My newest knitting obsession is with toys so I ordered The Big Book of Knitted Monsters and Itty Bitty Toys.
I'm really excited about some of the patterns in here. I'd love to make the stacked boxes for J (he still gets a kick out of things being knocked over). I'm also planning on making the bear for my niece and the puppets for my mom's classroom. I 'd like to make the hippo too, even though I do not have a recipient in mind.
I haven't decided what I'm making out of here yet, but I figured it would be a good book to make things for the boys. I'm leaning towards the mommy and baby monsters and the garden monster but I plan to make them all eventually.
The bad thing about getting the books is now I have a major case of startitis! Hmmmm what should I pick?
