… or rather, Totoros. (Totoroes? Totori? I have no idea.)
These are a couple of little critters that I finished last year, but couldn’t post about because they were presents for my guy, who just happens to sometimes read the blog. So, you get to see them now. Aren’t they fun?
If you don’t know, a totoro is a forest spirit in the anime movie My Neighbor Totoro by Hayao Miyazaki. It’s a really cute movie, and is the first of several anime films I’ve seen with my guy. So, when I saw the patterns for these guys on Ravelry a short while later, I knew what I was knitting him for Christmas.
They were a lot of fun to make. A little fiddly at times, and I wouldn’t try knitting them with fingering weight yarn (too small!), but they were fun. I might have to make my sister and BIL a set, too.
Suzy liked playing with them too, but not so much that I let her play with them often.
