a few words about miss chelsea elizabeth...

she likes: making kites, dancing in the rain, adventures, little-while friends, letters, whole-leaf tea, crayons, bare feet, jumping in rivers/streams/creeks/waterfalls, language, catching the clock as it changes numbers, sleepovers, trains (big or small), cuddling & waking up before the sun rises, among other random things.

oregon-born, seattle-raised, bellingham-bred and franco-refined, she had moved back to the states from her affairs across the atlantic & now resides in columbia city with french husband & love of her life rémy. they spend most of their time taming the garden, taking care of their three chickens & two cats, and preparing the urban homestead for a new little chick of their own.

dye wrap up

So time just keeps flying right by. I'm currently working 40 hours at Starbucks and volunteering at various middle and high schools to get my classroom observation time in (for grad school applications) before summer starts. I could (and might) write for days about my experiences there, but for now I wanted to show y'all the finished yarn!!

Here's the yellow. It turned out perfect for a lion!

And here's the brown. A bit softer than when it was still wet,
but perfect for a monkey!

Here's what I have so far... half of the head! Not much, I admit.

And here's the pattern I'm using (but tweaked a little;
I'll omit the nose, sew on a monkey face and add a long tail.)
[The pattern comes from Knitted Toy Tales: Irresistible characters for all ages by Laura Long.]

I'm slowly but surely working on getting pieces done. My goal is to have the head done by tonight. I will certainly show you all of the pieces once I'm done knitting & as I sew him up!!
