Royal Petites Animals

Hailing from the wilds of Kazungula, Hector is a reserved sort of fellow, having spent his early years in the shadow of his many older brothers and sister (hippos are a hierarchical bunch, you see). Hes a lover of long soaks in the bath, a voracious reader, and always up for a thoughtful discussion about current events. He’s also a very good listener, and will drop everything to be there when you need him.

One Hank Wonders

Knitting is time consuming, so every once and awhile we think knitters deserve the instant gratification of a one hank wonder. They're a great solution for a last minute gift or to get rid of extra yarn.
