I made this for our lovely kittykill in the Vintage Halloween Swap last year. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=426691.0#axzz2gOCwqcJT  Her and I both love all the classic Universal Monster movies and well, amigurumi is ma thang, so this is the result!  He was a little fussy to make as I wanted him to be unmistakable.  I'm not sure if I succeeded, but I was pretty happy with the results.  No pattern, just whipped him up.  I was most proud of the fact that I was actually able to give him 'knees' and not just trunks for legs.  Now, I'm hitting myself on the head for not having taken notes as I can't for the life of me remember how I did it. Doh!





some details...


sorry, didn't realize this pic was blurry, but it's supposed to be a detail of his back fin


Thanks for looking!

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know
