Meet Herman!

This is Herman the Sock Monkey and made from two red heel socks like the ones in this post. I followed the instructions included with the socks and making him really wasn't difficult. I liked that the outcome and character of the monkey are all the time a bit of a surprise. Every little detail can influence the personality of the monkey like what kind of eyes you choose or how its mouth is going to look like. It is also a nice way of venturing into the new territory of making stuffies.

What is all this monkey business going on here? I agree that every decision on the face has to be made carefully because the personality of the monkey will change with each stitch. I once made a rabbit and it's nose dictated wether it looked cute or snobbish, young or old. Hope you still have a few warm days left. Carolina
