hiccup the Non-Magical Dragon March 4, 2013

Hiccup the Non-Magical Dragon does not live by the sea
But he is very special and has a unique talent that no other non-magical dragons have

Hiccup discovered this talent by accident at a young age after eating a bowl of cereal with milk
After feeling super full, Hiccup started to hiccup and a little bubble came out of his little mouth

You see, Hiccup’s biggest dream was to be a super scary non-magical dragon and bring terror to all the other animals *RAWRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR*

But sadly, the dream was crush after that bowl of delicious cereal with milk
Since then, Hiccup discovered that if he started eating cereal with a little bit of soap, his bubbles would get bigger and bigger

One time, the bubble got so big it engulfed him and Hiccup ended up living in his own bubble for days! (This was an AH-HA moment for him)
The truth is, Hiccup still scares all the other animals!  He traps them in his gigantic bubbles!!! MUAHAHAHahahahahhahaha

Here comes Plucky! February 4, 2013

Plucky the Turkey comes out to play
Just in time for Valentine’s Day!

He went on vacation around September
And didn’t come back till late late December

He was hiding from Humans during this time
Avoiding all grocery stores with people shouting, “Mine!”

Plucky might be delicious but no one will ever know
When it’s near that time on the calender he will just pack and go!



Pattern for Turkey: From the shoulders down the pattern is exactly like the Penguin in Jean Greenhowe’s design. From the neck up, I was knitting and just going with the flow. Unfortunately I didn’t record my work and I probably won’t be able to recreate the exact same head the next time I do it :(. *sigh*
