Mean Reds

Paul: Tiffany’s? You mean the jewelry store?
Holly: That’s right. I’m crazy about Tiffany’s. Listen. You know those days when you get the
mean reds?
Paul: The “mean reds?” You mean, like the blues?
Holly: No. The blues are because you’re getting fat or it’s been raining too long. You’re just sad, that’s all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you’re afraid, and you don’t know what you’re afraid of. Don’t you ever get that feeling?
(Breakfast at Tiffany’s)
I’ve had the Mean Reds for the past week & when Whip Up announced this weeks theme of “Your Surly Side” I knew I had to join in. I present Mean Red. Red has an antenna for extra sensitivity, claws (to scratch your eyes out) and big black boots for stomping around & kicking things! Fear the Mean Red! (though there’s something about him that makes you still want to hug him)

Red is knit up from red acrylic yarn with yellow & black for the trim. The black boots are needle felted & allow Red to stand on his own two feet. He was knit in the round & stuffed with polyfil.

    • he is SO cute! You can’t stay mean when you have that little guy around, he’s just too cute! Do you follow a pattern or just knit him up from scratch? I’ve been wanting to dabble in little knitted toys but not sure where to start

    • I love Breakfast at Tiffany’s! You have to make a blue one though as well with a different look and an umbrella…

      Perhaps, the whole spectrum needs different emoticons… πŸ™‚
