Whats that coming over the hill???

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.

you like?

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

What a cute monster, lol, and that sweater is so adorable. I love the idea of the different color and size buttons. We have a first grand baby, a boy born March 6th, and by this fall when the weather is cooler he should fit into something like this. LOVE IT! Thanks for sharing.
Susanne :)
