Meet Karianne. She's a kindhearted kindergarten teacher who loves kidney kabobs with ketchup. Her friends say she's a bit of a klutz, but kindhearted. And Karianne has lots of friends - there's table tennis playing Trevor and determined debater Dolly for starters.
We love knit things in general, but especially when they're so playful and fun. The Knit Knoodler has created fantastic (and easy) patterns for making these alphabet people. Each one has a personality and backstory and you're encouraged to "knoodle" around with different yarns, colors and hair and facial features. Patterns are $4 each and included are instructions to add velcro arms so the alphabet friends can join hands and spell words.
The Knit Knoodler's blog has started chronicling "The Secret Lives of Letters" which could give The Bold and the Beautiful a run for its money.
"I just don't know what to do," Dolly declared, dawdling over her doughnut at the diner. "Follow your heart," said Fran, stuffing a fistful of fries in her face. She was famished. She'd just flown in from Florida where she'd been fighting fires. "Easy for you to say. You already have a great guy and your dream job!"
