Monster Photo Shoot

 Monster number 2 is done.  She is a bit shy with her first ever photo shoot, so she had to be coaxed out of the shade.  Isn't she cute? She is made with Red Heart Boutique Treasure. 
 She is so shy she didn't want a mouth, she just wants to show her love by looking deep into your eyes.  And notice no questionable extremities.  I followed the book this time.  Glad I gave you all a laugh with the last monster.  I think there may be a whole cottage industry out there making questionable male anatomy.  Just think if you are mad at your partner you could twist it, step on it, pull it, you get the picture.  We had a good laugh about all the possibilities at knitting group last week.
 Here she is showing off my crochet vest.  I have stuck to my word and now have nine more squares done after finishing monster number 2.  A total of 108 squares, 45 to go!!!!!!
 This has been a busy, busy, crazy week.  Just trying to keep everything straight has been a trial.  Monster number 2's cuteness has helped.
As I have met my square requirements for the vest, I have started monster number 3.  I think number 2 needs a friend.

Hope your week was a bit more relaxed than mine, and your weekend is even better.

Well, now you have done it. I had no interest in monsters until I saw monster 2. She has me thinking I should send her a hug, but I'm not going to try to knit her cousin. (Ahhh, the temptation...(:

I absolutely adore her. She is just perfect, even if she is a bit shy!

So cute!!! I think you made a wise choice to let her stay so shy as to not show her mouth. It adds to her specialness :) I look forward to seeing monster #3! I'm sure he or she will make a wonderful friend for monster #2.

I love your monster! And I agree, he needs a friend. I think it's oodles of fun that all of us grown women are making toys.. it's fun to revert to childhood, isn't it?
((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Monster number 2 is so cute. First thing I noticed is how well she matched the colors in the plant!

So adorable! And I love the colour of the wool. Red heart yarn always looks super but I don't think its available in the UK.

How can a monster be that lovely? And just born, it's already a knitter.

She is very, very cute for a little monster. Glad to hear your vest is coming along, too. My past week was just filled with busyness ... the kind that leaves me feeling very bleh, along with yucky, dusty weather. Ugh! Hard to feel creative at those times, so I am tryign to get my mojo back on. Hope you have a fabulous weekend. Tammy

Claudia said...

Awww that is the cutest monster on the planet! I love her. I just mighty have to make her myself!

Hope you have a wonderful day. :)

Meredith,

I just love the little monsters. I want to make one for Ireland, but in crochet. I'm really enjoying catching up on all of your posts. I would love to live in your part of the world. Florida is my favorite place to vacation. The beach photos make we wish I wasn't working at the moment. Michael and I were planning an April trip to the beaches near Clearwater, but then I got my job. Oh well, it'll have to wait.
I hope you have a great week:D
Liz
