I all started with this. As soon as Lena saw what I was working on she insisted it was exactingly what she had always needed.
It soon progressed to this.
Here is how she looked just a little bit ago. She now has her ears but I will haven't finished the tail. You can now tell that is is a sock monkey. When I saw this knit from KnitPicks I knew that had to knit it even thought I didn't know what I would do with it.
Seeing Carmen progress Lena decided that she wanted to make a sock monkey as a birthday gift for her friend. So, to the internet I went to find the proper sock to make a monkey out of.
We sewed him together yesterday evening. Much faster than knitting one!
This afternoon he got his heart.
His super hip vest that Lena made a designed her self.
Lena decided that he also needed a jaunty little scarf to complete the ensemble. Actually, she wanted to add pants, but I told her. "Don't be silly sock monkeys don't wear pants." I may have just wanted to be done with the project;)
I have a feeling that this blog is not done with monkeys yet!
