There's something lurking below the surface...

Even though I have several projects on the go, I couldn't resist casting on for just one more.
It's one I've wanted to do for a while:
Hansi Singh's Loch Ness Monster. As you can see I've got the main part of the body done. All that's left are the belly and the flippers.

The pattern actually calls for worsted weight yarn, but I'm making mine with sock yarn, so Nessie will be small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. It makes it a little trickier to pick up stitches, but it's going to be uber-cute! I need to get a 2mm round needle before I can do the belly though, and I still have to decide what colour to do.... any suggestions?

PS - thank you for all the well wishes on my health. I'm feeling much better now - though the cats still can't make chicken noodle soup....

Glad you're feeling better! When your cats do learn to make soup, please put them in contact with mine. I could use a cat who could make soup.

How about yellow for the belly? Just a thought...

That is so cool - we love the Loch Ness Monster so for us it is extra cool!

I was thinking maybe a purple belly would be cute!
