Penelope and pals

Here's the latest addition to the nursery critter collection - Penelope:


Pattern: Penelope the Empathetic monster by Rebecca Danger
Yarn: Main colour is the very lovely Mama Blue Troika Sport in colourway Poppy, with pink Berrocco comfort ears, feet and eye spot (which oddly enough matches the nursery walls perfectly).
Needle: US Size 5
Modifications: I used crochet to create the eye spot vs knitting it - just because I found it too fiddly to knit. (Lazy, yes! ;o) And then embroidered the black eye balls and white felt teeth vs glue.


Here's Penelope with her monster pals. Ooh I can't wait for the room to start taking shape...
