Just when I thought all was going well and I was getting back on track with blogging...
Le Challenge day arrived.
I was soooo close to finishing my project, but it was getting late and I knew I had to get up for school in the morning :(
But, it is finished now! So I'm sharing anyway!
The theme this month was Thriller, which I found pretty tough. I'm a bit of a grump when it comes to Halloween and this was all my brain could think about.
But then a chat with my sister got me sorted.
Me: The theme is thriller.
My sister: Ah. Michael Jackson.
Me: What am I gonna do, knit one white glove?!
My sister: White socks?
My sister: He had a monkey though. Called Bubbles. Didn't you knit a monkey once?
Me: I have knitted 6 monkeys already. I'm pretty speedy at them now.
My sister: Sorted.
So, meet monkey number 7 - Bubbles!!
I'll be honest, he was already started. A friend (whose children have had 3 of my previous knitted monkeys!) asked if I would make one for her to give as a Christening gift. So there were a few bits of monkey in my knitting bag.
He is from a fabulous book that I just adore called 'knitted wild animals' by Sarah Keen.
I have made quite a few of the animals from this book!
He will very soon belong to a sweet little boy. I hope they have lots of fun together!
Now, I'd better get started on something for next month...
Stripes! Lots of ideas, just need to make the time!
