I had so much fun knitting Bip’s monster that I bought The Big Book Of Knitted Monsters. (Clicking on the book link doesn’t help me at all. I can’t be an Amazon.com affiliate because of the way my state collects taxes.) Then I joined a Ravelry group for monster addicts, er fans. Then I joined up with the Traveling Monsters Swap. The way it works is that all the participants knit a monster small enough to fit in the smallest USPS Priority mail box. On the designated date – which was Tuesday – we each sent our monster to a predesignated person. In a couple of days we will each get a new monster in the mail to enjoy for a couple of weeks. Twice a month we send the monster currently visiting on his or her way and we receive a new monster. A round robin of monsters. We have enough participants to keep going for about 10 months.
Here is the monster I knit:
Isn’t she cute? She is off to her host family in Kansas and adventures unknown. We are going to miss her while she’s gone.
