11  Emma, a baby sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by FluffyMonkey on: June 11, 2006 07:30:33 PM
Yep, that's right. This is my own design. It's knit all in one piece, and, yes, it's supposed to look assymetrical. It's not quite as assymetrical as I wanted, but I can correct that later. Without further ado, here she is:

This picture give a little better look at the cute bunny buttons.

I used Simply Soft Baby Brights Ombre, which looked like soft colors, but turned out to be a little more crazy than I usually like. Next time, I think I'll use another color. And make puffed sleeves!

I'm thinking about selling this pattern, as it is my first interesting creation. I might submit it to Knitty.com or something else like that, too.

Let me know what you think.

12  Super cute shoes.... Are they possible? in Shoes: Discussion and Questions by FluffyMonkey on: May 18, 2006 06:46:02 PM
I saw these shoes on eBay, and I love the shape if not the used-while-painting look. I don't know if my skills are quite at this level, but do you think something like some keds could become these?

What do you think it would take?


Oh yeah. Here's the auction if you want to see all the angles and such.

Here's my best yet capelet!

Quite boob-enhancing, if I do say so myself.

Worsted weight Simply Soft with 3/4 length sleeves (well, that's what I meant them to be, anyway). I'm loving it.

Woah... either I need to pull my pants up or shrink them a little. They are really saggy looking. Sorry, guys!

14  Knitty's Trellis and Bev's Baby Seed Cap **Three pictures** in Knitting: Completed Projects by FluffyMonkey on: May 04, 2006 07:36:54 PM
Here's my Trellis in Red Heart Soft Baby:

And the Baby Seed Cap:

Guess what animal it is!!

I changed the hat a bit. I knitted it in the round on size fives and added ears and such. I also made it longer than the pattern called for.

Now together:

And that's all she wrote.

Here is the worsted weight capelet in all its glory:

The edges aren't curling, but, as you can see, the back does something odd, but it doesn't bother me.

16  The most complicated Thing I have ever knit in Knitting: Completed Projects by FluffyMonkey on: January 29, 2006 06:45:15 PM
While the Isabeau Purse really isn't that big of a deal, I've never made anything this involved. I learned some new techniques, too! This was the first project I've ever had to pick up stitches and make increases for, so it was a biig deal for me.

See how cute and innocent it is sitting there?

This is an action shot (because it's holding all of my necessary purse-y things).

Thanks for looking!

These pictures make me think that the ears should go on the sides of the hat rather than the top. I think they could also be noticeably lighter than the rest of the hat, and some little eyes could be really cute! I am obsessed with monkeys, so I may have to steal your idea.

If you want some pictures of real monkeys, I have some of those, too.

18  Re: Crafty Wedding in August, Need a Bit of Help with Invitations and paper stuff!! in Weddings and Bridal Showers by FluffyMonkey on: January 15, 2006 03:53:42 PM
Judging from your use of bows, my invitations may just be perfect for you, too!

For my invitations, I went to a paper warehouse and bought boxes of blank invitations. I would rather have used plain paper and made torn-edged invites, but it didn't work out. I was lucky enough to find some that would work for what I wanted anyway. Anywho, they came with five by seven invitations and folding placecard/rsvp cards with all the size appropriate envelopes. I printed the invitations and folding cards with my own computer, then I cut the folding cards apart because I wanted the rsvp and direction cards to be separate. I tied sheer blue ribbons around the invitations with a little flower sprig tied inside the bow and slipped the rsvp and direction cards with a little self-addressed, stamped envelope through the ribbon on the back. These went into the big envelopes and into the mail! Some of them needed more postage, but most of them went through just fine. Here's the picture:

The black around the edges is from the frame the invitation is mounted in right now (a very sweet wedding gift from a friend), and the ribbon would go up higher, but I didn't want to mess it up while it's mounted.

I hope that helps!


Ps. Have you been to www.theknot.com ? It's fantastic. They have thousands of ideas for wording and how to write your guests' names on the envelope and ceremony ideas and everything! It's fantastic. Then, after your wedding, they automatically send you to thenest.com , which has millions of things for married people. They're so awesome.
