Salt Dough Ornaments

After reading through my blog list I so want to try to do these this year.  The Lazy Hobbyhopper posted the ornament's she made over the weekend and I am feeling so inspired now!  Good thing I am going to AC Moore today at lunch. =)

Sweet Mocha Sock Monkey for Joanne

Since I had to give away the sock monkey I made for the NC State Fair because I glued the eyes and mouth on instead of sewing them, I have started a new one for Miss J.  I am doing a pattern change up from the Red Heart sock monkey pattern to the basic sock monkey pattern in my copy of Monkey Business by Patons.  This pattern is working up great now that I have learned to be really careful on the round where you start the body by crocheting around the legs.  I went back and counted the stitches twice before continuing. 

Yarn I am using for the Sweet Mocha Sock Monkey.

The first leg of the sock monkey.  Funny how the colors made a stripe pattern.

Body section about half way done in this picture.

Since the monkey is turning out much larger that I had envisioned, must go off to AC Moore today at lunch to get some larger gauge safety eyes so I can get them attached and start closing up the monkey's head.  Keeping my fingers crossed that I will not run out of the Sweet Mocha yarn.  Still have two arms, one tail and four ear pieces left to make.

Grammie's been shopping

Joanne's Grammie is been busy Christmas shopping over the last few weeks.  Boy oh boy is Miss J going to have fun.  

 Radio Flyer Girl's Big Flyer

I think this one is to torture Mommy.  LOL  I had one of these as a kid and ran this thing until it fell apart.   I can remember mine have a big chunk missing from the front wheel but I kept on riding.  My Mom says she can track me through the neighborhood by the noise it made.

Sophie Rose Animal-Print Fleece Jacket

Grammie always gets her something pink and with animal print on it somehow.  Lets just say Miss J will not be hurting for a coat this winter.  Very cute!


 Fisher Price Roll Along Musical Pony

This is very cute and she can ride it in the house and out on the back deck.  Think she is set for pink things this year.  LOL

First rectangle completed!!

Finished up the first rectangle today on my break.  Not looking forward to having to block all 40 of these things but the ends are curling bad so it must be done.

Halloween 2011

Miss J barely squeezed into her 3T-4T costume last night.  She was a Cat Ballerina.  She loved the tutu!!!  Since it was raining and she was not feeling well, we just played in the house and gave out candy to the brave kids who came out in the rain to get some candy.  Next year will probably have to make her one since she is so tall for her age.
