Penny Hand Knit Monster
Penny feels that all of life’s problems can be solved with a big hug. She is the most upbeat monster you will ever meet and always looks for the silver lining in any situation. She loves daisies, sunny days and giggles. She also really likes tea parties and rolling down grassy hills.
Hand knit with love by a mama who also plants rice in the rice terraces (take a look at the P20 bill to see what they look like).
Each monster is packed in a paper bag with a tag and a note about each monster’s personality— ready for gifting!
Penny is available in the following colors:
- Light pink (with mint blue ears, feet and eye).
- Mint blue (with purple ears, feet and eye).
Penny Monster's body is approximately 7 inches high (without ears and feet) and 9 inches wide (without the arms). Do remember that each hand knit monster is unique and may vary slightly in size.
Knitting Expedition was begun as a way to provide supplementary income for the women of Ifugao to maintain the rice terraces. Instead of leaving the region to find better paying jobs, they are supported by the income from the sales of the products. This allows them to stay and tend to the rice terraces that are not only an awe-inspiring legacy of their town but also of the Philippines and which has provided sustenance for generations of their families. The brand Knitting Expedition also signifies the journey of founders, Candy and Aueeie, as knitters and the distance that the hand-knit products have to travel to make it to your homes.
