Whoo!  I've been dying to make a sock monkey forever.  I was doing the laundry and found that one of my favorite (yellow) pairs of socks had a large hole in one of them, so...

It's Mr. Unibrow!!!  A sock monkey made from monkey socks!

Pink unibrow goodness

The end of his tail

The toes of the socks were monkey faces.   He's all hand-sewn and a bit wonky in places, but now I'm addicted!

Ok...more promo items are done, and the custom wallets are put together in my computer.

Promo pendants:

A local fabric store is going out of business and all the yarn is half off -- maybe more later!!!  So I went and got so much Fun Fur.  In the next three weeks I have to make as many monster hats that I can for the craft fair (or my Etsy shop in case those plans fall through):

Ugh.  My digi cam's at the Canon Hospital for broken cameras, so I had to take these with my camera phone.  Tongue

I think I'm going to keep my Top Three in my sig to remind me! Tongue

Before -- booooring:

After.  Dark brown (can't tell with the flash) with bright red underneath, plus a big chunk up front.  Cut shorter and flippy.

Slightly blurry, but damn is it hard to photograph the back of your head!

New bangs!  I love them. 

I'm a hairstylist and I would recommend at least tipping like you normally would at a restaurant. If they do a good job and are personable, be generous. It's very very encouraging to get a larger tip, especially because some people aren't good at vocally expressing appreciation.

Thanks for the advice!  I was told to give her $10 -- by a family member.  Shocked .

Here is my hair now -- as close to my natural color as I'll ever get again, and longer than I've had it in about six years.  The curl is natural and can get really crazy sometimes.

Now, I don't need advice on a cut, but a color.  I've been red, purple, blue, black and red streaked, black and blonde streaked, and numerous brunette/plum shades.  The thing is that I just graduated from this junior college full of weird and different people (and all my crazy arty friends) and went on to a university that is about 90% prep.  I kind of went right into studying and stopped with the whole "self-expression" thing.  I want to just do something different, like I would've done a few years ago.  I've been thinking about black with a blonde or red underlayer.  Now, would that be possible with layers?  Another problem is that I'm super pale with a lot of red in my face.  I've been following this thread forever and love everyone's look -- I totally wish I could go all out with black and multi-colored!  I would love suggestions of any kind!  Just no mad rad hair, please...I already go there a lot!

I'd spinning a custom yarn for a trade.  She asked for "Strawberries & Cream".  Natural wool dyed with a lot of pink lemonade - and half a pack of tropical punch Kool aid:

The first skein

My spindle's almost full of the second skein, plus I have a lot more roving

I'm thinking of just dyeing and spinning for each month.  It'll help me destash a bit. Wink

I made more!

Baby penguin (using baby yarn)

I have so much more of this yarn, that i'm making a whole army!

The other one -- my mom put the hat on him:

And a wee piggy:

Funny thing is, that a few people have thought it was an ant eater.  So I'm making another one, but extending the snout and adding a thicker tail (perhaps the kangaroo's)

29  Knitty's Satchel -- Felted Messenger Bag in Knitting: Completed Projects by taped_on_wings on: June 10, 2006 05:22:45 PM
I basically started out with the pattern for Satchel (the smaller bag although mine turned out a heck of a lot bigger): http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer05/PATTsatchel.html but used different yarn, knit it flat sice I wanted a more structured bag, didn't bother with the I-cord thing, and changed the striping pattern.  In the end, I believe the only thing I used the pattern for was how long the strap should be before felting.  I've already had many requests and compliments on this.  I'm absolutely in love with it!

Whole she-bang:

The inside pocket:

I used Patons Classic Wool.  It felted beautifully and is very durable.  They just came out with a bunch of new colors, so I see quite a few of these bags in my future.   Wink

Thanks for looking!

Haha...I love Myspace.  Although I use it to keep in touch with old college friends.  I love those shirts too, but I'm going to make one like this:

Just without Hunter Burgan in it (it's actually his profile pic).  Cheesy
