Vincent was a quick knit for me, I started him Oct 24th and he was completed by the 26th. He is made out of Patons Classic Merino Wool from Fuzzy Mitten's Bat and Jack O'Lantern pattern.
I was thinking of naming him after a hunky vamp from True Blood but I'm not a huge fan of Bill and Eric would be blonde so that name was out. I then remembered an old movie from 1959 called The Bat with Agnes Moorehead and Vincent Price. I embroidered some baby blue eyes to match Mr. Price and voila!
I'm very proud of his eyes, I think that they came out wonderfully. I'm sure that Vincent will not be alone for much longer, I can see knitting several more of these guys.
