The Alien Has Landed.

Meet Arnold! I got a rare knitting request from hubs when he saw this pattern and as I took over a year to finish his last request (Sackboy) I thought I'd get started straight away to avoid nagging..lol.
'Arnold' (as he was named ) is around 16" from head to toe and around 17" from arm end to arm end. The pattern was from booklet called 'Irresistible Gifts to Knit', which was inside the Simply Knitting magazine.
The yarn is a new colourway (Aqua ) from Patons..part of their Fab Dk range but with a great self patterning effect and at only £2.20 (from my LYS..prices may vary) for 100g was a great buy.

Arnold now takes pride of place in the middle of our bed (...hmmm ever heard the expression 'three's a crowd'?).
