FO Friday: Lurleen

Over my hiatus, I also finished a Christmas gift for my brother, John.

Behold Lurleen the Laundry Monster!






My brother is the Laundry King in his household. He often uses the laundry room to commiserate after one of his favorite teams loses…like our Seahawks’ heartbreaking, last-second Super Bowl loss two weeks ago. Anyway, I picked Lurleen out for him as soon as I got The Big Book of Knitted Monsters.

I chose UW Husky colors (John’s team) due to their year-round athletic program. The only modification I made was to do two-row stripes on Lurleen’s arms. The scarf was a last minute addition. It’s just garter stitch done lengthwise, and actually came out a bit too long.

The Knitty Gritty

Yarn: Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn in “Purple” and “Sungold”

Needles: US-5 (3.75 mm)

Eyes: 9 mm safety eyes

Finished Size: I totally forgot to measure, but that’s a regular-sized bottle of laundry detergent next to her.

John sent me this the other day:


I think he likes her.  😉
