mom had picked him out from my big book of knitted monsters, on one of my previous trips home.
of course, i picked out yarn and started right away ... and got "distracted" by other projects. and, he got a bit neglected. how sad!
and i wanted to finish him as a surprise, but i absolutely SUCK at surprises. i'm so excited, i end up blabbing or confessing before the gift is given. what can i say?
this is Toothy Joe. he is the offical mailbox monster. maybe he's the reason you didn't get 'that' bill (thus, missed a payment)? maybe he's the reason the stamp "fell" off your letter and it was 'returned to sender'? maybe he's the reason there was no delivery today? (no!)
he's knitted with a couple of yarns from the Hobby Lobby.
both yarns make great monsters! the lighter green is called SPARK. it has a bit of glitzy nylon wrapped around the cotton, giving off an iridescent sparkle.
