Andy and Nori Hand Knit Monster

Andy and Nori Hand Knit Monster

Feeling lonely?  Andy (striped) and Nori (black) are here for you!  When they were little, they were left alone a lot so they got creative with their time—playing pranks, creating imaginary worlds and having endless conversations. Now that they’re big, they enjoy their long talks over a good cup of coffee.  They also adore cuddles and walks on the beach. 

Andy and Nori have two favorite days in the year:  February 13, the eve of Valentine’s Day, where they will make sure you will feel their love and celebrate what’s cool about being single and November 11, which is also known as singles day in China (11/11—get it).  You’ll never be alone when you’re with these two rascals.

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!

Andy is the striped monster.  Nori is black with red and white feet.  You can buy Andy and Nori separately or together.

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, the income from the sales of the products 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.
