Adorable Snow Monster



Where I live we hardly ever get snow - at most one fall a year that disappears within 24 hours. So it was very exciting when we got proper snow a couple of weeks ago that lasted a whole week! With the children off school what could I do (apart from going sledging) but make a snow creature?



I present: the Adorable Snow Monster. He's related to the Abominable Snowman, but clearly he can't possibly be described as abominable - he's only seven inches tall for a start! Also, he's not a man, he's definitely a monster, though he's more likely to hug you than scare you. He has a fat little tummy, soft white fur and short, stubby legs. He loves the snow - those big, six-fingered hands are perfect for making snowballs, and he's really looking forward to the Winter Olympics.

I have just found your blog. I am at the slip knot stage of crotchet!! Was browsing Crafster and saw your adorable snow monster. I hope eventually I will be skilled enough to make something so great. I have recently returned to knitting (badly) having only made squares at school for blankets, so my skill level is appalling. I am trying to be patient though. Your blog is an inspiration. Signing off saying thank you for blogging - a fellow blogger from West Sussex.

Thanks guys! Achelois - nice to meet someone local, keep trying with the crochet or knitting (I can't knit, but then I like crochet too much to put the hours in to learn properly), you will get better!
