Mengy Madness – Knitted Critters by Cristy

Cristy describes herself as a graphic designer by day who works to save the world from bad design, and a happy hooker by night who stitches to bring cuteness to the world. Her obsession with knitting started in her last year of design school. She decided to take up knitting before her head exploded with all the stress. Her first scarf was terrible. It was full of holes and dropped stitches, but she proudly displayed it and even got a few compliments from people who didn’t look at it too closely. From scarves to socks to mittens she proceeded to create amigurumis. Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals. Unhappy with the lack of patterns available, Cristy started creating her own. Mengy is her very own brand of amigurumis available onat Etsy.
