Why my house is a mess...


Someone help me!  I can't stop!  It started with my attempt to crochet a sock monkey hat... a staple for future Gishwhes endeavours.  Then all my kids wanted one, so I made them all one.  And I just kept going.  


I had a special request from a Gishwhes teammate for a "Link" inspired sock monkey hat.  I think this fits the bill.

 
Eight monkey hats later, I decided to try my hand at an Owl, inspired by my daughter's status as a new Brownie, and me, as Tawny Owl.   I'm VERY pleased with how this one turned out.  The directions were much smoother than the monkey hat and makes for a cleaner design.



 (That's her "Hey, don't take a picture of me," face)

Then, in honour of the birth of our new niece, Aylin, (a month ago, I really have to get her gift in the mail) and her big brother, Sullivan (Yup, they call him Sully, I couldn't resist), I tried my hands at these two.   I LOVE Mike Wazowski... I think I kind of want to make myself one!

Then, this morning I started on one for our brand-new nephew, Ozzy.  His parents met in Australia, got married in Australia... and I'm pretty sure he was conceived in Australia.  And yeah, his name is Ozzy.  So, really, this themed tuque is ALL THEIR FAULT!



 And this is why the groceries aren't bought, the laundry isn't done, and the tables are covered in crafting supplies.  I cannot stop!  I'm already itching to get back into the wool after supper.  What is wrong with me?  I'm a binge crafter with an addictive personality.

So... what do you think?  Viable side business?  Or should I just inundate my family with multiple tuques every year?  Cause there is only so many I can make more my kids.  Or.., is there?
