I found out this weekend the critters I have been making are able to knit. I was not aware of their having that particular talent, but I came downstairs early this morning and found three of them sitting around in a little circle knitting away and having a wee chat by candle light.

It was all very sweet, and this one was kind enough to sit for a photo. (I could be wrong, but...
