Well, I seem to have started a few things but not got round to finishing anything!!! :( The first one I started was a normal sock monkey. She still needs her nose, eyes, arms and ears!!!
I stopped making her to make a soft cuddly sock monkey for my friends 2 week old baby. I was meant to be seeing her tomorrow but am not now so her arms and ears may have to wait!! She is very soft and cuddly though and the eyes are felt sewn so no hard bits.
I usually make the sock monkeys on an evening when the kids are in bed as I dont like them being about with needles and stuff. So if I do have time to make something when the kids are up I will usually crochet.
I started a HUGE alien (like the pink one I have already made but much bigger), but had to stop that as the hook I was using snapped! I have snapped 2 hooks now! No rude comments please!!! :P
So, as I snapped the smaller hook I started another alien with a larger hook! And this one is taking forever to make. I think when these 2 aliens are finished, if i want to make another large one a very big hook and thick wool is needed!
On a final note. It was my birthday last week and hubby got me this.
There is an exam at the end of the 10 lessons. It is probably the best present he has ever got me. He still hasnt been forgiven for the jamacain dancing hampster 10 years ago!!! :P
I think one of the most amazing things about him giving me this is that he will not like any of the food I have to cook. I love trying lots of new food and i love cooking. Hubby will not eat anything in a sauce so no stews, casseroles, cottage pie, curry etc, no mince, nothing tomatoey (except pizza), very little veg, and no lentils or chickpeas etc. BUT hubby has said he will try EVERYTHING I make and yes I will be holding him to this!!! Lesson 1 - Moroccan Food - chickpea salad, lamb tagine (moroccan type of stew) and couscous. He will not like any of it but I think I will. I will let you know how it goes, not sure if I will make it next week or the week after depending on when I can get the ingredients in. I cant wait!! :D
He has been told the chocolate making and wine tasting courses would be good presents for xmas and mothers day!!! :D
Thanks for popping in. See you soon x
