It's Penelope's birthday today. She is a little monster, waiting to go to the good home of Gemma, a little girl who just turned 1 (doctor's never thought she would live this long - fight Gemma, fight!). She deserves a little Penelope.

Definitely by far the cutest of the monsters by Danger Crafts, I'm totally in love with her ugly cuteness - more of a geeky disshevelled cute that I can relate to. She is knit out of Spud and Chloe Sweater in Grass and Watermelon, with ribbon from Michael's craft store.  Safety eyes, which could NOT, to my chagrin, be found at Michael's, were ordered from the Etsy store 6060 (see the link to the right). Arrived in approx 1-2 weeks, and now she's done.

It will be hard to part with her, but I know she's going to a good home.

Slobber away, Gemma, slobber away.

Speaking of slobber: the mail man was good to me this week:

1) My first package of Springtree Road Yarns came in (yay!!):

Sangria sock yarn (super super soft):

Pretty olivine in super sock:

I love how on the labels the colourways are in a caligraphy font. Adds to the pretty :)

I also received a package from Valley Yarns, my new skein of Malabrigo Rasta in Solis, pretty pretty blue and greens for another Marion:

A fun week in my life!
