stitching saturday: monkey time again
Well, I did it again, I made another monkey. This little guy has been in the works for a few weeks - I like to rotate my projects so I don't get too bored. They come together the fastest at the end - because when you see a pile of monkey parts it's hard not to want to put them immediately together.
And yes, looking at them side by side, I can appreciate just how wonky my first monkey is. They were knit with the same yarns, on the same needles (the mouths and ears and feet are different colors) - but tiny details like the placement of the ears, eyes, and how much you stuff the body and the mouth make a huge difference. I don't care, I love my wonky monkey anyway - he has a certain charm. Let's just say he's like the James Cagney of knitted monkeys.
But the new monkey is pretty adorable, I just have to say:
Naturally, after all this picture taking, the monkeys were pretty beat...
Hope you like my new monkey! :)
