Just one more...

This one was for a customer. I just love how perfectly his hat fits him and had to show 'n tell. I freehanded the hat in sc and dc with (what else?) Red Heart Supersaver. I'll have to write out a pattern next time so I can recreate it.
I think I'm addicted.

Your monkies are really something - they look great :-)

When I was a little girl, (1) I was born, & (2) I was given a sock monkey by my older sister.
Yes, other than life itself, it was the first thing that was ever given to me.

His name was Cecil. (and really...sometimes Cecil was a boy, sometimes a girl...)

I slept with Cecil until I was 25 years old & our dog (read: My fiance, now husband, had this big oaf of a dog who thought all of my things were his) chewed him up. (I choose to say that Cecil was murdered.)

So...I have to say....My Cecil looked just like that with a red hat and all. You just don't ever know how much one person with love adore something when you make it & send it off....

The woman who made my sock monkey was named Cecil & was my grandmother's friend. I'm sure that as she made it, she had no idea that I would carry it off to sleepovers...carry it off to college...etc.

...oh, type-o. That should be "will love & adore"...not "with love adore".

I was typing fast. sorry.
