Happy Birthday To You !!!

I have completely finished 3 of the monkeys. Two brown and this one purple one. This one is for my cousin Michelle, Friday is her Birthday and purple is her favorite color. I hope she likes it. I think that they are coming along great, (whenever I can find time to work on them). I also have developed a callus at the base of my pinky finger from making all the monkeys with those little needles. Well, I can't totally blame the little hooks, that's just me trying to divert blame. I just have a big problem choking up on the little needles, you know like holding them to hard to make sure that the stitches are tight. Does anyone know what I can do to get rid of this bothersome callus?

Who's Bright Idea Was This Anyway?

I've had a few people to ask me to make them monkeys, six to be exact. So, I came up with this bright idea to do like an assembly line style thing, were I do all the appendages at one time, then stuff them, then sew the monkeys together. NOT, such a great idea. Forgot that I have a short attention span and that my mind tends to wonder sometimes (majority of the time). But, I have gotten through the legs and ears, Yay! But, I still feels as though I am not making any progress at all. Unrelated info, The birthday girl really like her poncho. The party was great, and we danced all night long.

Great Last Minute Gift

I totally forgot about a birthday party that I was invited to attend later this evening. Yesterday when I was working on my Amineko Cat, I got a reminder phone about the party. I hate going to a function empty handed, you know what I mean? So, I whipped up this quick poncho. I think that it is the perfect last minute gift. It worked up pretty quickly and I know she will love it because she keeps trying to take the one that I make for her sister for the holidays. Little sisters, I swear. (speaking of little sister, let's thank my little sister/model, Free).

My First Atempt At Amigurumi

I've mentioned it before the lion that I made which was my first amigurumi. So....I just wanted to share a picture of my little Simba. I actually made him before the monkey (which was previously posted). Yesterday I found an free Amineko Cat Pattern.

It was on, I'll let you guys know how it comes out.

Free Rules !¡!

We went to see my sister, Free play in her first college tennis tournament. She won 2 matches that we saw today and a lot of matches we didn't catch. It was cool to meet her other team mates. They all were very nice and seem to get along very well. I know that it is not such a great picture, but I took it with my camera phone. That's all that I have to work with right now. I think that the pics are coming out rather well.

Monkey, Monkey, Who's Got The Monkey?

Ta-Da!!! Finally, I was able to add one of my pictures onto my blog (without the use of a digital camera). So.... Here's the monkey that I made I guess about a week and a half ago, hanging from my bedroom curtain. I think that he is the cutest thing ever. I saw a picture of a small crochet monkey, that had only chains for the feet and arms, so this is what I came up with from looking at the picture.
