Project

Seven Sock Monkeys

What are you most proud of? I love it that each monkey has its own personality. They were each made with the same pattern, but I used different colors, and spaced the eyes differently. Their clothing gave them distinct personalities. Each of my grandchildren and children went directly to the monkey they prefered. It was a very special moment. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun with it!

Your monkey's are adorable!!! What a great way to honor your grandmother. She would be very proud. Super knitting by you!!!!

Thank you so much! I wish I had video taped the expressions of my grandchildren when they each selected their preferred monkey. It was priceless! It would have brought happy tears to my grandmother's eyes.
