Your veggies are awesome. My hubby wants me to make some. He loves the eyes.

Renee said...

With his hat on, he can't be---beet! Sorry, couldn't resist. I think he's fabulous.

Steve said...

He certainly does look smashing in his hat!

He sounds like one busy dude; certainly not a deadbeet...

Welcome Mr. Robert J. Beet. My advice to you is to steer clear of the bludgeoning red pepper. That dudes got a shovel and looks like she ain't afraid to use it!

Kimberly said...

Here here for the one and only amazing spreadsheet jockey, Mister Beet! A three time world champion......wow!

AND a Celine Dion fan???

A veggie after my own heart!

Way to go once again Regina on another amazing veggie liberator!

Is he related to Dr. Beat from the Miami Sound Machine Band. Regina you are always an inspiration, and definitely a unique crafter. Maybe Miss. Chiquita Banana will make her debut soon.

Jessica said...

I do especially like the hat!

Mr. Beet if very cool!!

Valerie said...

Wow! I just surfed in from? can't remember, but WOW! I am a slave to patterns, so it's absolutely inspiring to see someone who "frees her mind" and unleashes veggies with eyeballs and koigu jellyfish on the world. Well done! (And again, wow!)

Tara said...

I was with ya right up until Celine Dion, lol.
And I DO love his hat!

Kari said...

Wonderful as usual!

Nancy said...

Ahh every good organisation needs a paper pusher! But keep an eye on that guy, he looks like someone that might put the paper in the "red".

I bet that beet's a good dancer too!

vicki said...

Ellen Bloom said...

What is that spectacular yarn you used for the body of Mr. Beet? Wow! Love the cranberries, to pinks to reds!!! Amazing, as always.

Allena said...

miss kendra said...

Rose said...

He is such a fabulous color, and the hat just makes him perfect!

Micky said...

He is beautiful.
:)

Squishybear said...

hahaha .. the HAT! Too funny! He is just perfect! :-P

Kim Guzman said...

He couldn't be more perfect! I love the new addition to your veggie designs. :-)

Sue said...

What an impressive resume! Love his beety-little eyelid and curly green hair!

Jenn said...

I do indeed adore mr beet, be it with or without said hat. I cannot wait until I can get my paws on these patterns and am able to open up the Texas satellite office of the VLA!

Sue said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! To stiffen the snowflakes, I'm using a product called Stiffy by Plaid that Julie recommended. It looks like watered down white glue. I'm soaking my flakes instead of brushing on the Stiffy like the bottle suggests. Seems more effective. I haven't tried any other products yet. This is my first try at blocking.
I was raised to make due and use what's available therefore things like ironing boards and washing machines are often required for double duty! :D

Jana said...

mmmmm i love beets, especially pickled beets:)

FinnyKnits said...

If he had a black beret he could be a Beet-Nik. Too cheesy? Still, he's hot. Especially with that sly look. Watch out folks!

goldi said...

Yet another awesome addition to the mighty VLA! Please do share what that delicious (maybe I shouldn't say that?!) colored yarn is you used for Mr. Beet. Considering the importance of accuracy in detail he must maintain, you may need to watch that he don't get pickled! The hat is the crowning touch!

klp said...

This has to be my all time favorite beet! Yum :-)
