The first in a series of knitted gifts for my soon-to-be niece, due in August. I thought about making her a bear, but somehow when I was working on it, it turned into a cyclops. That sort of thing just happens sometimes.
Close up of the flower hat:
Current task is to make it some brothers and sisters (I wouldn't be a good auntie if I didn't spoil my niece from the day she is born), and to come up with a backstory for the creature. I kind of want to give it a proper taxonomy name, like "cyclops amaranthus" (purple cyclops) or something along those lines. Any suggestions?
