I believe it was my friend Katie who guessed I was making a monkey. Susan guessed it was a monster and she wouldn't be far off: he's a pattern from Rebecca Danger who *is* the "monster lady."
I had been planning to make this little guy as part of a set to send off to live with someone else, but then...it happened.
Danger! Danger! Someone seems to have fallen for the monkey.
"Mama! You no take my monkey!"
Well played, little girl, well played. It's OK, I wasn't feeling much like gift knitting anyway.
He's even started settling in and making friends.
