M.O.M. Club Monday

For my mom’s birthday this year, I gave her a set of little knitted birds. She went NUTS over them and casually mentioned that she would love to subscribe to a sort of “club” from which she could receive a similar cute knitted item each month for a nominal fee. Thus, the “M.O.M.” club (Madeforyou Ofthe Month) club was born! You met July's shipment, Cecil, on Friday, so I thought I'd show off some of the other installments.

The May club installment was a set of Bunny Nuggets by Rebecca Danger. These were all made out of leftover yarn from my stash. The pink and turquoise bunnies are made of Cascade 220 and the brown bunny is made of Debbie Bliss Rialto Aran. Their oversized, fluffy tails are made from some of my very first handspun, which gives a great character.

June's club installment was a Socktopus, also made from leftovers. His body is made of the same Cascade 220 as the pink bunny nugget, and the other two bunny yarns also make an appearance in sock form. Also featured is some lime green Elsebeth Lavold Baby Llama, blue Lion Wool, Malabrigo Worsted in Ravelry Red, and some funky Katia Danubio in a rainbow colorway.

What will be next? Stay tuned... and feel free to submit your suggestions!
