Is it a monster??
Is it a monster?
Hello, and welcome to another rainy sunday!
I had a fab day yesterday dyeing yarn with my sister, i have a million photos to share but need to sort them first, so i thought i would brighten up your rainy day with some photos of my latest finished project.
My friend Becky is having her 2nd baby boy in a matter of days (or is due) so i thought i best make 'big brother' a little present too.
So i settled on this guy
I used Kool Kotton which is my yarn of choice for monsters it appears.
the body knit up crazy fast, as only knitting in the round can do.
3 needle bind off for the head and we were away!
the arms were supposed to be done in the round, magic loop, but there was only like 6 stitches so i did them flat and sewed them up, which i know doesn't look as good but you know!
saturday morning (yesterday) i got to sewing.
Im not sure if you know but the postage in the UK is about to go up crazy amounts so i thought i would get in there today and post the monster and the rest of the baby things i had made.
and here he is having a sit in a pot of Lillies my mam brought up.
I didn't do the tooth or the bobble hands, coz frankly i had ran out of time, but I'm really pleased with him.
Something i made for the new baby is this cardi Baby Sophisticate i love this pattern it is my go to baby cardi, i have done 2 so far and about to start another.
I do like miss matching buttons on cardigans.
Right thats all for today, speaking of babies i am off to see my friend Heather who recently shared some news of her own.
right best dash, i still haven't sorted what knitting I'm taking lol
Have a nice rainy sunday
