I've made a monster.

Completed him last night, in fact.
Meet Joaquin. Joaquin is a sock monster. Or rather, he was a sock monster.

You see, this morning, Joaquin was sitting on the table all unassuming. Then suddenly -- this happened!!!

Yup, Sweet Pea caught Joaquin with his hand in the cereal bowl. I don't think he's entirely to blame -- I'm sure I saw Sweet Pea force feeding him Mini Wheats while I got the milk out of the fridge.

But justice was swift, and revenge exacted.

"Don't eat my cereal, Joaquin."

For the record, Joaquin is fine. I brought him to work today - just to make sure he doesn't get any cereal burglary in while the house is empty.

The details:

Pattern: Sock Monster by Heather Sebastian of Joey's House

Yarn: Shibuiknits sock. Really nice yarn. I enjoyed working with it, I love the colour - which I can't seem to capture on the camera -- all around, great!

Needles: 2.25 mm. There is nothing quite like tiny yarn on tiny needles. I love the firm fabric I get.

Eyes: The finishing touch! Ordered from 6060 on Etsy. I foresee more eye orders in my future!

Your sock monster is so adorable! Those big round eyes really do add a great finishing touch. I don't dare look at that store. If I do, all my knits are likely to end up looking back at the world.
