Ok, these photos were NOT taken by Miss R, but I wanted to show off another project I’ve been working on.
This little guy is Sackboy from LittleBigPlanet. Yup, a video game. But it’s a FUN video game. Because there’s no winning. The whole point of the game is to work your way through a land of various perils and get STUFF. This is clearly a game invented for Americans. Once you get more STUFF, you can eventually make your own levels and share them with the world (like other players from Japan and South America) and then play on other’s worlds too.
But anyway, the little guy in the game is Sackboy. And he’s a sack. A knitted sack to be exact. So it was only fitting that someone came up with a brilliant pattern to knit one. This one is Ben’s Valentine’s gift from me. If you look closely, you’ll see he even has fingers. Those were tricky! But such a fun knit and once he was stuffed, he was adorably cute.
Miss R has taken to dragging him around the house and giving him stroller rides. That is, when Daddy isn’t looking. Because once he sees HIS Sackboy playing with Baby, he attempts to rescue him back.
And yup, that is a real zipper-but I glued it shut so he doesn’t lose all his stuffing.
