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?

Too cute!  I want her!

I don't know about cyclops names, but the gal on ruby gloom with one eye is called "Iris" I think.  Anyway, whatever you call her, your niece will love her to pieces!!!

Thanks everyone Smiley my bf pointed out after I finished it that it looks like the wife of the cyclops from Monsters Inc, maybe.

This is just stupidly cute.

You know what may make a good family? Stick with the flower hat theme and make other nature-esque hats. They could be friendly monsters trying to hide in a garden because...uhh...not sure why, but it'd be cute.
