Funky Monkey

     Hello out there!  I hope everyone had a great holiday season and are enjoying the new year so far.  I had a great time visiting with friends and family.  I think that may be the best part of the holidays for me!
     So I've been a busy girl crossing items off of my w.i.p. list.  I haven't been so great at sharing everything :o(  But I will catch up!  My latest item to fly off the hook is a sock monkey hat for my oldest daughter.  I was browsing on Ravelry (what a surprise)  and found this cute pattern.  It works up quickly and you can add so many personal touches to make each one as unique as the lucky girl or boy you will be giving it to.

        I opted to go with a pink monkey for my daughter.  She absolutely LOVES it.  And nothing feels better than when someone truly appreciates the work and thought that goes in to creating a gift made especially for them.  I posted this on Facebook and I am getting so much wonderful feedback from friends and family, so thank you if you're reading.  I always enjoy the confidence boost lol.
        The pattern can be purchased through Ravelry .  If you're not on Ravelry, what are you waiting for??? But seriously, here is a link for you, Sock Monkey Hat .  The pattern is very well written and includes many sizes and even an optional flower for a pretty finishing touch.  Well I'm off to enjoy my day off making another hat for my youngest daughter! 

Thanks for looking, and happy hooking!
