Mav’s Monster

Knitting a monster (and pal) for my great-grandson was great fun! I didn’t completely use up anything from stash, but did make a dent in these three colors. I was inspired by a monster at Six Loose Ladies, my local yarn store – here they are, sitting together on one of the shelves this morning.

There was, of course, no pattern, so I just took the idea and went for contrast and asymmetry. After knit group this morning, I took him? it? them? to visit a friend, and used their farm for an excuse for a photo op; we posed them in a number of places.

      1. You are very lucky then. Now I can create my own yarn with my wheel and it has been a wonderful experience although I still find the need to buy yarn from the stores nearby. Some might call it a sickness, I like to think of it as planning for the future. 😊

  1. Oh, my gosh! Sooooo, cute! I remember Six Loose Ladies from my days when I lived in Proctorsville, VT. They used to have a store there at the bottom of my street. I could practically walk to it. They must have moved. I so wish I could knit. I cannot read a pattern, (I have tried, trust me!) so maybe knitting a patternless monster is the thing for me to try, lol! You are so talented. I really need to find someone with some patience to teach me.


    1. yes – they moved several years ago. Check out the classes on their web site; there’s always something, many designed for beginners. Open knitting on Wednesdays 10 – 12 and Thursdays 5 – 8 are times when there are people with patience to help, if you want to drop in.
