A Paradise for Monkeys, Knit and Crochet

April 26, 2013

This post is part of the Fourth Annual Knit and Crochet Blog Week by EskimimiMakes. For seven days in a row, EskimimiMakes issues a challenge: a topic for each day, for knitters to blog about. You can find all the topics here. Today is day 5 of the challenge: The Do-Something-Different-Day!

A few days ago, I brainstormed about changing Kate Davies' Tortoise and Hare into a project devoted to the Monkey-God. Today, I have advanced the masterplan. The gnome-minions have chased away all reptiles and hopping mamals to make place for a New World Order of Squirrel Monkeys. I made a chart of the monkeys and some delicious food to sacrifice for the honour of house Monkey. 

Disclaimer: the start of this animation is not the actual chart by Kate Davies, and is not meant to knit up.
If you do want to knit a Tortoise and Hare sweater, buy Kate's design here.

The end result is a chart I designed. This brings me one step closer to the actual creation of the House Monkey Sweater. All hail House Monkey!
