GCB Mini Monster

Okay, after finishing Ashton earlier this week, I am in am in the mood to make more amigurumi.  So here is my first one from Monster's Toybox.  This is Mini Monster in the Toy Box:

I used the remaining yarn from making Ashton as well since you only need 65 yards of a main color and 15 yards of a contrasting color to make one.  He is only 7" tall as compared to 12" tall for the full sized Monster in the Toy Box.
This little guy was quick and so much fun to make, I made him with only 3 1/2 hours of work.  I am making more of them as we speak.  I am hoping to find good homes for them soon!

Pattern: Mini Monster in the Toy Box by Alyssa Voznak
Yarn: Dancing Dog Dyeworks Waltz Worsted in GCB and Cavemoss Green
Hook: US G (4.0 mm)

Ashton Mystery CAL

I recently participated in a mystery CAL (Crochet A Long) with the Freshstitches group on Ravelry for September.  As I made the parts for the clues, I was unsure of the end result.  I thought it might have been a fox but I was expecting more parts to be made with clue #3 but there were none.
Here is Ashton:
Ashton is a puppy pillow.  I love how he came out!  Here's his back side too:

I think he has a cute little butt with a stubby tail.  Don't you just want to hug him!
