Enter the world of the reclusive yet mischievous Impkins!
I’m sure you have seen them out of the corner of your eye from time to time, racing from hiding place to nook or cranny—odd little creatures of stitch and stuffing, of endless variety in form and manner. In these pages, you will not find a taxonomy of their features or a list of the names by which you might call them, you will find guidance on something far more important—the techniques and methods by which you might craft one of these little stitchlings of your very own.
It is a wonderful thing, I assure you, to bring an Impkin to life with hook and yarn, and herein you will find the detailed instructions necessary to craft one, with an endless array of options for ears, antennae, hats, wings, tails, scales, horns, hairstyles, clothing, and accessories. Each Impkin is unique, and only you can listen to find out what yours longs to be. Stitch by stitch, you’ll cast a spell, until at last you have made a brand-new creature. Don’t be surprised if it asks for a snazzy vest or a satchel to hold its treasures!
Though hard to spot at first, when you see one Impkin you can be sure there are more around. Impkins are social little creatures; once you make one, it is sure to clamor for a multitude of friends from your hook!
From the Publisher
Consider, friends, the Impkin.
I’m sure you, just like all of us, have seen one out of the corner of your eye from time to time, racing from hiding place to nook or cranny. Odd little creatures of stitch and stuffing, of endless variety in form and manner . . . though usually a bit shy where most humans are concerned. They generally remain quite still when in view and only move about when they can do so freely without concerning their crafters or other human guests. But when they have the chance, they travel widely, diving into piles of yarn to pass into the space between or traveling through established stitchdoors, all to meet with each other in the Impkingdom hidden between the walls of the world.
What is the purpose of the Impkin?
Do they fill some niche in a secret ecology alongside other wee hidden beings? Do they have a whole society, with their own Imp King or Queen? Do they seek with intent, following the whims of the hearts their crafters granted them? Do they hope, dream, wish, smile, sing, play, and love? Are there other creatures like them?
The answers are, of course, yes to each and every question.
But I will not discuss them further here. After all, you did not seek out this book to learn all about Impkins’ lifestyles or to find a taxonomy of their features or some hidden list of the names by which you might call them—those pages belong to other books. Instead, friend reader, you will find guidance on something far more important: the techniques and methods by which you might craft little stitchlings of your very own. So you stand at the beginning of a great and phenomenal journey.
