FO: Monkey See Monkey Do!!




I saw the monkey and knew what I had to do!!



One of my former students just had her first baby and now will have her first sock monkey. The pattern is HERE. I used Sirdar Snuggly DK and #1 needles. The directions are to knit flat and seam all the pieces (NOT!!) or knit tubes (YES!!). I took some black yarn and sewed on eyes instead of using buttons since it is for a newborn.


On to the next project ... I think it will be Haruni. I was given some beee-you-tee-ful periwinkle lace weight (we think) tencel silk blend by a dear friend.

Casting on tonight -
