Rollo the miserable monster

So this is Rollo

Rollo is a little miserable monster (a yeti in fact) made of snowflake dk yarn, dk yarn, safety eyes and a safety cats nose. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship when it comes to sirdars snowflake yarn because I love the effect you get using it but it often makes me lose the will to live as it is so difficult to use. Embroidering it as well causes problems but I think it was worth it. He has little feet and extra long arms. Finally for some finishing touches I added some blush because obviously he'd be cold being a yeti and also some nipples to give him that more monstery look (although maybe that's the reason he's blushing).
