A special day, another new pattern, and a giveaway
November 21 is a special day around here... it's our family's birthday. A lot of adoptive families also call it "airport day." Simply put, on this day two years ago, a little girl came through the doors of the international customs area at the Detroit International Airport and out family was instantly made complete.
That little bundle has come a long way from her first look at her new parents (and our first look at her). She's got her own personality... her own sense of style... and her own likes and dislikes.
Yup... that's her last night... jeans and a tutu. Twinkle Toes light-up shoes (from Sketchers), a black cat chenille hoodie, and her daddy's favorite hat -- riding mommy's old hobby horse. My Korean kid with fashion tastes trending toward the Polish side of the family. God love her!
One thing Kaia tastes have always included are my amigurumi toys and the monkey (it comes out "mut-ney" when she says it) has always been her favorite. That's why I waited until today to publish Kaia's favorite of my designs... my Amigurumi Monkey pattern.
I hope you'll like this little guy as much as she does.
Since we're all smiles and celebrations today, I thought I'd do a little giveaway too. Two lucky winners will have a chance to take home copies of the monkey pattern... all you have to do is leave a message in the comments and tell me about a special day for you and your family. I'll draw the winners at random on Wednesday (11/24/2010) and announce in a blog post that day.
If you'd rather not take your chances (or wait), you can pick up the pattern today in the Ravelry pattern shop for only $3.00
Thanks for being some of the best blog readers in the world and good luck!
