As of last night, the monkey that I'm making for a friend as part of a wedding present is now missing just one arm and one ear. The main body and head are all done and stuffed, and the legs are attached. Also, one arm and one ear have been knitted, sewn up and are ready to sew on when their respective pairs are finished. So, I am determined to try and bring him to a state of completion this weekend.
For motivation, I'm finding it very helpful to prop him up in front of me in his current state - a monkey with no arms or ears is a mighty folorn sight to see, I tells ya. As you can see:
My other monkey is an even sorrier sight:
"who said that?"
I promise to give him some eyes soon. And, you know, limbs.
