I posted a while ago that I joined a pretty cool site, Ravelry. It is for yarn crafters. I love looking at the things people make, but one thing that I have to realise is that I am too impatient for yarn crafts. I want results. Now. That being said, I do have 3 yarn projects on the go, a cardigan for Amy, a shrug for me and a scarf for Kate for school.
So I came across this really cool little monkey and since the pattern was free, I thought I would give it a go. A few things, no, he doesn’t have a tail, I have made it but I want to put a pipe cleaner into it so it will be bendable (I had already sewn the arms and legs on when this was suggested to me.) and I would have used a smaller hook. I used a 4mm but since reading up on amigurumi you actually use a smaller hook, so I would use a 3mm hook next time. Although I cannot find my 3mm hook and Spotlight is out of them, what the? I know. I said that too.
I have been busy sewing also. I have made Amy 2 sleeping bags and I bought some more material yesterday to make her another one. Since Amy started sleeping in these, she has been sleeping so well and not waking up! Bliss! (Not that I am home of a night to benefit from it! LOL!)
With the left over flannelette I am going to make some bibs as presents. I was planning on starting on those today.
Yesterday I also bought some bright funky fabric to make a start on a quilted blanket for Amy. I am really excited and looking forward to starting this! I have a picture in my minds eye about what I want it to look like, but I guess with most creations, it usually never turns out how you envisaged it in the first place! Keep your eyes peeled for WIP pics!
