It comes off clean nearly everything it touches (not carpet and some knit clothing, so still be careful around those!).

Or maybe I should title this, how NOT to do it. I loved this pattern by Alan Dart Devilish Dragon. He does look quite intimidating. Not just his scary eyes, but the fact there are over 40 pieces to knit and sew, as well as this dragon standing nearly 18 inches tall. Oiy! But my [...]
I’m bi-crafty. I knit. I crochet. Some knitters can’t crochet and some crocheters can’t knit, but I love both and highly suggest learning one if you do the other! Case in point… Knitting a hat takes me days. Maybe even weeks if I get bored or the kids keep bugging me, but crocheting a hat… [...]
