Big Luxe Slug

It’s getting a little out-of-control here in the Uncommon Slug department. Our knit slugs are getting fancier and fancier. Slug royalty, fantasy slugs (huh?) even glittery slugs – ew! How lovely!

Quirky stocking stuffers

Merry Christmas Slug stocking stuffers

It’s Fireworks night here tonight which means it’s nearly Christmas! To help make Christmas very merry I’ve designed these knit slug stocking stuffers in berry red, Christmas tree green and snowy white.

You can get them individually, in sets of 3, 5 or 10. Each Merry Christmas Slug is individually trapped in its own cello bag with “Merry Christmas Slug Ho! Ho! Ho!” card topper. How cute tucked in a Christmas stocking?

Individually trapped

Trapped so they don't need wrapped

Two Lullaby Lily friends have already captured sets of 5 and 10. The lady who bought 10 is giving them to her slug-loving friend with the idea that they are used as tree decorations – how clever is that? When she mentioned her sweet idea I imagined them slithering around a Christmas dinner table, ew! Lovely.

I never thought of them as Christmas decorations.

Hello? Do I hear Martha Stewart calling?

Gracie and Zozzy Slugs

Created to order: Gracie and Zozzy Slugs


I love it when someone asks me to make a particular lovey for them. I feel that their energy somehow gets knitted-in and gives the toys something extra.

Here’s my latest custom order – for two co-ordinated slugs; one in mottled purple, the other in mottled pink. Their person wants them to be called “Zozzy and Gracie”. How cute is that?
