OK, I confess, I am sometimes quite taken aback with just how lovely some of my monsters turn out. “But you made them! Surely you know what they’re going to look like?” – um, no. If I was an expert stitcher, I could plan and predict exactly what my needle would create. But I’m not, plus every sock stretches in a *slightly* different way. Anyway, the unpredictability of monster-making is precisely why I love it so much.
So, every now and then, I have a go at something a little bit different, and then when it’s finished I stand back in amazement and think ‘where did that come from? It’s gorgeous!’. Yes, duh, I’m biased. But… don’t you think this is just a little bit cute?
