Hello again Craftster! It's been awhile. Mostly I just forget to take pictures for you, sorry.

ANYWAYS! Like most of you, I'm in the middle of crafting projects for Christmas gifts, and I just finished this one for my brother. (Actually the third gift I've gotten him, he's so lucky!)

So he has this recent obsession with sock monkey, which I don't really get (I think they're kind of creepy)...
Not to mention nearly all the sock monkey hats sweeping the stores right now are child sized (as with most of the patterns). Managed to finally find one, though! (found here; http://coffeecupthoughts.wordpress.com/2010/03/16/some-happy-hooking/) Sooo glad I decided to crochet it instead of knit, I whipped this up in two days. Smiley

I used Vanna's Choice yarns, all doubled up (except for the red band where white meets brown), so it's extra thick. I think the mouth ended up being a little too big, though...

Photo time!

Aaaand obligatory adorkable shot of me wearing it;

Nicely done!  I like your sock monkey hat!  I'll bet your brother will too!   Cool
