"Help me, Jacqui, I want to be a Moooooose"
"It's a Raindeer costume, Rye."
"No it's not a Raindeator, it's a Moooooose".
That told me.
Rye playing with impulse purchases from Danirose on Etsy
I had only meant to buy the tealight holder (not photographed), thought it would be a nice Autumn meal blessing candle holder...but then I saw these; and I had to have the trolls, and the pear gnome.. I confess I had to buy it because I giggle everytime I look at him; that pear on his head... ;-) the squirrel was just too cute and would make a great addition to the season table - except Rye loves playing with him... and the snow flake gnome for the winter table.. again much played with by Rye.
"I want to crochet, mum"
So I showed him, he's getting the basic idea, but is finding the wrapping yarn round hook, then having to hold the crochet and yarn so he can pull the yarn through the hoop on the hook, a bit fiddly - but he managed it a few times; and was very proud of himself and frustrated when he couldn't do it - in equal measures :-) Bless him.
A winter hat I knocked up today for him. I had to rip back the ribbing a few times, kept making it too snug.
I'm considering putting a couple of crochet corkscrews on the points, maybe even bells :-)
