Friday Favorites 11/19: Monsters

I've only got about 30 minutes so I'm going to try and be quick and get right down to business.


Not the kind that are under your bed or in your closet, but the kind that you can snuggle and hug and love! Specifically, those designed by Rebecca Danger!  These little monsters have been popping up all over Raverly, and people's blogs.  I imagine these creatures hiding around the house, waiting to be found and loved.  In your slippers, under the covers, in the pantry...I don't know why but that's what comes to mind.

Check out all these great patterns because I'm only going to highlight a few, although I love them all!

Christmas Hooligans, how fun is that?  I love the stripes and Christmas colors, but truly they'd be fun any time of the year.  A friend of mine of Ravelry, ljaecocker,  just recently posted a picture of her monster, check him out HERE.
He's SO cute in his matching hat and scarf.  (He's accompanying a hat and set of fingerless mitts to a new home.)

I love her quirky ears and long limber legs & arms.  She's my very favorite of them all, and probably the first I'd knit, if I ever got any patterns!

These monsters look like they're just having a cozy day, hanging around at home.  And aren't those belly buttons just the greatest? :) X loves pointing out belly buttons.  He'd love these. :)

Penelope makes me think of a loveable pup.  Perhaps because of the spotted eye and perky ears.  She makes me smile, and she looks like she'd love a hug!

My goodness it was hard to just pick a few!  My other favorites of Rebecca's aren't monsters, but just fun stuffies including Zeke the Aloof Alpaca, Napoleon the Nervous Narwhal and Mortimer the Dog Toy.

These creations are fun and full of imagination.  They're outside the box of your traditional toy, one more reason I like them so much!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend.  Next week is Thanksgiving for those of us in the States.  I'm hoping to have the chance to hop on next Friday to share some Thanksgiving favorites, but I won't promise anything since I plan on spending a lot of time with family!

Thanks for stopping by!!


  1. Oh my! How funny! I just found these monster patterns recently! They're the cutest!! I can't decide which ones I want to make, I want to knit them all!! Did you know that Rebecca Danger will have a monster book releasing in January? I found out through KnitPicks. I'm definitely going to purchase it, I can't just have one or two of her patterns, I want every type of monster around my house! hehe
