Sam(antha) is an amazing girl who is very artist; she loves poetry, music, thrift stores, and things like finger painting. I love her a lot. Not just any gift would do. Plus she is going to be doing a mission internship in Greece this summer and I wanted to give her something that might be able to accompany her on her travels.
I began thinking Amigurumi.
What could I make for Sam? I pondered slugs (she likes 'em) but couldn't quite figure how I'd make one...(glad I didn't because apparently someone knit her a snail for Christmas) and then I thought perhaps a hamster (she likes them too) but couldn't quite get my mind around that either.
I would make Sam a monster and it would have one eye and a smirk. And she would appreciate that.
I'm pretty sure she named him Sven. And he and the knitted snail are going to be BFF's.
Happy (1 week after) your birthday, Sam!
