WIP: Coco the Canister Monster
I just couldn't resist giving one of these adorable critters from Rebecca Danger's book a try. The added bonus to working Coco: getting over my fear of DPNs!

Rebecca uses DPNs for the wee bits of her monsters, and magic loop for the bodies. I used ML to join the legs together, but once the body was established I recast it back to DPN to get some practice working with them.

Finding out that DPNs are more scary looking than working with them really is was almost as good as well, getting what you want for Christmas!
