My first attempt at a felt monster below. I think it's cute!

I've had a lot of spare time, and I've been learning new stitches on the loom. I've learned the knit stitch (stockingette) and purl, and combined the 2 into a garter stitch. I've knit some socks and wristwarmers with the garter stitch and a pair of mittens for my mom (I made her a matching hat last year) for her birthday. They aren't as huge as they look (camera angles) and they're really warm. Winters coming and we need our mittens! Those are also my first attempt at making mittens, I used a simple e-wrap for that.

I learned the knit stitch and garter stitch on the loom. The orange socks are done with the garter stitch, the rainbow socks with the knit stitch. I sewed the head wrap with a tie dye type flannel and made a fall coloured toque as well!
