Pattern: Maddox the Mischievous Monster by Rebecca Danger
Needles: US 5
Notes: Made this for my friend Jenny for her birthday. I really enjoyed making him and I’m actually kind of sad we had to part. Jenny loves him though, so I know he’s in a good home. I’ll make another for myself eventually. Toys are a nice break from functional knits though, you could argue that his function is to bring joy into my life.
In other news, I just signed up for a spinning (yarn-spinning, not bike-spinning) class at Mocha’s Fiber Connection. It’s all the way out in Colchester but I’m dying to learn! Not that I can afford a wheel anytime soon but at least I’ll know if it’s for me. They also rent out wheels for 15 bucks a week. I really like the idea of completing a project from total start to finish. From spinning the fiber into yarn to knitting it up into a wearable garment.
