Hazel’s Unicorn

Our little Hazel loves Unicorns. No, no…I mean she REEEEALY loves unicorns. She wants to go to Scotland someday NOT because that’s where our family comes from–but because apparently, their national animal is a Unicorn. She’s convinced that in some mystical, magical forest over there–she will certainly find one…

and bring it home.

For real.

So when her birthday came around, there really was no other choice but to make her this pretty little baby…golden horn and all.

I mean, seriously–aren’t those curls just the sweetest thing you’ve ever seen?!

And oh, my goodness the tiny WINGS!! They made me giggle the whole time it was coming together.

Happy Birthday sweet Hazel. I hope you find your real live Unicorn someday.

In the meantime, here’s this one.

Grammy loves you,



PS- The original pattern for this little cutie can be found at AgamigurumiShop on Etsy.

Pocket Parakeet

Magoo came to me the other day with two little balls of yarn–one green and one pink. He said, “Grammy, what can we make with these?”

Knowing that this fellow loves birds–parakeets in particular, I said, “It looks like just the right amount to make a little bird. He liked the idea.

I wanted to give the little guy green wings but oooooh, I ran out of green yarn and only had enough to edge them. Also, the pattern I found didn’t have a tail–whaaaat?! So I had to make one up.

It’s a tiny little thing. Just right for a bird loving boy’s pocket.

Love you, Magoo.

Slipper Socks

My answer to chronically cold feet. I didn’t really have one pattern. It’s a mixture of two or three. It’s big enough to put on easily, which is important because my foot is fused and doesn’t bend at the ankle much or the big toe at all. It’s also snug enough to stay on but not so tight that it makes my scar nerves go crazy.

Sounds complicated, I know.

But seriously–it’s a win.
