:D Guess what I just ordered? ...
Mr. Foster! He is so stinking cute!!! We have a monkey thing in my family and he is just too perfect. He is a new kit from knitpicks - check him out here if you haven't already seen him.

Anyone planning to order/make him?

It is cute and I thought about buying the kit until I saw it's knit on size 1 and 2 needles. No thanks!

Wanda, he's really darling and I hope you'll post a picture when you get done with him!

I'm afraid I'm with Sue though. I saw those size 1 needles and thought, "I'll never finish him if I can't even finish a pair of socks with size 3 needles!"

He's cute and he crossed my mind, but not with those size needles.

What a wonderful project for you! I used to make sock monkeys from purchased mens' work socks, and fell in love with the monkeys. But it never occurred to me to actually knit the sock! I look forward to your progress reports.
