Monsters!

Have you seen them? They are the cutest ‘monsters’ ever and they’re popping up all over blogland :-)  You can see them HERE, and HERE and even HERE and of course HERE! And every time I see one I want to knit one for me!

Penelope is my favorite. . .  that’s her sitting above (picture linked to Rebecca’s Blog), I finally got around to ordering the pattern this week and I’ve made a start on her.

In the mean time while surfing Rebecca’s blog I noticed she had two free patterns – Monster Chunks and Bunny Nuggets! Both just as cute as (but smaller than) the monster clan.  I asked Kristen if she’d like a Monster (but really, the first one I knit is for me) but she said she would rather  have a Bunny Chunk! I informed her that it was either a Monster Chunk or a Bunny Nugget, but she insisted she liked a Bunny Nugget “you can put ears and a bunny tail on the Monster Chunk and he’d be a Bunny Chunk!

Hmmm, yes well, for now I’d like to just try the pattern as it is written . . .  so she settled on a Bunny Nugget,

and here he is :-)

Her favorite color is orange but I didn’t have enough to double the yarn so I used a burnt orange with it too.  He’s one of a kind, that’s for sure! I went out today to buy the eyes and stuffing, so now he’s just waiting to greet Kristen when she gets home from school.
