More Nerd Wars FOs

I was planning to show you my gorgeous cowl today, but unfortunately my photographer is otherwise engaged this morning, and self portraits just didn't do it justice. That'll teach me for not taking pictures until the last minute *laughs*

So, instead, here are a couple more FOs that I submitted to Nerd Wars.

First up, the awesomest baby hat ever...


Picture 661

Seriously, what baby doesn't need a flaming hat?! As ever, this is not a hint that I'm having a baby, it's just that sometimes baby knits are so much fun *laughs* Due to the lack of aforementioned baby, I have called into action my trusty soft toy to model the hat for me ;)

Silly, I know, but still - cool hat, right? 

Then there's this little guy

My first monster. I love him (although I'm not keeping him). He's only little, which caused some fiddliness, but he's just adorable, if I do say so myself *laughs*

And it's Friday, so you know what to do... Visit Tami'sNatural Suburbia and Wisdom Begins in Wonder. Have a great weekend

  2. Excellent projects. I LOVE that baby hat, I want one on my size! And your monster is great. I hate when things are small and fiddly, but he's worth it.

  6. Baby knits are a lot of fun! I love knitting little baby sweaters because they usually come out great, but take so little time to knit. I've never seen that pattern before though, it looks awesome! Too bad you couldn't make it in an adult size. The monster is also adorable. I can't wait to see your cowl!

  8. The hat is adorable and I just love the little monster! I have been seeing those things all over Ravelry & in the blogosphere. I'm going to have to break down and knit a couple for my nephews.

  10. That's the perfect baby hat that should be made for an adult-sized head.

  11. Awesome hat! Teddy looks very pleased with it. I love your monster, too. I really need to get going and make some of those. I make a little squee sound every time I see one. That's a sign, right?

  12. Wow...your first picture actually looks like the hat is glowing. It's fantastic. My brother's little guy would have needed that hat when he was a baby. He already had the matching shirt :)

  20. Super cute hat, I know a little dude who might need me to knit one of those!

  21. Oh my gosh, that really is the awesomest baby hat ever. (EVER.) The flames look beyond amazing, the shapes and colours are perfection!! I'd have killed for that hat when I was like, thirteen and thought it was edgy to be obsessed with fire. ;) And I'd still totally wear one at not-thirteen, it looks great.

    Love the monster, too, the stripes are gorgeous and your face-assembly is A+ adorable.

  27. I love both but especially the hat! So cool! I once knit a baby outfit that was a pig and had no baby so I put it on a teddy bear. Your model makes perfect sense to me.
