Introducting MONKEY

I know, I know, I said I would be updating my blog more often now that I have the digital camera. I'm sorry, but I've been really busy with Christmas, family, etc. Speaking of Christmas, I got a bunch of awesome stuff this year! Knitting related items included a pack of sock yarn from my big sis (enough to make 3 pairs of socks) I've never knit socks before but I've been wanting to learn for a while now. I've started the first sock and it was going great until I got to the heel.....*^&$^&*&$&#*#%$#%&$*#!!!!!!! (perhaps I will post some pictures on my next entry and get some advice - something is definately wrong) I also received a pattern book for knitting toys. My mom, knowing me as well as she does, knew I would want to make the monkey first so she included the neccessary yarn for the project. (mom is so awesome) Yes, I am 23 years old and still love stuffed toys.....there's nothing wrong with that, is there? Once I started knitting "Monkey" (a better name for him in the future perhaps?) I couldn't stop until he was finished. I think he turned out pretty cute for my first attempt at knitting a monkey. What do you think?

I know you all think he is very cute but he's already been up to some monkey-trouble. First of all, he ate all the christmas chocolates I left on the coffee table. I bet you think I'm just blaming him - that it was actually me who ate them all but I have evidence.....

Then, he got into the cupboards and ate the cookies. (also wasn't me)

I couldn't get mad at him though.... I mean, look at that innocent little face...

I think Monkey is going to be a regular on my blog now..... he's pretty photogenic.

  • Too old for stuffed animals? Never. I'm 23 also and still like them. My mom is crazy about stuffed animals too. Always a kid at heart.

  • Monkey is so cute! Love your monkey tale, too... how fun!

    Which book was it that you found this pattern in? I have 3 little monkeys, and I'm thinking they might each need a little monkey of their own.

  • Wow! My monkey is far too well-mannered. I hope he doesn't get any ideas from your very cute monkey! I think there must be a community of monkeys out there. Someone from England stopped by my knitting blog trying to track down my monkey because of their own monkey. :-)

  • Oh, that is such a cute monkey and I love the story of all the trouble he was getting into. Gotta love those monkeys. (And I'm 50 and still love stuffed animals...)
