An Xmas present 2009: a knitted version of the Reddit Alien.
I thought my girlfriend couldn't get any cooler, and then she goes and pulls a stunt like this. On Xmas morning, I open my gifts from her: the shoes I wanted (original black Converse All Stars), the complete box set of the West Wing, and this knitted alien.
She is, in modern parlance, a keeper.
It stands about 45 cm tall. It's stuffed with foam like a good old-fashioned toy, and the bottom has beads in so that it can also stand upright freely. The antenna sways gently as you cradle it, lovingly in your arms.
