Monster Friday!

Last weekend I finished the monster from Modern Baby Crochet - look at how cute he turned out!
I decided to crochet the eyes all in one piece, which meant that he couldn't be googly-eyed as in the pattern photos, but it did save me some additional sewing, which is always a good thing in my book.
The triangular shape makes it easy to put his cuteness on display; he kind of looks like a cross between a monster and a slug or snail! I used nearly the entire skein of Lindon Merino from Three Irish Girls; the name of the colorway is "Rhys," which just happens to be the same name as one of my nephews. The rest of the yarn came from leftover bits and bobs in my stash.

My only other FO for this week is this slouchy hat which I designed with my grey Gotland handspun yarn; the pattern is available for free right here on this blog and you can queue it here on Ravelry!

Thanks for stopping by this week - for FO Friday inspiration, visit the Tami's Amis blog.

Have a crafty weekend!
