Sock Monkey and Bunny Pins

I have a little Sock Monkey keychain on my keys. One day, I put my keys in the front of a blazer pocket and the little Monkey was sticking out. Someone said, "Oh, how cute!"
That got me to thinking.... why don't I make a little pin out of one of these so I could have him on my jacket all the time! :)

Thus Sock Monkey Pins~

And Sock Bunny Pins
This is back side

What do you think? Am I the only one who would wear something like this? :-)

The pictures look a little better here .

Pinwheel Baby Blanket~ Finished!

I finished the Pinwheel! And not a moment to soon... well about an hour late really. :)
The baby shower started at 2 and I was still knitting at 2:30. Yikes!
I was an hour late to the shower, but the guest of honor had
just arrived, so I was ok. :)
Needless to say I didn't block it. I even forgot to measure it. DOH!
I am sure it was over 40' though. It stretched almost to both edges of my double bed.
Here is the whole thing.

Here is a slightly closer view.
And even closer. This shot is a better representation of the colors too.

I used Cottontots by Bernat in Baby Boy Blue(3 skiens) and Sunshine Yellow(1.2 skiens).

Size 6 double points and circular needles.

Border is seed stitch.

The pattern is free and is here.

There is a great Gallery of other beautiful Pinwheels here.

Nike + Apple

I really want this new toy!
Enjoy the short tour of Portland. ;)
