Pattern: Brainmonster by the awesome Cyn (adult size for cartoon-head kid)
http://www.cyn.ca/knit/patterns/brainmonster/

Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash, red, 1 skein + Dalegarn Free Style Superwash wool (white), 1 skein (together enough for the hat, slippers, and mittens)

Needles: #6

This pattern rocks.  Worked perfectly!  Though would have turned out a bit too small if I'd been making it for me. 

Still had yarn, still had time, so....



For this one, I just used my Grandma's slipper pattern (http://merp.wordpress.com/2007/02/24/grandma-slippers-i-take-up-the-torch-needle/ and added some teeth and a tongue. 

More detail, more pics of both on my blog. 



Too cool for words.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.


The northern downpour sends its love.
