Irving and the Little Critters

(continued from here)

Soon, Irving came upon some other animals. They were welcoming and loving and made him feel right at home (even though he didn’t fit inside the home).


They had a lot of fun together. During the day, all of his new friends would climb up onto his high, strong back for a ride.


And at night, they would all snuggle up close to his soft, warm tummy.


But each day, he worried about dropping one of his new friends or – even worse – stepping on them, crushing them to death. And each night, he couldn’t sleep, for fear that he would roll over onto one of his new friends, again crushing them to death.

He was very unhappy.

Perhaps he needed to find an animal his own size…

  4. Karin,

    I am always amazed at your talent! I am also reminded of how I want to make one of your "Crocheted Starling Handbags". Each time I come on your blog, I see a photo of one. So, maybe...I should learn how, huh? Tell me that it's easy to learn.

  5. Yes, Jenny, you should definitely learn to crochet! For some people it's easy, for some it's a little trickier but definitely doable either way. And definitely worth it!

    And the Starling Handbag is great in that it's essentially only one kind of stitch...

  6. I really want to rub Irving's belly for him. Great choice of material.

  7. Thanks, Monica. Yeah, that stuff is SOOO soft!!
