4KCBWDAY2 Monkey Mascot

The first thing I thought as I read this was "but I don't want to make a monkey !" hehe.  I figured I'd find a pattern with Monkey in the name that I liked the look of, since this is pretty much how I choose all my projects and/or stash - anything that catches my eye, whether it be a colour, pattern or technique I like.  

The first pattern that immediately sprang to mind was Monkey socks by Cookie A.

 

They encompass everything I like in a pattern, not too plain, lace, gorgeous design.  Sadly though, whilst one of my current WIP's is a pair of socks, I don't actually wear socks and honestly don't think I'll knit (or finish, for that matter) a pair!!

But oooo, the same pattern converted to Fingerless Mitts by Michelle Johnson - yes please!  I adore fingerless mitts and am always on the lookout for more to make! 


These may not embrace the Monkey House by way of a new challenge or technique but they aren't a scary sock monkey knit so I'm happy!!
