Wild Thing

Where The Wild Things Are

While searching Ravelry for the perfect project to donate to the Positive Tomorrows annual toy drive I ran across Wild Thing by Susan Claudino. This precious little monster is inspired by Maurice Sendak’s unconventional children’s story, “Where The Wild Things Are.” The pattern has instructions for a basic monster, as well as a monster wearing adorable pajamas, complete with a buttoned flap on his tushie.

When I first saw the photograph I doubted my knitting skills while admiring all of his tiny pieces.  The project went so quickly and the pattern was so well written that I couldn’t stop knitting him and I decided to make three.

Where The Wild Things Are_3

Not only is this the perfect project for the toy drive it is also the perfect baby gift to pair with the book. The last day to donate toys for the drive will be August 31st. Thanks so much for everyone’s participation, we have collected over 30 toys so far!!
