Officially, here’s the picture of the day.
Enough of that! What I really want to share is this guy:
I’ve called him “Scotty” after Scotty McCreery on American Idol. I was so caught up in Scotty’s performance that I made the tail much longer than necessary. And hey… The ears stick out like Scotty McCreery’s too!
I used Rebecca Danger’s Jerry the Musical Monkey pattern. As with all Rebecca Danger’s pattern, this one was brilliantly written with lots of pictures. However, I veered off the path a bit. I stuffed the feet before knitting all of the legs, which to me made sense. (Imagine my surprise when I found that the pattern didn’t give that insruction!) I also used larger eyes than specified. I love the wide-eyed crazy look!
I can’t wait to take this guy out and take pictures in the sunlight. He’s such a cutie!
He’s also going to Fiber Fest with me. I don’t know if Ann Hanson will mind him crashing her class, but we’re going to try!
