Okay, mostly done. He needs his prickles and a flower pot, but the tricky part is done. I stuffed and sewed last night, which is never my favorite part of making tiny cute things. I’m not convinced I stuffed the main cactus body firmly enough but whatever. He’s fine. He even got two cute little flowers.
Yesterday was also a really good mail day! I had some credit in my Loopy Ewe reward account that was due to expire, plus I had enough points to get 25% off one skein of yarn. I chose a colorful skein of sock yarn from Western Sky Knits because I feel like I’m running low on fun sock yarn, mostly because every time I get some, I knit it. It’s a good habit to have, I think. Anyway, it arrived yesterday and it’s so pretty!
But wait, there’s more! I have no idea how this happened but I also got some “Loopy Groupies” goodies! I got the cutest little printed canvas bag and FREE YARN!
I was an unofficial Loopy groupie before; it’s nice to make it official! Brown and green aren’t really my colors but I’m not about to turn down free sock yarn. These will become gift socks for someone, I just have to figure out who!
The cactus is cute! I love the Western Sky Knits yarn, it will make stunning socks. How cool to get groupie swag!
Free yarn is the best yarn!!
Why is there a photo of a ripped-looking cactus over there? –> Is it okay?
Nooo!! I was out last night and the boys didn’t lock up the dogs and Duncan got the cactus. 😭
Oh no! Is it fixable??
Yes I think just the one small piece needs to be replaced, thank goodness!
Oh good, that’s a relief.
Cute cactus! (Though I saw a new blog post title that doesn’t bode well for the little cactus…)
And that’s great sock yarn — both the skein you bought and the special gift one! 😀
Thanks–I’m thinking one of them might become fingerless mitts!!
Oooh, shiny! I love making fingerless mitts, though I don’t wear them as often as I should for how much I like making them. 😉
Both yarns are lovely and you can never have too many bags!
Cute cactus – the type of plant you can never kill by over or under watering and you never need a neighbour to pop in during the holidays and look after it !
