I've been trying to finish knitting my Christmas socks. Yes, I know I'm late. I'm determined not to be late for next year. I want to be wearing them next Christmas, not knitting them.
But... last week I found this monkey on a blog I look at from time to time - and I couldn't resist. By Thursday night, I had a monkey and by Friday night, he had overalls.
His name is Bob - named by Pal at the Cook Shack on Saturday morning. We were talking about names for him, she thought for a minute and said, "Bob." I think it suits him.
One thing I love about Bob is that he's very poseable. The trick is to not put too much stuffing in his arms and legs.
Monkey overalls have to accommodate the tail...
I definitely see more monkeys in my future.
(I have 11 months to finish my Christmas stockings.)
