Not-so-scary monsters for Halloween

Penelope 1Penelope 2These are two different versions of Penelope, the empathetic monster – one of the patterns available from Dangercrafts. The Penelopes were quick and easy to make, and a great use of yarn from my (ever-growing stash). I made the orange and red Penelope out of Blue Sky Alpacas dyed cotton, and the lime green and aqua Penelope out of Knit Picks crayon boucle yarn. The Blue Sky Alpacas version worked a lot better, even though it turned out smaller, because the cotton does stretch nearly as much, so it’s easier to stuff Penelope without stretching her all out of shape. Just in time to give to the girls for Halloween!
