I finally finished my Angus monster yesterday….
Pattern: Angus the Attic Monster from The Big Book of Knitted Monsters
Yarn: Bear Necessities Pure New Wool 4ply on Folksy
And about half an hour ago the postman rang the doorbell with a package – all the way from California!!! I was so excited as this was my Secret Monster swap package from the Ravelry DangerCrafts group. I had an amazing spoiler, the organiser of the swap NoKnitSherlock, and she had stalked me to perfection!!
She’d made me a Penelope (which I had said I would like) in my two fave colours red and purple, with added Mighty Boosh lightning flashes front and back (see below); a Boosh monkey skull dangly which I’ll hang in the car; a handmade Boosh card; monster pen topper; caffeine free fruit teas; a cute pair of teapot socks in small size for my puny feet; some M&Ms and a packet of colourful buttons. There’s no way that little lot came in at under $5!!
Here’s the detail on Penelope….
I was just thinking to myself before this arrived that I have made 7 monsters so far and have only actually kept two of them. So now I have 3! I hope they all get on!
A quick house update – the bathroom is plastered and hopefully the new suite will be in this week and the tiling almost done by the weekend.
