21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / iMonkeys on: October 30, 2005 07:03:10 AM
Hi all.

This is kinda my first post on craftster (which would have to be one of the coolest sites around & keeps me away from my work for great periods of time). I've only recently been convinced to take up the needle/hook & yarn by a dear knitty friend & have delighted in telling friends/family I've started using needles & when they look suitably shocked clarifying that I'm talking about knitting kneedles & I'm not gonna steal their telly to sell for a hit (ho-ho-ho).

So after my knitty friend showed me the basics of knitting & sent me on my way, with a copy of Stitch & Bitch tucked under my arm, I knitted a few socks for my, in transit, ipod nano (I weren't gonna pay 40-odd dollars for some ghastly coloured socks). At the same time I'd discovered amigurumi (kawaii) so jumped on the net & tried to figure out crochet. I crochet my first sock then decided it need sprucing up a bit so put two & two together & got ipod-sock-monkey. MY first attempt was a bit rough (brown monkey) & after playing around worked out it was better to work off both sides of a chain than to make a tube & sew the ends. The orange/red one was my second go-round & I like him a whole lot better, but my favourite by far is my albino lab-monkey.

Since finishing my iMonkeys I've also learnt to crochet through both loops, I was only working in the outside(?) loops but I think they turned out pretty good.
