... because this one is freaking adorable!I've been stuck at home for the past two days with a brutal sinus infection, so I decided, instead of working with the sea slug version, I'd start over from scratch and maybe figure out where I went wrong. I'm glad I did because this wee little Nessie is damn adorable - I almost don't want to give her to Dave for Valentine's Day.
This time I opted for a pink belly. I really liked all the suggestions I got when I requested a belly colour - and I almost went with yellow, but I wasn't sure if I would have enough yellow yarn. So on the first one I did a blue-green belly, similar to what was used in the pattern - but it just wasn't doing it for me. Then I spied this pink yarn in my basket. It's perfect!
And it's such a fat little belly - you just want to smoosh it!
I used glass seed beads for the eyes to give them a little bit of shine.
And as mentioned before - though the pattern calls for worsted weight - I used sock yarn, so Nessie is much, much smaller... how small?That small!
Yes working with sock yarn on 2mm needles made a fiddly pattern even fiddlier - but look at her... she's so cute!
And don't worry about Nessie's slightly deformed brother - I'm going to disembowel him and redo his belly. Eventually (because I'm in no rush fiddle that much any time soon) he'll look just as cute!
Now I need something mindless... Crackghan anyone?
