Come and meet Irving (the Icebox Monster) and all of his friends in The Big Book of Knitted Monsters. Irving just took a couple of hours to knit - quick and easy. These stuffed toys would make just wonderful childrens' gifts for that hard-to-by-for child.

One of Irving's buddies, Baldwin the Bathroom Monster, was shown to the PJ Party group last October. Baldwin and his brother were knitted by Jane J. for her two sons - who just thought they were the greatest stuffed toys.

Here's a family portrait.

Irving was just plain fun to knit and put together. If Irving doesn't quite strike you as a proper monster you can page through the book and find the monster just right for you.

Irving sits on our counter waiting to be picked up. Don't be afraid to give him a quick squeeze - he doesn't bite.

Irving was knitted out of Berroco Vintage but any washable 5 st/inch yarn will do - even superwash wool.

A fun new product has arrived. We carry Lavishea Lotion Bars. They are made with all natural ingredients. It looks like a little bar of soap. You simply rub the bar on your skin and your body heat will melt the lotion onto your skin to be quickly absorbed. There is no greasy residue.

The fragrance is from premium botanicals, essential oils, and skin-safe fragrances. The base is fair trade shea butter and natural soy. All of the Lavishea bars are gluten free.

This bar travels well and passes through security at the airport in your carry-on luggage. No hassle with 3.5 ounces of liquid fitting into a ziplock bag. And, no messy spills!
