Evolution of a sea monster

I did a little more work on the starry sock, but mostly tonight I worked on Wee NessieNow she looks like a giant sea slug - I was looking at others and discovered I have messed up somewhere... my tail is waaaay too fat. I'm debating on scrapping it and starting over, or working with what I got - it's for Dave - and just like him - this Nessie is a little... special...

Technical problems aside (it's totally not the pattern - it's me) as far as Hansi patterns go, this one is pretty easy - but if you're thinking of attempting it (or any other Hansi pattern) make sure you can handle lots of wrap and turns, lots of Kitchener stitch and tonnes of fiddly little bits. But the patterns are so cute and ingenious, they are worth it!

LMAO ... yup a giant slug. It's an adorable giant slug though. :)

Ok, start over if you wish, but don't scrap this one - it could be Nessies weird younger brother or something! I think it looks pretty cute so far.

It's so fun to have these odd things come off your needles, isn't it? And I only know that because you encouraged me!

I have the same problem as your little Nessie --- my tail is a bit too thick too. :-(

Ah, if the kid doesn't care...

He'll love it to death and it's shape will morph anyhow.
