So the last time I knitted, I was probably ten years old and knitting with my gran. As I remember, I managed about 8 inches of stockinette before I entirely lost interest and unraveled the lot, and that was the end of that hobby. However, over the holidays, both my MiL and SiL were knitting, and it turns out that knitting is a bit like the common cold and has no known cure. So a trip to Joann's for some knitting needles (pretty blue ones!) and a trip to the basement to raid the box of weird leftover yarns later... I had a few false starts (including about 2 feet of scarf in a beautiful soft cotton yarn, which I have unwound to reuse for another project because I dont want it to go to waste as it's so snuggly and lovely) but I ended up with this!
I wanted it for myself but ran out of yarn so my monster has it now.
I apologise for the fuzzy pics, but 1) my dSLR's battery is dead and 2) the only place the monster would stay still so I could take pics was the top of the stairs, and I wasn't allowed to turn the light on or he ran away...
C&C greatly appreciated (but be nice, or I'll set the monster on ya )
