View Full Version : FO: Monkey Love!

02-19-2008, 03:40 AM
So. I have a dear friend who's helped me out greatly in the past. He also happens to have a thing for sock monkeys - of the sewn Red Heel variety. Little does he know that the lil' feller below's heading his way soon, as a big thank you! from me. Hopefully he'll play nice with all the other sock monkeys Tim has ;)

BTW, pattern's from YvonneKnits at etsy.com.

That monkey is just so darn cute. I'm sure your friend will be thrilled with his new addition! You really did a wonderful job!

Thanks, Mary Ann - from what his wife tells me, he'll appreciate it b/c it's handmade! BTW, are you f/Newfoundland (hence "Newfygirl")?

:inlove: Oooh, it's so cute! He'll LOVE it.

Oh gracious, Nuknitter!!! You have serious talent and this is a FANTASTIC monkey! :thumbsup: :cheering: :yay: :yay: :yay:

SO cute!!!! He is a handsome fella and has so much more personality than a cut-up sock. I hope all the other monkeys won't be too jealous.

Hi, nuknitter - no, I am not from Newfoundland -my dog is a Newfoundland - hence, "Newfy". He is 140 lbs. of big, hairy love! My dad calls him our horse.
Thanks for asking, though.

I went to ETSY and ordered the monkey pattern (and a couple others). It says the pattern is in PDF format. Does that mean that sooon I will receive an email with the pdf file?

:yay: how cute!!

GinnyG~yep you should get an e-mail with the pattern...sometimes that can take a day or 2...I think most ask that you give them 48hrs to send it to you.

He is so cute!

He is so cute...x

Thank you everyone, for the props ;) And dustinac for the :heart: on Ravelry! Y'all are all too sweet :muah:

Yup, GinnyG, just like dustinac says, give the designer a day or two - it's sometimes a real live person who's behind the transaction, not always an automated computerized deal.

Now. Next is Elijah the elephant, by Ysolda, for my friends' soon-to-be-adopted new son!

Aww, he is adorable! How long did it take to make him? I'd love to make one for my grandson, but then I would have to make one for my granddaughter:zombie:, but if it doesn't take too long maybe I could get it done...
