La famiglia della scimmia

Picture 224


I've been slowly building my sock monkey family. The new guy is the grey striped one on the left. He's about six inches taller than his brother because I found some cool "over the knee" socks. Sock Monkeys are slowly taking over my home. As soon as I had finished the new monkey, he demanded I give him the camera so he could take "pics" for his myspace!!!! I guess everyone really does have a Myspace!

Yesterday, Dave and I went to Borders and I finally got to check out "DominKNITrix" . I NEED THIS BOOK!!!! The patterns are so-so, but it covers a lot of things in detail that I haven't done yet. The cover is an extra cool shiny vinyl which makes it that much more exciting to put on the bookshelf or the coffee table. I also took a few minutes to check out Jenny Hart's new "Sublime Stitching" book, which was full of really cute embroidery patterns but, covers the same stitches used in the "Stitch-it Kit". I decided not to buy either, yet. The deciding factor was that the new CRAFT: magazine was out and there is a tutorial for needle felted fruit inside. Again, I understand that it is a $15 magazine but, it's worth it to indulge every now and then (it's only quarterly!).
I'm still working on my list of WIP's, maybe I'll show one off on Wednesday??? What One do you guys want to see???
Take My Cool Poll!

OMG! I really love your sock monkeys. My grandmother made me one when I was a kid, so they brought back a lot of memories. Hey, I got an internal error when I tried to take your poll. Looking at your list of WIP on the right, I'd vote for the Besotted Scarf, as I was considering making that for DH.

i love the domiKNITtrix book not so much for the patterns but for the how-tos--she explains everything SOOOOO well, in two photos i can see how to do something (kitchener stitch, for example) that has completely baffled me no matter where else i've seen it explained
