Weekend Monster

I made a monster over the weekend and finished him :)  He is made of Dancing Dog Dyeworks Yarn, which I special ordered this summer.  She is not taking special orders at this time, but is still dying.

The monster is Melvin the Musical Monster by Danger Crafts :)  I love the monsters! I am going to be making more of these, maybe a chunky yarn next. 

I have started working on the Traveling Sweater project.  I have 4 large wedges and 1 segment (4 segments per large wedge) I need 8 total large wedges.  I know that this has been a long time coming, but I get bored with all the ribbing, I am okay with it now and I am going to try to do a segment per night. 

Soctober is coming!  I am planning on finishing the 4, yes 4, socks I have on the needles.  Then only have 2 on the needles after this.... maybe.

Finshing some Projects and Hexpuffs

I have been working on a test knit as well and it is now done! I am excited to share it with you. I love this designer and I have knit a fair number of her girl designs. Now something for me!

Her name is Elena Nodel and this is the Moody cardi. The pattern will be available at the end of the month  ( I think)

This is the Wendy Knits Summer Mystery Shawlette.  I really like this lime green! I almost wish I would have saved it for socks :)

Also I have made 2 puffs using my own little take on it... I like them, but I am going to need some more to see if they look as neat attached. The points are not very defined and that worries me.
