1  Laundry sorter in What the heck can I do with THIS? by FluffyMonkey on: December 12, 2013 05:34:43 PM
I have a laundry sorter my husband picked out to replace the one we had before our house burned down. It's been six months and the cheapo canvas laundry hamper has torn, and anyway it takes up too much space in my laundry room. Any ideas of how to reuse the frame? My stepson doesn't have much in the way of stuffed animals or I would think that the hamper would still serve pretty well for stuffed toy storage.

2  Medical supplies in What the heck can I do with THIS? by FluffyMonkey on: November 17, 2008 09:59:00 AM
I think I can safely say that no one has posted this before. Behold, the sort of thing you take home when you leave the hospital and yet have no reason to keep:



And so now the question is do I throw it away or is there something interesting to do with it? I doubt i could donate it or anything like that since it's sort of impossible to clean out the inside and I've breathed all up in there. The really sad thing is that I have TWO of these. I forget what they're called, but they're to increase your lung capacity so you don't get pneumonia while you're in the hospital.

3  Knitting for the non-rear-end-enabled (don't worry; pics safe for all eyes!) in Knitting: Completed Projects by FluffyMonkey on: May 04, 2008 12:14:39 PM
I thought I'd be "pc" with my title...  Cheesy

Last Christmas, I had emergency, life-saving surgery. The result was a temporary ileostomy, one of the things I had once viewed as my own personal version of hell on earth. It actually turned out fine, if uncomfortable, but I'll spare you most of the details (if you want to find out, hit up wikipedia, not a google image search. Trust me.).

My ileostomy is located in a different place most because of the extremely bad situation I was in, so I have some issues that most people don't have. My problem is mainly this: The bottom of the snap-and-roll ostomy bags have sharp little corners that poke my legs when I walk. Ouch!

Of course, we all know that the solution to all problems is knitting, so here's what I came up with:



This bag cover is way more fashionable and comfortable than the bag all alone. I also included an unused bag in the shot so you can see what I'm talking about.

Here it is modeled by my ever-patient Jeero:



I figured this was a little more polite than a picture of me wearing it, even though you wouldn't see anything but knitted item and a little tummy.


I don't know how useful this is for all of you, but I was pretty excited about it, even though I quickly realized that it is only helpful while I'm in pj's. I'm already planning its next incarnation.

4  Cropped hoodie shrug with Final Fantasy wings! YAY! in Knitting: Completed Projects by FluffyMonkey on: September 17, 2006 07:18:08 PM
Since I've never done intarsia before, I made a shrug to test out my abilities before I make the dream sweater I'm planning. For this shrug, I used rtrgrrl's cropped shrug/hoodie pattern. The real thing won't be EXACTLY like Rinoa's sweater because I just can't get my head around ribbed intarsia and because I want sleeves, not arm warmers. And I want it short.

Anyway, without further ado, on to the shrug:

Here's the finished pictures of my test for the intarsia chart (since I've never done intarsia before). I plan to do another sweater, maybe a hoodie, in blue and white. For this shrug, I used rtrgrrl's cropped shrug/hoodie pattern.

Here's the pictures of mine. No action shots because the hubby is at work. It's on top of a baby blanket that I just finished today, too. Sorry about the blur; my camera has been really slow to take pictures lately.

7  In search of an intarsia chart **Final Fantasy 8** in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by FluffyMonkey on: August 17, 2006 09:05:42 PM
I recently started playing FF8 again (only the best Final Fantasy I have played thus far), and watching little Rinoa run about on the screen has convinced me that I must knit a cardigan with little wings on the back. The problem is that I can't find a chart for the wings and I don't have the photoshopping skills to make my own. Can someone with all their awesomeness create said chart for me?!

Here are the pictures of the wings:

I like the shape of the wings in the second picture better, even though they're hard to see. That was the best picture I could find.

Thanks for your help!

8  The Lake House in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by FluffyMonkey on: June 18, 2006 10:08:36 AM
Who else was busy oggling Sandra Bullock's gorgeous sweaters and other knitwear instead of paying attention to the film?

My favorite was her cream cardigan sweater. So cute. I really want to make one.

This is the best picture I could find in a google search:


What do you think?

9  hobo bag pattern? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by FluffyMonkey on: June 12, 2006 04:20:40 PM
I really want a hobo bag like this one:



I've been searching for a pattern, but I haven't found one yet. Do any of you have a suggestion, or do you know how to make one?
