Don't you love it!  (Don't mind the weird cross-eyed photo I took)

The pattern is a combination of a craftster and megaknits pattern. I also used white instead of the called-for grey. Grey just doesnt look right to me.

Its too big for my head, which is great since its for my husband. I wanted to get it done while he is out of town and he will be home in about 2 hours so good timing! I just need to stick it on his head and see if I need to pick up even more stitches for his huge head before I seam it up.

Now I need to make one for me and the boys!

The yarn was Vanna's Choice - I'm no yarn snob!  And this was nice to work with actually - except the red which was just some scrap yarn.  I'd say this took about 20ish hours to do.

Lots and lots of photos and the hilarious first failed attempt on my blog.  http://knittingnoob.wordpress.com/2007/08/13/r2d2-beanie-complete-almost/

I used to be strictly a yarn girl but now I'm teaching myself to sew.  Help! Smiley

Il y a un monstre dans le lac, et il s'appelle Jean-Claude.
Mon ami le monstre sort du lac quand l'eau est trop chaude.
Le monstre vient au Lac du Bois pour jouer de la guitare.
Il aime bien manger les villageois et les monos bizarres. RAAAARAH!
