To distract you from the sheer lack of ambition on my part, I have to show you an amazing project brought to you by The Genius.
Yes, my college kid knit Mike Wazowski. For the few of you that don’t know about Mike, he’s a character from the Pixar movie, Monsters, Inc.
I was blown away by her execution of Mike. She was working on him last fall. Lots of ideas went back and forth between us over the phone or via email. I found a pattern for an eyeball because it was Halloween. She wasn’t sure how to do his hands and feet, and then remembered a scene in the movie where Mike was in the Himalayas and was so cold, he had mittens on his hands, feet, and horns. That took care of that problem. I sent her a bunch of sock yarn, and she knit six mismatched mittens.
Here’s a bigger shot.
He even has teeth and a tongue. The whole family wanted to claim Mike, even the dog.
And my lack of ambition…lets just say that I hate cleaning. So, to avoid it, I’ve read all your blogs!!! That means that beause of my avoidance tactics, there’s not a lot of knitting and quilting going on. But I have a plan. I’m going to run around like crazy today and get boxes ready to mail, empty the laundry room (at least it’s all clean and folded!) and do other necessary things. Oh, and I have to make cookies today. It was Dreamboy’s birthday yesterday, and he decided after the fact that he wants to bring chocolate chip cookies to school tomorrow. I can facilitate that!
I’ll be back soon with some quilting and my knitting plan for May. Oh, and I got a birthday gift from a blog reader. I’ll have to show you what I got!
Next post, you’ll see everything I accomplished, but first I have to get off the couch. Ready! Set! Go!
