Meet Curly.  He is our newest friend from Itty Bitty Toys.

He is incredibly cute!  Snakes are one critter that I have a high aversion to.  Most of the time I try to be pretty macho about things, but not so with snakes.  I think it all started when my 5th grade teacher had us watch as he fed the class snake a mouse.  I just can’t stop seeing that big eared darling of a mouse wander the cage innocently.  I’m sure you know the ending of that story.  I almost tear up just thinking about it.  But Curly doesn’t eat mice.  In fact, he eats mosquitoes.  He is pure sweetness through and through.

He comes from Itty Bitty Toys by Susan B. Anderson.  (I know.  Another project from that book.  Trust me, you haven’t seen the end of it either.  My needles are flying!)

While Elias and I were knitting him last night, I started thinking that I might try and only give Elias homemade gifts.  I think that would be very cool.  And it would teach him something about the meaning of gifts.
