Wool sock yarn
What was your inspiration?
Sock Monkeys!!!! I loved this pattern when I saw it. I made this for my niece when she was a baby. It was quite a challenge. The needles were small and the shape had to be stuffed as you went so it was kind of awkward.
What are you most proud of?
Finishing the knitted dress. Almost every round was an increase and took forever.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't give up. You might need to take occasional breaks to work on something with larger needles to give your hands a rest.
