This is a little monster I made for a friend in Seattle.  We took some pictures of him (and one of his friends) out & about.  Then. . . tragedy struck, and he had to be left in the Sound.   Cry  His name was Syd Delicious, and he shall be missed

Alas!  I agree--he was too cute to die.  Please tell us the whole sad story.

I prefer to think of him as traveling the world, wreaking cute monster havoc.  The picture with him & his friend (Sally) is taken on a ledge, with rocks underneath, then Puget Sound.  The next picture shows what happened when the wind came & blew Syd & Sally off the ledge.  It was just too far to climb down & retrieve them, alas.  So Syd is on the rocks, probably now swept into the Sound.  Sally herself blew right into the sound (actually, my photo, if you look VERY closely, you can see a little red dot. . . that's Sally making her way out to sea).    It was pretty sad.

He was cute...for a monster...while he was here.   I too was wondering what happened to him and then read the story of his and her passing.  So tragic!  I kept looking near and around the rocks in your last picture for the red dot, but then I see it is the dot in your AVATAR picture!  Sad...

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?

Just think someone may find them and love their little monster friends!!

Think of it more like a 'catch and release' program, you've released them into the wild!!

You have that John Murphy book, don't you?  I made one just like your Syd, but his name is Hemingway and he's gray.

Yep - you got it!  I find it's a great jumping off point - I had never made any stuffed toys before, and now I'm obsessed (and also starting to branch out from socks, with mixed success).

Yeah, me too.  I just made something out of felt and it made me grateful for the elasticity of socks!
