Monkey Madness!

What does one do when one's little grand niece (10 years old and cute as a bug) messages you on facebook and requests a sock monkey, a blue sock monkey?

You got it!


I bet you knew the answer!  Yes, you sit down a knit up a monkey.  I'm calling him Mookey.


I can't believe how cute he turned out.  I didn't have a pattern, just made him up.  I knit him up on a circular needle.  When I do another, I will probably start at his feet and work up so the legs and body will all be one piece.  

 Either way, he is cute.  I wish I were him!  Laid back, no worries, and irresistible, can you imagine going through life like that???

I can't!  LOL!

I wanted to share some fall decorations with everyone, but the batteries in my camera died right after I got these pictures taken.  

I am still working on my to do list, only it keeps getting longer.  Now I have an afghan to make, and I found this little doll I want to crochet.  It is called the Tilda Doll.  This gal is from the Netherlands and she had the pattern on her blog, she was even kind enough to send me the instructions in English.  I have been following her blog because of her crochet.  I am not sure which I will begin next.  Maybe both??

I am off for now.  Just took a baked spaghetti out of the oven.  New recipe from Taste of Home...hope it turns out!

Peace

Dawn
