Do you believe in Sea Monsters?

Well... if they do exist I hope they are as cute as this!I've spent the last two evening knitting flippers and horns. And once again I am astounded at how awesome Hansi Singh is! I love this pattern (this is my fourth Nessie!).
While the other Nessies you've seen have been for others, this one is mine all mine! I still have to make at least four more - but I have until Christmas!
This is a great way to use up left over yarn and I love the mottled effect the hand-dyed yarn gives it.

Now I better get back to knitting socks!

The photos you have taken of Nessie suggest that it might move any moment now. It would not surprise me. It's the cutest you made so far.

Hansi Singh's patterns are amazing. I've done the tree frog and it's quite something! This little Nessie is adorable, and the hand-dyed yarn definitely adds an extra something.
