Monster

Well, I didn't win the contest. but 2 people in my giveaway did...Ann and Spontaneousthreads. I've sent them each an email. Thanks to everyone who voted for me!
Monster for Nicole
I have a little bit of free time right now, so I've been trying to make things here and there for Nicole.

Pattern: Hugo the Couch Potato Monster from The Big Book of Knitted Monsters
Yarn: Berroco Vintage, almost all of one skein
Needles: #5 circs
Started: August 30, Finished: September 1

I've been saving up the remnants of fabric and batting from trimming, etc. to use for stuffing. it makes a very firm and sturdy stuffing. i kind of like it better than polyfil. i like the look of safety eyes, but i stuck with embroidery since it's for a baby. the pattern was easy to follow and very quick. i'd like to make a few more toys from the book.
Mortar & Pestle
i'm guessing that this will be my very last birthday gift of the year. Spicy bought me a new mortar and pestle. it's very heavy. i can't wait to use it.

  6. Very cute monster!
    It's probably a squirrel conspiracy that you didn't win.  Damn squirrels.
