Mmmm... Cookies

Even if you never click a link in my blog again, click this one. Over the weekend I got a neat email from a knitter in Rhode Island who is using my hat pattern in her knitting ministry. The whole story can be found in her blog. It's a really inspiring story, plus someone learns how to knit. You know you love it when people learn how to knit! So seriously.. click the link.

Saturday I got a package. This was very exciting, as I had to work on Saturday and wasn't in the best of moods. Anyway, I got a package! As I opened the package, a card fell out that said "READ ME FIRST". I thought the package must have been packed very cleverly to have the "READ ME FIRST" card fall out in my lap as soon as I opened it. Inside this
notecard were a bunch of very strict and cranky instructions about "open this then" and "don't mess with that" and "you have to wait for this other thing" and "just do it and stop whining".* Basically, each other thing in the package had a number on it, and I was supposed to open them in order, one per day. That's a great idea until you realize that I got the package on Saturday with items #2, #4, and #5 inside. That means I could open number 2 on Saturday, but I had to skip a WHOLE DAY in hopes that #3 will arrive on Monday. Anyway. I'm not whining and all that. I mean, we likes packages.

Here's present #2. (#1 was that Halloween t-shirt I told you about last week.) It's
Death Match by Lincoln Child, half of the team that brought you such classics as The Relic, Cabinet of Curiosities, and my most recent read from the pair, Brimstone. If you like mysteries with interesting characters, plot twists, and a little blood and guts thrown in, check them out. This particular book has been on my Amazon Wish List for a while, and I'm excited to start reading (and I will, just as soon as I finish Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman).

The inside of the card for this gift reads, "Happy Birthday My Lovely Looney Brooky! Brookey Brookie Mmmm.... Cookies" and is signed "Brenda 'Wild Eye' B*******". This makes me slightly nervous.

Anyway, here's hoping #3 is waiting for me when I get home from work today.

And, as promised, I did do some knitting this weekend. First,
I made a pumpkin! The pattern is one of Knitty's fall surprises. This one is pre-felted, as I don't have a washer in my apartment that is felting-capable. Here are two amazing facts about this pumpkin. Are you sitting down? You should be sitting down. There. I've given you enough time to sit down. Okay. Amazing Fact #1: I started AND finished this project in one weekend. When was the last time I did that? Hmm? Please remain seated. Are you ready? Amazing Fact #2: I had ALL the yarn for this pumpkin already in my stash. I didn't buy one lick of yarn for this pumpkin. I had the yarn, I had the needles, I had the everything. That's right. I find those two things to be incredibly amazing. If you don't find those things to be incredibly amazing, you don't know me as well as you think you do. Find the pattern here. I used Light Lopi for the orange and brown and a wool I'd gotten off of eBay a while back for the green. I can't wait to felt it.

Also, I finished the first Liberty Chevron sock. I am a big fan of this pattern, and I'm really glad I started trying toe-up socks. They make me happy. The only problem with toe-up socks though is the cast off. I've had a hard time finding a cast off that isn't so tight that you can't get the sock on your foot. This time, I tried the tubular cast off, and I think it worked pretty well.

Here's the cuff. I k1p1 ribbed for 10 rows, then double knit for four rows, and then used a darning needle in a manner not unlike kitchener grafting to bind off the stitches. The best tutorial I found online was from this website, which also includes some other cuff-cast-off ideas. What do you think? It seems stretchy enough although there is a point where there's no more give. I'm hoping that it will give enough for the recipient, because if it doesn't, I'm not sure how I would fix it. Plus, I like the way it looks.

This photo is a gratuitous showoff of the sock and my camera. I really like the way the colorway works with this stitch pattern, and I'm really impressed with the close-up quality that my camera provides. All in all, I'm very happy with the sock. I just wonder when (if) the other one will be started and/or completed.

Last, but not least, an object lesson for Halloween:
Good Pumpkin.

Better Pumpkin. (Now please excuse me while I mop up the drool on my keyboard.)

P.S. (or P.B. as my brother would say) Never fear, dear Brenda. I have obeyed orders and gifts #4 & #5 are safe and sound. For now.

*These may or may not be direct quotations from the notecard. I'll never tell.

Happy Dappy Smappy Nappy

Okay, so the name of the blog is Drunken Monkey Knits. I promise I'll knit this weekend, and show it to you next week, okay? Please stop complaining that all I ever do is sew. I enjoy sewing, it's truly another fiber craft, and I'm allowed to do it if I wanna. It's ridiculous that you want me to narrow my sights so much that I'm not even allowed to branch out from the needles now and then. Sheesh. For real.

Please excuse my ranting. If you look at the comments, no one has complained about the sewing projects. In fact, some people actually like the sewing projects. Apparently there are voices inside my head that seem to think I'm not knitting enough lately. Talk about ridiculous.

Hi. My name is Brooke, and I'm addicted to this nappy bag. Hi, Brooke. Two down, at least two more in the plans. Here's the latest one, started in class, finished Thursday night.

This is the outside, with nothing inside but the inside of the outside.

This is the inside, right-side out, with nothing outside (inside?) but the inside of the inside.

This is the outside, with the inside on the inside, and all finished.

If you were trapped head-first inside this bag, this is what you would see. (Disclaimer: No animals or people were trapped head-first inside this bag during the making of this post.)

This is an over-the-shoulder, over-the-shoulder photo. Impressed?

Here's a close-up of the cell phone pocket. The cell phone goes inside the outside pocket.

I actually did do some knitting yesterday. I worked on my Lorna's Laces Liberty Elann socks from this post. And last night after I finished the bag and took pictures and danced the dance of nappy victory, I wanted to cast on for something new. But I didn't! I worked on a square of brown eyelash for a bunny. I've been working on this square for a ridiculously long time. I'm just no good at knitting squares. They bore me to tears. Anyway, no new projects. At least not until this weekend.

I Love, I Love, I Love My...

Your mission, should you choose to accept it:

1. Go

2. Click on the calendar picture.

3. Click "View Calendar Pages"

4. Click "Feb"

5. Ooh & Aah

That's right, boys and girls. The
Tychus pattern is Miss February for Knitty's 2006 calendar. I'm thinking I'll need to order at least one, if for nothing more than to find out who knit the hat and what yarn she used. The colors? Love 'em. And it may just be me, but it looks velvety. I want to touch it.

Oh, and... this message isn't going to self destruct. If it does, please contact
Blogger immediately. Don't mention my name. They will have never heard of me.

In nappy news, Class Part II went well. I was only at the store until 10:00pm this time. I was able to finish the outside of the bag, and I was able to finish the inside of the bag. All that remains is sewing the parts together, pulling it inside out, and finishing it off. I should be able to accomplish that tonight, which means pictures for you tomorrow.

Carrot and Krusty both slept with me last night. Carrot has slept with me before, but only on rare occasions, and she typically sleeps down at the foot of the bed. Last night she slept right up by my pillow. Krusty has never slept with me before (as far as I can remember), and last night she kept trying to sleep ON my pillow. I think she got frustrated by the consistent "next to" vs. "on top of" lecture, and only stayed about half the night. Carrot was next to my pillow when I woke up this morning.

No new knitting now, nappies needed nurturing.

For today, I leave you with these trees near where I work. It has been an extraordinarily beautiful autumn. No wonder this is my favorite month.

Never before have I had the opportunity to be responsible for a living being throughout its entire life cycle. On May 14, 2001, four little balls of fur came into my world, and around 1:15am on October 25, 2005, one of those little furballs left it. Zorro, we already miss you.

Who could have guessed that a long-haired orange-stripy momma and a short-haired gray-stripy dad could have such a varied bunch of kittens? So named for the black patch across her little calico face, Zorro was never much for swordplay or saving Southern California, but she did enjoy some of the finer things.

Drinking water out of the bathroom faucet, making daring jumps from any height, cuddling with her sisters and momma, getting drunk on catnip, and helping with yarn control were just a few.

My mom always said that if she had been permitted to have one of the four kittens (never mind what Dad would say, it’s Midget who would have had the problem), she would have chosen Zorro, only Mom would have called her Phantom instead.
But Zorro has been Grandpa’s girl from the very beginning.

Once I tried to write everyone’s name on the refrigerator with those little plastic magnet letters. Even with two sets, by the time I got to Zorro’s name, all the R’s had been used, and the closest look-a-likes left were some B’s. From then on, Zobbo was an oft-used nickname.

When we lived in the house in Northern Kentucky, Zorro loved going outside to play in the fenced-in yard. She loved to run around chasing butterflies and moths, sniff all the fun things in the garden, lounge on the deck, and jump from the deck to the grass to chase her sisters and Sam.

Tuesday, Zorro joined her dad and her adopted little brother in that big catnip patch in the sky. Rest well, little Zobbo. You will forever be missed.


On a happier note, some good things have happened in the last couple of days. First, I promised you a sock.

But I can do better than that. See? The kids socks for my class are DONE!!! I can take them in Wednesday night for display when I go in for the second half of my nappy bag class.

Speaking of the nappy bag class, does it amuse anyone else that I've already finished making one? It's totally killing me not to show you, because it is WICKED cool. I'm eager to show you the one I'll make Wednesday night, though I'm quite sure it won't get finished Wednesday night. I'm going to do a couple of things pre-class, but not too much. And the first one took a few hours on two different nights, so... we'll see.

Monday's mail rocked! I got birthday present #1 from Brenda: a black long-sleeved t-shirt with gray skulls on it! Happy Halloween! I also got
this. I love love love this shawl. Now all I have to do is find just the right yarn. Any suggestions?

Oh, and for those of you in the know, the other girls are doing just fine. Their current favorite cuddle spot is in the corner of the living room between the piano and the DVD shelf. They're both looking for attention and extra food. Maybe it's just me, but it helps to indulge them, especially right now. This is the first time in four and a half years that I've had less than three kitties.

Knitting Party

I'd like to introduce you to two brand new knitters.

This is Devona. She's not only a brand new knitter, but she hosted the knitting party Friday night. We had a record number in attendance (7!), plus a baby and two very fiber-friendly young ladies. Devona finally got tired of me telling her I didn't have time to make ponchos for her girls and decided to take the needles into her own hands. Devona had been working on her knit stitches for a while and doing quite well when she asked for someone to teach her the diamond stitch. The practiced knitters in the room looked at one another somewhat confused until one of us ventured, "Do you mean the purl stitch?" We all giggled as Devona confessed, "I like diamonds better than pearls."

This is Jessica. Jessica didn't even know she was coming to the party, let alone that she was going to learn to knit. However, despite the yarn issues (thin/thick, boucle-ey), Jessica was quite successful with both knitting and purling. Impressively, Jessica thinks knitting takes less concentration than beading, and she doesn't have to lay out a plan beforehand. Ha... just wait until you start designing lace, Jess.

These two you may remember from an earlier post. Kim (left), who poses for candid photos, and Leslie, who is seen working on her first pair of baby bootees. I love it when people branch out past scarves.

Here's Erin and Ben. Erin knits, Ben not-so-much. Erin didn't knit at the knitting party, but my job is to come up with some more assignments for her so she can get more practice for the next knitting party. Ben mainly sat around and did his job of looking adorable. He's really good at it.

Kate doesn't knit (yet). She came for the food, the hot office gossip, and the knitters' ambiance. She hopes to learn to knit through observation. It shouldn't be too much longer before we can get needles into her hands.

I was the seventh in attendance. I finished the first child's sock (picture tomorrow) and worked on my dad's shoulder sweater. I worked two rows of my Mango Moon Cozy and then flubbed the next row, tinked back, and put it away. I also gave away mondo amounts of yarn. Two ladies from work had given me yarn they didn't have use for, so I added that to some of my stash that I didn't want/need anymore, and gave over half of it away at the party. The rest will probably go on ebay.

Yesterday I cut out fabric for my nappy bag class, plus cut out fabric for another nappy bag, and started sewing the second nappy bag last night. I should finish it tonight, but no pictures, since it's a present for someone who reads the blog. I have plans for a third one, though, and I can show pictures of the class bag and the third bag whenever they are finished. It's a fun pattern. Lots of pieces to cut out, and three yards of lining fabric is really about 3 inches too short. C'est la vie.

Lastly, please keep this little one in your thoughts. She's been getting sicker since last week, and this morning she was not doing well. I'll be taking her to the vet this afternoon, and I'll let you know what I find out.

Ready To Change

My mom gave me a gift card to Barnes & Noble while I was home for my birthday. The gift card had been a present to my dad last year some time, but, as Mom mentioned, he'll likely never use it. The gift card had a total value of $5. Five dollars is five dollars, and I determined to use it well.

Gift cards can be used online, so I trundled off to the B&N website to see what I could see. I knew I wanted to get Neil Gaiman's latest, Anansi Boys, a follow-up to his modern mythology American Gods. Neil Gaiman has been a favorite ever since I listened to Neverwhere on tape in my car and proceeded to lose track of time and completely miss all my turns.

I put Anansi Boys in my cart and went to check out. But, wait! If I buy just $6.14 more of eligible items, I'll get free shipping! Oh, hey... twist my arm.

So I added Flush, by Carl Hiaasen. This summer I read Hoot and promptly recommended it to my mom to use with her standard English classes this year. It won the Newbury Honor Award in 2003.

Now I had enough to get my free shipping and I could still use my gift card and all was right with the world. Why am I telling you this? Because the package arrived today. It actually "arrived" on Monday, but since I wasn't at my apartment to sign for it, (Of course I wasn't home! It was the middle of the day! This constantly boggles me.) I had to fill out a delivery change request and the package came to work today. This makes me incredibly happy.


Last night I had my first sewing class at
my yarn store. The Nappy Bag pattern I talked about yesterday includes a changing pad and case, which I had decided I wasn't going to make since, again, not pregnant, don't need one. However, that's the part of the pattern that was being made last night, so I relented. The class started at 6:30. I had gotten there early to choose and buy my fabric (for the bag... I brought fabric from home for the changing pad if I decided to make one), then started my cutting around 6:30. The other members of the class got there late, had to choose and buy their fabric, and they were all together... a group of four or five ladies from the same neighborhood (including Lori, the co-owner of the store). They didn't get started cutting until late.

Long story short, I was the only one who finished the pad/case, and I was there until 11:30pm. Lori and one other lady stayed also, and they got pretty close to finished. Let me reiterate: I'm really glad I decided to make this part of the project. Check this out:

This is the top of the pad (it's quilted!) and the case is along the left.

Here's the pad rolled up and tied (bottom) and the case on top.

And here's the pad rolled up inside the case, ready to stick in the bottom of the nappy bag that I haven't made yet. Cool, eh? The class itself was great fun; I enjoyed learning how to use a different and newer sewing machine, and I learned a few techniques to use on my quilting and sewing projects at home. Next Wednesday ought to be fun, and we're all wondering if we'll be meeting the following Wednesday as well.

I'll be making the bag itself out of completely different and unmatching fabric, and I'll probably use it as a project bag. I'll wait to show you the fabric until after the bag is complete, but it's bright and fun and I'm excited about it. I've been thinking about another fabric I have at home and about making another bag with it. We'll see how the first one goes.

Next big excitement? Friday night is the biggest knitting party yet. There are about 10 people from work getting together for a potluck and knitting party. Approximately half of them don't knit, but I plan to rectify that by the time the party is over. I'll be sure to take pictures and give you the scoop after the party.

Fun game, no? Just type in "{your name} needs" in Google and see what you come up with. Give me a shout out in the comments as to your favorite things that I need and if you get any funny ones with your name.

You know, this whole work thing really cuts into my knitting time. I didn't get a chance to knit much last night since I had a late meeting, but I did work on my class sock for about an inch on the foot. I'm not as ga-ga about the colors as some other people, but I have to admit it's growing on me. I actually liked it much better in the hank... I'm not really sure what I expected it to look like when it was knitted up.

No pictures today. It's funny, now that I have a media card for my camera (thank you, eBay), and have the capability to store hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of pictures, I can't seem to find anything to take pictures of. Strange, I know.

Tonight I'm taking a sewing class at my yarn store. I'm really excited! The pattern is for an
Amy Butler Nappy Bag, but don't freak out. I'm not pregnant. The bag is such that it would make a wicked cool knitting bag (lots of pockets and compartments) or a nice carry-on bag for traveling. Then someday down the road if I need to use it for its intended purpose, I can. I'm looking forward to picking out some fabrics tonight before the class.

My Dear Brenda,

My Dear Brenda,
There is absolutely nothing wrong with your (and my!) beloved contintental (long-tail) cast on. In fact, ever since you taught me how to cast on this way, it is very rare that I use another kind of cast on. Occasionally in the middle of a piece if I have to cast on at the beginning of a row, I'll use the backward loop method. Don't misread me! I love my long-tail!

However, Saturday at the store, Nicole was talking about different ways to cast on, and she mentioned that she didn't like the long-tail method. She doesn't like how you have to measure the yarn first in order to avoid having too much or too little yarn to cast on with. (I told her, of course, that the delight is in the mystery! If you don't measure, sometimes you have the joy of casting on two or three times before you have the right amount of yarn! What fun!) She mentioned that she prefers the knitted cast on, where you can leave a short tail and don't have to measure. She also thinks it creates a neater cast on edge. provides us with the following. (Click the link for the whole scoop.)

Here is a picture of a long-tail (continental) cast on edge. Beautiful.

Here is a picture of a knitted-on cast on edge. I must confess, I prefer the look of the long-tail cast on. The difference is indeed subtle.

And in lieu of this subtle difference, I must confess that I favor the long-tail method. It is wicked fast to do. The knitted cast on is not. The long-tail method not only leaves you with a nice edge, but it also gives you your first knitted row. The knitted cast on does not. The long-tail method has numerous names. (Continental being one, double cast on being another.) The knitted cast on is simply the knitted cast on. I would cast my vote for the long-tail.

So you see, my dear Brenda, that all I meant by my list yesterday was that I was reintroduced to the knitted cast on, not that I prefer it. And as I am willing to tolerate much craziness (*cough*crochet*cough*), I cannot deny Nicole her preference for the knitted cast on.

I am glad you like the yarn for my shawl, my dear Brenda. I cannot wait for you to see it and touch it in person. You will be so proud! I am eagerly anticipating my birthday packages, and I think you should keep an eye out for the postman as well!

Until next time, knit with confidence and style!

Yours with pointy sticks and a cherry on top,
Brooke T.

Under the Mango Moon

Things I did at the yarn store on Saturday:

1. Put store sticker labels on yarn labels.
2. Put yarn away on shelves.
3. Took the yarn tour.
4. Played with the three year old daughter of one of the owners.
5. Pulled the earflap hat (from hell) class from the books.
6. Signed up for a nappy bag sewing class.
7. Looked for fabric for said nappy bag.
8. Entered names from the guest book into the store database.
9. Ran the cash register.
10. Slid a credit card receipt under the cash drawer instead of into it.
11. Helped customers choose yarn.
12. Helped one customer choose $210 (!!) worth of yarn.
13. Was reintroduced to the knitted cast on.
14. Was rebuked for favoring the long-tail cast on.
15. Signed up for a knitted gansey class.
16. Helped cut fabric for customers and quilts.
17. Showed off my double pointed needle holder.
18. Was completely out of dress code.
19. Bought two skeins of Mango Moon recycled rayon.
20. Bought the book
Knit One, Kill Two.
21. Found the cutest
Holiday Knits book.
22. Worked on my child's sock for my class.
23. Drooled over some Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn in autumn colors.
24. Learned how to use a swift and ball winder.
25. Saw a lady I know from my other job.
26. Poured out the coffee no one drank.
27. Made a fresh pot.
28. Poured out the coffee no one drank.
29. Changed the paper towels in the bathroom.
30. Got entered into the store's database with a 20% discount.

That's mostly it. If I think of any more, I'll add them later. It was a really good day, though. Some of the day I felt like I was in the way, but some of the day I felt really useful. I'm sure the more I work, the more useful I'll feel.

Here's a close up of the Mango Moon recycled rayon that I bought. I'll be making
this with it. I've started it, but I'll wait until I have more progress before I show you. I'll certainly need more than two skeins, but I'll be purchasing a skein or two at a time because of the cost. Plus, I'm making this for me, so it's not as high on the priority list.

There's a meeting October 30th to talk about classes for winter. I'll probably be teaching another sock, maybe something with a lace pattern or just a lace technique class, and we'll try the earflap hat again. That way I'll be able to finish it and get it displayed in the store. One of the owners would like me to have a sock club on every other Saturday or so, teaching basic sock techniques and then progressing to more complicated sock patterns and having people come in for help with their socks. The new newsletter should be out on December 1.

Sunday I turned the heel and finished the gusset on sock #1 for my class. The heel is my favorite part of making socks. There's a special satisfaction in it. Plus, it means the sock is at least halfway done. Yup. Heels are cool.

15 Minutes, Part 2

Part 2

So the other part of my 15 minutes of fame is that I had a knitting pattern published back in June. Lots of people that read this blog already know that. (Not that there's lots of people that read this, but you know what I mean.) Anyway, this was very exciting for me. It was the first pattern that I had come up with on my own, and it was the first pattern that I had published. I had no idea what the ramifications would be, though.

I've gotten tons of emails from people all over the world who like my hat and who have questions about my hat and who want to use my hat for various things. From knitting it in baby sizes to selling them to benefit charities to wanting to use pictures in a different magazine, everyone that I hear from has been very, very positive.

Since some people had mentioned pictures of their hats on their blogs, I went and Googled 'tychus knit' to see if there were any others out there. There were! I found a ton of variations on the pattern, beautiful colors, different sizes, different stripe widths, new edgings... an amazing amount of creativity based on one simple pattern. In fact, I only found one negative review. I promptly forgot it. (Not really, but she's entitled to her opinion, right? Cranky snob. Okay, I don't mean it. No grudges.)

So the best part about the whole thing? Well, other than the thrill of seeing my name in print and the copyright, I was contacted early in the summer by a yarn store that was opening nearby and wanted to know if I was interested in being involved. No hesitations here... I went to a couple different planning meetings, signed up to teach classes, and I'm even working in the shop about once a month.

The store is called Yarns & Fabrications. It's in the sidebar (the website isn't much yet, but more will be coming soon, I'm certain), and I've mentioned it at least a couple times on the blog already. The owners, Joy and Lori, are wonderful people with a great vision. All of the instructors I've met so far are amazingly talented people with a lot to offer. There are a bunch of quilting and knitting classes planned for this quarter and I can't wait to take some myself! The people who work in the store are very knowledgeable and kind. I'm so excited to be a part of this store!

This past Tuesday (October 11) I had my first class. It was a class on how to knit Tychus, and I had two wonderful ladies show up to learn the hat. One had been knitting for a long time but short rows had always eluded her. The other had just recently learned to knit and was ready for something beyond scarves. I had a great night. I love the little tag they put on the hat for people to take the class. If I'd get the other samples done for my other classes, they'd probably make cute tags for them, too.

Anyway, I get to work in the store tomorrow, and I have plans for some purchases as well. I have to support my habit, er, the store, you know. I'll show you what I got on Monday.


Last but certainly not least, hi Brenda!!! Get your blog up soon, please!!!

Sobe's 10th Anniversary

(Part 2 tomorrow. Busy today. Drink Sobe.)

For a while there, I was a big Sobe drinker. I had at least one every day. I tried all the different flavors. Anthony and I saved the caps for a long time, and then sold them for seven bucks on eBay. Then Sobe stopped making some of my favorite flavors (orange carrot & strawberry carrot specifically) and now we don't drink Sobe as often. Sure, now and then nothing beats a Green Tea, and I try to try the new flavors if I see them, but Sobe is now not much more than an occasional luxury.

In honor of Sobe's decaversary, I provide you with the following:
