Three years ago I made a green fuzzy monkey that I really liked (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=317094.msg3651653#msg3651653) and I'd been meaning to remake it for ages. Getting hold of nice mohair yarn can be difficult, so I wanted to see what it would look like made with normal yarn as well, so I made four in different colours, two fuzzy ones and two smooth ones.

I called them Woolly Monkeys because, obviously, they're woolly, and because there is a real species of monkey called that. Mine are a bit more brightly coloured and have stripy tails though.













They've got big eyes and simple faces, which can make them look a little sad at times.

I hope you like them, but any comments are appreciated.
