Most awesome Webkinz ever!

As you know, Dave wasn't feeling well on my birthday, so today he decided to make up for it by taking my out to lunch at our favourite little Chinese restaurant in Welland.

On the way back, we stopped a little florist/gift/yarn shoppe in Font Hill, because I needed some Yoda coloured yarn (all will be revealed next post). I did get my yarn, but I also came across the most awesome Webkinz ever.

He's called the Night Mare! And I've called him Asmodeus!I love his fiery little hooves, and his flamey tail!
And check out his horns and spikey mane! Too cute. You know my weakness for mythical stuffies and there was no way this little guy wasn't coming home to join the stuffie dragon collection! He'll fit right in with the fire-breathers!

On the knitting front, I didn't get as much accomplished as I'd hope to. When I gave Dave his hat Friday night, I got a pouty face because "it's not a rolly hat."

So Friday evening, and part of Saturday morning, was spent ripping it back and adding another three inches so he could fold up the bottom edge.

Saturday afternoon was spent running errands, but Dave was driving so I did make some progress on Dad's Christmas socks (I've just finished the heel flap on the second sock).

Saturday night, I stayed up late and finished off Dave's Mom's mittensAs you can see, I stole buttons from Mom's stash and I think they add just the right amount of charm to the cuff.So the Christmas knitting list is down to one more Monster, two 1/2 pairs of socks, and two unmentionable presents. Five knitting days to Christmas.... I don't think I'm going to make it.

Your Asmodeus looks really cute,even his eyes are flames!
Well done with the mittens. I think the buttons are perfect for them.
I like the rolled up hats better too. They are warmer, better for the ears. I hope you'll get everything you want to knit done in time, and still stay sane. :o)

My hubby didn't know about Webkinz until yesterday, when he told me about his boss looking for some penguin Webkinz for her daughter for Christmas. I pointed out that we have a chicken Webkinz that has been sitting in the back seat of our car for a year now! :)
Love the mitts. They are retro-cool!!
