"If at first you don't succeed - give up"
I wanted to make an amigurumi monkey as a birthday present for one of Molly's friends. I liked this one
from this book, but after staring at this for an hour and none of it making a blind bit of sense -
I gave up. I mean, 'reelly' how's a girl supposed to understand that ?
So I made a much simpler version up as I went along instead.
I did manage to follow the instructions for the hat, (once I found out which part was the hat - thanks to this extremely useful chart at My little Mochi), but the rest of it was just too much for me. It's a lovely little book and I've followed the instructions successfully on some of the other animals, so I'd still recommend it. (I can't remember if I've already posted pictures from this book ? - I'll search through my archives later and if I haven't I will next week).
Also,there is a great free pattern on the web which makes a bigger very cute monkey here.
I suspect part of the problem in trying to make sense of the pattern, was due to extreme tiredness. The night before I stayed up acting as Mrs Tippytoes doula, who very cleverly delivered ...
3 little kitties !
I've followed the example of famous celebrities and named them after the first thing I set my eyes on in the food cupboard. I therefore present to you..
Borlotti Beans Tippytoes
Tomato Cardamom Tippytoes
Naturally Sweet Sweetcorn Tippytoes
or Beans, Tom and Sweetie for short.
I hope Jane approves, she's mentioned before that she takes an active interest in the naming of little ones.
Have a great weekend all !
