Occasionally, I make the time to knit other designer's patterns. It is very rare though, since I feel guilty that I am not working on my own designs. But, sometimes...I just need a break, or I want to try something new or I just want to knit without all the preamble that designing requires.
Yesterday I made a Monster Chunk, these guys are so cute and so quick! I do have Rebecca Danger's The Big Book of Knitted Monsters and I love the monsters in the book, but I wanted something super-fast...so the Chunks won out! This weekend I am heading up to VA to have a little joint birthday party with my adorable nephew and this a little present for him.
Isn't he cute?! I used Malabrigo Merino Worsted in Apple Green and Blue Surf, the safety eyes are from 6060 on Etsy and I grabbed the felt at A.C. Moore.
