I learned about the FSM from my sister-in-law and just happened to be thinking about birthday present ideas for her so I gave it a shot.
It looked simple, casting on and then off again to make the noodles and then knitting two round meatballs. The videos at this site were a clear way to learn the skills I hadn't tried before. This monster also gave me a reason to try felting a project - throwing it into a washing machine until it got nice and fuzzy. I was a bit scared that he'd either fall apart or clump into a big fuzzy ball, but it turned out to be a very easy process. I sewed the meatballs into place at the end and added his eyes.
I plan to make another set of pasta and meatballs, perhaps with smaller needles to create thinner spaghetti, for our play kitchen.
