Ready to ship. Cute box style may vary, depending on what I have in stock. I can also ship for you, directly to a pal, as a gift! with a nice handwritten card! Just let me know when you check out.
Wonderful gift for a geeky knitter; or make one for yourself or for a special child, Easter basket, Valentine's Day gift, birthday present, stocking stuffer, trick or treat pal, and so forth!
These guys' cousin zombies are featured in the August 1, 2015 edition of STUFFED magazine! They will be here all week signing autographs... lets try not to let it get to their heads, though.
...and please note: if you are the knitting perfectionist, one who creates beautiful lace with precision and grace - this pattern may NOT be for you.... read on...
Enjoy the freedom of tying knots, NOT weaving in ends, making one arm longer than the other, making seams unseemly, etc! Make mistakes and DON'T rip them out! (YIKES!!) *** Say it with me – this is a monster!!*** Show your knots, and be proud of your new friend! Have fun with the colors! Make them coordinate – or not – as much as you'd like.
This listing is for the DIY knitting kit/pattern ONLY so YOU can make your OWN skeleton creation! Its okay with me if you sell the completed dude, but please credit me as the designer and give a link to my shop. Share the love! And its never okay to just give this pattern to someone, or to photocopy it... tsk tsk... have them support a stay-home mom and tell them where they can buy their copy...But you already knew that, so thanks!
