  7. Thank you! It was a lot of fun putting Moe together. Cris~
  8. I made Moe up last night, it took about 4 hours. I didn't take notes to write a pattern, but it was very easy (had to be for me to make it!) It stands about 16" tall. The head/body/legs are all worked as one piece. I started with white at the top and increased until I had 30 stitches. I eyeballed when to change to gray, then decreased at the neck, then increased until it was 30 stitches wide again for the body. You cant see his rump, but I did my first carry behind color changing there (its not very good, but hey I'm learning!) but I used white for 3 rows, red for 3 rows, then white for 3 rows, then back to the gray for a row. For the legs, I crocheted until I was right at halfway across (15 sts) then joined to the other half of the monkey. I worked the gray section of the leg then broke off and repeated on the leftover stitches on the body. I think there's 8 rounds of white before I started the decreases to end the feet. The arms are 12 stitches around, and the tail is 8 stitches around. The ears are 12 stitches around. The mouth was 2 rows of red and 2 rows of white around. Moe will be going to my nephew for his 1st Christmas! Cris~
  9. ROFL! I got the puffy on my way to church last night, so when we get to church my 12 yo says "Mom... I need your scarf, I have a spot on my shirt." Likely story... lol. Yes, I let her wear it. My question is when did she start caring about "spots" on her clothes??? Sounds like I got a great compliment from her as well! I still haven't found that pattern! LOL Cris~
  10. You are so wonderful to share your talent, Kristen! Thank you! Cris~
  11. I am so glad you like them, Traci. The purple one is indeed RH Plush (one skein scarf from SNB HH) The one made from microspun is "original" and I can't seem to find my pattern notes to post it on my blog... must be lost with the hippoes Isn't the microspun heavenly?!? I made my daughter a red one and she sits and pets it like a cat or something LOL Cris~
  12. Haven't forgot ya! Yours is going out TOMORROW!!! (I spent a little more than I should have on someone's bday which left me short postage monies last weekend LOL) Cris~
  13. Awww thanks! I thought I would never get around to finishing the monkey formerly known as Cedrich. Its hard to make anything like that when you've got to hide from the kids to do it. I get to feeling like a crocheting vampire or something Again, thanks It's so nice to be able to share my favorite hobby... and well, the kid- he's pretty special too Cris~
  14. My little guy turned 5 today, and was very surprised when he got Cedrich for a birthday gift. He hasn't let him go since, and has changed his name to Curious George. Cedrich is a Roxy pattern. Cris~
  15. Kristie, Smooth sailing here, I hope to finish the head today. I knew all this lime green yarn would come in handy eventually! LOL Cris~
