Jacobus and Saar


Meet Jacobus and his buddy Saar, more Annita Wilschut designs. In fact, she’s also designed Jabobus’s overalls and Saar’s dress. All of Wilschut’s patterns are available on Ravelry.

These little monkeys tickle my knitting funny bone more than anything I’ve knit in a long while. Vera was fun. Joris was a hoot. But these guys are possibly the best monkeys in all the knitting kingdom. And we’ve got lots of monkeys in the kingdom.

Jacobus is sitting on my desk telling me he should have been featured first because he’s older than Saar (by a few days). He says I’m always fighting against female stereotypes and then I do the “ladies first” thing. Sigh.



There. Jacobus has quieted down some. Now Saar is tossing little gobs of yarnie bits at Jacobus. She found them on the desk. He’s making spitballs out of the yarnie bits and…

Jacobus, who plans to study law, is telling me I need a signed release before I can publish his photo on my blog. He’s threatening to sue for invasion of privacy and misappropriation of his likeness. I told him to add false imprisonment to his complaint because he’s about to put into my cedar closet.
