On the bus I crocheted a cool monster finger puppet. I love his shock of red hair. I wanted to make another one in self striping yarn and as luck would have it I found a skein of my favorite self striping yarn at Michael's in the clearance bin for $2.00. So I got my wish. Then I found some great ribbon yarn and some Fun Fur at the dollar store next door, which probably came from some Walmart craft dept. that got the axe. I also got some tiny black buttons that will make great eyes. Now the buttons in the bead dept. were $2.99 but nearly identical buttons on the button aisle were $2.50, so it pays to look in various departments.
Looking forward to making more puppets soon. But it's bedtime now.
