Big Beastie’s Big Day!

Big Beastie, Ready for Graduation - CrawCrafts Beasties
It’s been a while since I made a Big Beastie… which is a shame, because knitting Beastie bodies is one of my favourite downtime activities, and Big Beasties involve a good deal more knitting than the regular-size ones! So I’m sure you can imagine how excited I was to get a request for my first Big Beastie of the year… And the fact that it needed to be personalised as well was just the icing on the cake!

Big Beastie’s new friend has just finished studying for a Masters in Trinity College, and she wanted to pick up a memento of her time here in Ireland before heading home to Singapore. What better way to commemorate a stay in Dublin than a locally-grown monster? And this Big Beastie, with his navy and white colour scheme, is a literally dyed-in-the-wool Trinity student!

I also kitted him out with a diploma and mortarboard hat, so he’s ready for the Commencement Ceremony…

…And I embroidered a patch of the Trinity College crest, to remind him of his Alma Mater!

And finally, to help him through those long nights in the library, I’ve given him a pair of stylish specs…

Then there was just time to take a few photos around campus before he set off on his travels! Here he is in front of the old Long Room Library, home to the famous Book of Kells…

…And this sculpture is outside the Berkeley Library. After all, you can’t graduate without clocking up a little bit of library time!

And finally, a shot in front of the Campanile… the first thing that catches your eye when you enter the College through Front Arch!

Have a safe journey, Big Beastie… and here’s wishing you and your new BeastieBuddy every success in post-college life!

  1. I wish I had a Beatie like that when I graduated…. It is simply gorgeous and so so so…. Irish!!! A perfect gift for a foreign student! The crest is A-M-A-S-I-N-G !!
