When I was setting up the blog last week I was a bit stumped by the banner picture space at the top. I didn’t really have anything, so I stuck up a picture of my turtles. It’s not the best picture, and it’s not really that appropriate for this blog. Today I tried my octopuses. It doesn’t really seem quite right, either.
After mulling it over, I decided I need to crochet five monkeys, for my five monkeys, and use a picture of them. That means I have to make a monkey pattern. Here’s my sketch. At first I was thinking the “boy” monkeys would have little hats, but I like the idea of little bow ties better. And the “girl” monkey can have a hair bow. How traditional. Hopefully they will be cute.
The turtles are still coming. I’m feeling a bit distracted today (monkeys!) but am still excited to share that pattern. They are so much fun. I’m hoping to do some picture shell variations for them, too: heart, smiley face, flower, etc. If you have any shells you would like to see, let me know and I’ll see what I can do.
