Nightmare Monkey

I call this the Nightmare Monkey, because this project was definitely a lesson in patience!  I was not sure if I had read the pattern correctly until the last bit of stuffing went in, and was relieved that he actually looked like a monkey!  Add in the fact that I chose some really difficult wool to work with (the colours are beautiful, but the yarn kept breaking off mid-stitch) and I was tempted to abandon this project many times.  However, the end result ended up being pretty good, and my eighteen year old son has claimed his as his own.  So I guess the nightmare was worthwhile in the long run!

Oh your Nightmare Sock Monkey turned out great! Love the colors that you used to make him. Love the Pumpkin Hat too.
I added a doll to my blog if you would like to see her please leave a comment if you can .
Thanks and hugs
