Hot off the needles! I’m so excited to say that I have finally knit my first stuffy! I watch a podcast called LegacyKnitz, with Sue and Chelsea (a mother / daughter duo), and they are hosting a stuffy along. You can enter as many times as you want to and the prizes are super cute. You just need to join their Ravelry group and cast on. You can use the hashtag #lksal16 on social media to document your progress or finished objects. Crochet, knit, sew…all stuffies are welcome!
This was a really fun, fast knit from Rebecca Danger’s book The Big Book of Knitted Monsters. I’ve had the book for awhile and the yarn too; however needed that extra push to get started. I’ve got a head start on Christmas knitting, as this will be going to my BFF’s son Lockwood. Here’s the down and dirty…

Petunia and I had a great time taking pictures on the patio today! *You can click each image to make it larger, if you wish.
Until next time, Happy Knitting!
