What you give to a girl who likes pink and monkeys...

When it's crunch time, there's no way I'm going to design a monkey when so many wonderful patterns exist. This is a pattern by ChimuChimu. I added a sundress. She was a big hit with Niece #2 yesterday, who is 7 years old and obsessed with Webkins (she has over 10 now), which are a series of plush animals. She named it Paula.

Simple gnome

I think lawn ornament gnomes are creepy. I don't like them. But when I saw this amigurumi gnome by Else, at home in its little diorama, I had to make one! It is just a little cone, but it has a little felt beard (there's a convenient template in the pattern). I gave it to my sister yesterday as a silly gift. Pattern: Simply a Gnome from Else's Belles Artes

Crochet whale pattern notes

And now, by popular request (maybe 3 peoples)-- my English translation notes on the Pierrot whale pattern! See this previous post if you want to know what materials I used and see additional photos. Here is direct link to the pdf. And here is a link to an @Nifty translated to English webpage.   ETA 10/28/09: A tip: If you want to translate the pattern's webpage to English language, try @Nifty. Paste the URL for the pattern into the small box, click the bottom radio button 日本語から英語, then the bigger button below that one.
