First - My friend Grace is on Twitter!! Yay!!! (does the Happy Dance!)
Hey - my post actually starts with a reference to Grace! Cool Co-incidence? Anyway- if you check out Grace's blog LovinComfortKnits You will see she has been on kick to knit monsters. Cute monsters mostly if not all (sorry Grace - sometimes it's hard to keep up - you knit faster than my brain processes information) by Rebecca Danger. I have shown some of them to Curt, if he happens to be sitting by me when I read her blog. As Curt watched me knit these:
He thought I was joining Grace knitting monsters. In fact, he thought he knew which monster I was knitting. If any of you watched Nickelodeon or Cartoon Network (don't remember which) in the 90's before all the really crappy shows came on you may remember a show called "Aahh , Real Monsters" It revolved around a couple of monsters attending Monster School - and having to scare people/pets for their assignments. One of these monsters was Oblina - the female monster.
For the record, I am not knitting siblings for Oblina. I am actually knitting Alan Darts Chess Set and these pieces seamed together will be the chess board. Although Curt seemed kind of disappointed that it wasn't her that I may make one for his birthday in November.
I am knitting the set for NerdWars on Ravelry. To get the 50 points for midpoint check in I needed to be at 50% by yesterday. I posted the picture for check in at 1100pm. So I had a whole hour to spare! So I kind of need to hustle because now I need to knit 32 pieces by Aug 31.
