Almost done, just a few more!

I'm always knitting something or other for my DD. It's a pleasure for me. She's easy to knit for, but we have such different taste, and love very different colors. So whenever possible, I let her choose the yarn/color for whatever I'll knit for her.

One of her Christmas gifts this year was another of Stephen West's hat designs (he was very prolific this year!). It's called Raxtur. I'm not keen on knitting Honey comb stitch pattern, but I love the look of it. I like this hat very much, and might have to knit myself one in the future too.

She also got a surprise gift, another knit monster. Actually I made this one first, before I made the Hug Monster. This is Rudy (named by Hannah), I took a pattern by Rebecca Danger starting with her Harold the Houseplant monster pattern, but made a few modifications. I made up the ears entirely, crochet a nose, took the pattern form different monsters to make arms and legs.

Both the hat and the monster are cute! Love those little bones on her ears!

I think she likes him, too! She's also making out like the lottery winner of handmade hats. Lucky her! The one great thing about all of your knitting is that you're stash busting like crazy. For that, I'm jealous!

Happy New Year!
