FO: Squiggy

One Christmas tradition I remember fondly from my childhood is the stuffed animal we would receive in our stockings each year. This tradition continued well into our adulthoods. In fact my mom kept it up until she passed away. This is something I decided to continue with Clark. However, as a knitter I can not just buy an animal I need to make one. So two days before Christmas I cast on for Squiggy and finished him up around 11:30pm on Christmas Eve so he is my final FO of 2012.














The pattern is Squiggy the Squiggle Monster and it was very easy to follow and quick to knit. The yarn is Vanna's Choice in Brick and Patons Classic Wool in Dark Gray Mix. I love him and Clark seems to agree.












Until next time ....

What a nice tradition. It's also a way to connect Clark with the grandmother he never met.
