Knitted Sock Monkey

Finally, a picture of my first knitted sock monkey! I have always wanted a sock monkey. Recently I found a pattern for a knitted sock monkey (no destroying a perfectly good pair of socks!). Oddball Sock MonkeyI decided my first one was going to be strictly for myself and the colors were to go with our master bedroom theme turquoise and brown. I think I might make some clothing for him... looks too nekked.

I have just started on another one, using light brown for feet, hands, bum and face; reddish brown for body and head and then I think he is going to have a blue or blue and green t-shirt and hat to match. We'll see.... stay tuned! These are too much fun to make!!

A day of sledding!

We all took today off and just did something fun (after the hospital visit - I needed an MRI). We had to be there early, I am not allowed to drive, so we had to take Charlie with. Then there was another dr's appt. in the early afternoon.
Once that was all taken care of, we decided to go sledding. The first time for Charlie and he loved it.
During the ride, I brought along a knitting project. I found a really cute pattern for a sockless sock monkey and made one for myself in brown and turquoise. This one is going to be light brown and reddish brown with a blue t-shirt and hat. The pattern is actually quite easy and so adorable...once I get the eyes and nose embroidered on mine, I will get some pix up.
OTN - funky leftover socks for afore mentioned Dental Assistant, slipper socks for the three of us, second sock monkey.
