Knit Toys

Erik asked me to knit him the above Graboid, from the movie Tremors.

I knit this "Nautie" for a friend who likes sea monsters.

Myra Crochets

I made the hat on the octopus and helped with the embroidery on both.

The octopus was Myra's first stuffed toy. She did a super job with just a little help from me starting each arm. The pear is her second project and she followed the instructions almost completely on her own.

A place to keep all my dice cozy between games.

He is from the "Big Book of Knitted Monsters"
I used "I love This Yarn Stripes" from Hobby Lobby. Knitted on US7 needles.
He was so much fun to make! In the book, he is called Harold the Houseplant Monster.

Since I had to include a pocket from another monster, I named him Floyd. Because Floyd has to have a place to keep a small notebook and a pencil.

Plain blue fingerless gloves, for dad.

A potato chip scarf, crocheted.

The completed Pinwheel sweater, modeled by my niece.

A very productive month for me.
The sweater took two weeks! I used a bulky weight yarn and US10.5 needles so it was fairly quick.
