One of my cousins is having her first baby real soon now. I used to babysit this cousin, so I’m a little verklempt (also: old!).
I decided to knit a stuffed little guy for the baby and thought it was a good time to pull out my copy of Hansi Singh’s Amigurumi Knits! book. I settled on Nessie, her pattern for a Loch Ness Monster.
I pulled some (washable!) Berroco Comfort out of the stash in lime and wild raspberry heather and knit this gal up in a few weeks. The pattern is fairly easy and well-written.
It turned out very cute and gummable, I think. I even found a really cute kids book on Nessie that I’m sending along with it. Can’t wait to meet the baby in December!
