I get really tickled at the variety of things that family and friends ask me to make. Sometimes it's normal, like a cell phone pouch or a cute little dress. But sometimes it's just off the wall.
I made my older sister a sock monkey for her birthday. She has asked for one for months, so I made her a blue sock monkey. Just a plain ol' sock monkey. Yesterday she asked me if she were to give me some gold lame if I could make her monkey a disco outfit. And I still am not sure what is more strange to me... that she wants to make her monkey look like a 70s pimp or that she just so happens to have gold lame on hand.
Also, yesterday, Bill's aunt emailed me to see if I thought I could make some little South Park amigurumis for her oldest daughter for Christmas. I had just happened upon a pattern for them days before, which was kind of odd, but that's not the weird part. This is:
She also asked if I could make something like this for a coworker of hers. What is that? I said that I think I probably could, but it would be crochet instead of knit, because I don't know how to knit like that, nor do I really care to learn right now. But still.... I'm not even sure who or what that is supposed to be.
***UPDATE*** Thanks to a friend of mine on facebook, we have determined that this is Michael Myers.
So, I guess after I finish those sock monkey hats, you can find me making pimp outfits and serial killers.
