After spending a day at school preparing for the new term that begins next week (we may have ice, snow, or maybe just rain tomorrow, and I wasn't taking a chance), spent the evening working on Penelope the Empathetic Monster for the 600 Monsters for Newtown group. At this point, because Newtown is already overwhelmed with gifts for the children of Sandy Hook School, the group is planning to distribute knitted friendly monsters to kids all over the nation who are victims of gun violence in honor of those lost in the Newtown shooting. My Penelope is finished and her glued-on mouth is drying. Pictures later. I think I'll also do Toothy Joe the Mailbox Monster, and maybe Vinny V. Also did my click-to-donate sites.
