So instead, I made another monkey



Because I was sad and Kokopuff (the brown monkey) needed a friend, I crocheted a second monkey (who magically turned out much larger for some reason). He's kind of sock-monkeyesque in a deliberate homage to the sock monkeys of the 1970s that my Grandma made with my sister and me one sweet Saturday afternoon back in the day.

Cozy memories and a cozy little monkey.

You do what you have to do, right?

And the shiraz worked wonders too, in case you were curious.

So... Did I miss something or was there discussion of you setting up a website for us to buy these things? Because I think I need to buy some stuff from you!

Do you charge GST?

Love the name for Koko. Can we call the larger one Ghandi? I'm not sure why, but that name popped into my head for some reason.

i dig your monkeys. i so remember the sock monkeys we made back in the day. where did you get the pattern? are they crocheted or knitted? i don't know how to crochet yet. i am feeling a animal-making stage of knitting coming on.

sorry about the failed second attempt. what a total and complete pisser. that royally sucks.
