calling all monsters

Monster Sweater for Blythe

It may be the thick of August (and with the humidity we’ve been having, it certainly feels thick!) but I am already thinking ahead to Halloween and the spooky breezes of fall. And what goes hand in hand with spooky breezes? Monsters, of course!

Bingeing Stranger Things certainly didn’t do anything to dissuade me, and the July Blythe Swap theme being Marvelous Monsters clinched it. However, rather than knitting slimy tentacles, I opted for a monster that is more reminiscent of a jack-o-lantern than something from Alien. Feel free to add your own slime if you’re so inclined!

Brodie Monster

K found a new toy at the Lob and picked it up as an xmas treat for Brodie. We thought he’d pull his usual and destroy it immediately, but surprisingly, he didn’t disembowel it right away. K got Brodie all riled up and then let him pounce it.

Brodie loves playing tug!

I love this one, both because Brodie is sitting like we’ve trained him to do when he wants something, and for the way K posed the monster so its expression is perfect.

Finally, we had to impose some downtime on Brodie, though he still wanted to keep the monster near to him.
