No care needed

The last couple of weeks have been quite frantic. Today we’re going to celebrate our evening with Sinterklaas and I wanted to make as many gifts as possible myself. And even though I started a couple of months ago, it was as always a race against time to finish it all. And of course I thought just this week of the most complicated gift of them all. I’m not going to tell and show all of them, and certainly not all at once.

Today I want to start with these little cuties.

Three little knitted cacti made for J. He has moved out of our home last year and he loves to make his room cozy and homey. So he bought himself some plants. And you probably can guess what happened….. they didn’t live that long.
So he tried a cactus. Didn’t give it too much care, but some of his (female) friends gave it a bit of water when they visited. So the cactus lasted longer, but in the end, it didn’t survive either.

So as a kind of a joke, I made him these three little ones. The pattern is by Drops/Garnstudio, and the yarn used is Stylecraft Special DK.

Hopefully these will last a bit longer!
