4kcbwday1 - 4th Annual Blogweek: House of Monkey - 4kcbwec

This is a Blog Week posting, Day 1 of 7


According to the Chinese Zodiac, I was born in the Year of the Monkey! 



I am intelligent highly intelligent with a fun loving side and even look the part!


Welcome to my blog! I am representing the House of the Monkey for Knitting and Crochet Blog Week 2013 hosted annually by Eskimimi Makes. I love to try my hand at different projects ranging from throws to place mats to HUGE ball seats/roly polys.  I am about to explore interesting fibers (not yarn) and last week tried my hand at home dyeing as well, kicking off this wonderful adventure dyeing yarn with black beans.  The House of the Monkey fits me to a T!



I hope you will enjoy this week with me. I am looking forward to meeting a whole new group of bloggers and to connecting with old friends. For me this week is all about the different perspectives and journeys as put forward by hookers and knitters from all over the world. I will represent each day's topics via a visual narrative rather than a written one.  Kick back, take a sip of coffee and enjoy my blog. Cheers!

    3. In PTA at the moment, but hoping to be back in the expat world soon. We were lucky to keep the kids in an Int school to ensure they remain on international standard. Off to check out the blog hop. PS I have been to your valley before when we went skiing in Combloux France and took a trip through Switzerland as well. Cheers!

  6. Going to be a fun week. You are the blooger who has not been a bee, perhaps we hare a little more variety in out yarn characters. Although my the bee definition seems to go far further than just yarn

    Have a great day

  12. The Chinese Zodiac is a great idea and a fitting coincidence that you were born in the Year of the Monkey. I have no idea which years were Monkey years and as a fellow member of the House of Monkey am now wondering whether that angle applies to my circumstance too.

    Love your fun photos.
