Ah, spider monkey!

Here is the photo of my nephew’s spider monkey as promised:

In order to get him done on time, I did not sew the four paws and twenty fingers or the face the way the pattern commanded me to. Instead, I went for more of a sock monkey look and am quite pleased with the outcome! It’s actually kind of liberating to make changes to a pattern. And I used Alpaca wool (instead of mohair), so he is nice and soft šŸ™‚

I’ve also heard tell that my nephew Jackson really likes the monkey and has named him Robot, which I think is a fabulous name!

(To see pictures of Jackson–and his new baby brother Owen–see his parents’ blog.)
