If you have been visiting for awhile now, you may remember that I have a couple of friends that are knocked-up.
They don’t know each other, but both really like sock monkeys.
I decided to skip making the blankies and go with what I knew they would enjoy – whether they have boys or girls.
I googled sock monkey hat patterns and found one for newborns.
Then, since that one was super small and I didn’t like the ears and it didn’t have a pompom on top,
I changed the ears and the mouth and the stitch and the count, did some frogging, re-worked that one…
and ended up making my own pattern for this second one.
I like the idea of displaying them on glass jars – that was a good one.
So, while my version is in no way original – I now have a pattern I like for sock monkey hats and I plan on making more. They are cute and quick.
Now, I am off to make matching booties for both. But first, to find a pattern I like on those too. Any suggestions? I must be too picky…I have been reading and searching and testing and frogging. I am just going to need to choose a pattern soon because I have only a few days till the first baby shower. Martha (my sista from another mista) and I have been crafting and plotting and planning. Sunday is the big day and we expect to make this shower a smashing success. I have an awesome diaper cake to show you with directions…
until next time…
Thanks for stopping by!
