Happy Birthday To Me!!! :)


This is the new Monkey at 16 inches in length.  The pattern was for a 2 1/2 inch Monkey, I managed to make it 16 inches!


Here are all three of the Monkeys so you can see the difference in size just using double yarn and the same size hook can do!!


Here are the two original Monkeys together.  Nanny and Puah!  Walt wants to try to find some accessories for them, LOL.

Hey Ya'll,

Just a real quick post to say that it is my 55th Birthday today!!!  Yes, I know, now I really am an OLD LADY!!  LOL. 

My Nieces son, Charlie's Birthday is on Thursday of this week, and next week is my Granddaughter Emily's, 7th Birthday on Thursday.  Not to mention my Cousin Della's 52nd (?) Birthday next Wednesday!! 

Well I finished Walker's Monkey.  I actually gave the one that I originally made to Walt as he wanted two, so I made a second one in a different color and gave them to him.  I then made another one for Walker as I wanted it to be larger still.  So I used double yarn which enlarged it significantly.  The original Monkeys are about 12 inches long and the new one is 16 inches!!  Just by using double yarn and the same hook.  Photos above.

Well, I better go for now, I need to get to bed.  Till next time...

Aloha My Friends  :)
