A Tribute To The Sock Monkey

I had a request for help with a Sock Monkey cloth. I don't know if this is exactly what she was looking for but this would be my little tribute to the sock monkey. If you were looking for the full body...I'm so sorry. I just did this one really quick and I hope it helps. I didn't have an appropriate color for him so I just changed the color of the photo afterwards to give him more of a sock monkey like color. lol So, here's another little freebie for ya...hope you enjoy him. :)

Omg, I was just getting ready to come over here and tell you my e-mail address (perfectneurotic at yahoo dot com) because gmail sometimes flushes them and then I found this. Thank you SO much. I am just flabbergasted and so happy and amazed. I'll be knitting these suckers all day long. Thank you, thank you, and thank you! It's brilliant!

This was perfect timing. I was on Ravelry today looking for more sock monkey projects.
I finished four hats and was looking for new patterns, but still wanted the monkey theme. I did not want to commit to the punk rock backpack pattern or a stuffed monkey so this was perfect.
I had some light brown cotton yarn and did the dishcloth today. The directions were easy to follow and it looks cute. Thanks.

Happy New Year!!!
