Steve Built A Monkey & Other Birthday Gifts

I built this monkey for my good friend Little Lily. Now that she is 2 we can't call her Baby Lily any more. I used the Baby Spider Monkey pattern in World of Knitted Toys by Kath Dalmeny. Thanks to Fannie for introducing us to this fantastic book!

I tried to make it less Spider Monkey & more like Curious George. So I added eyebrows, shortened the legs & left the tail off. The yarn is Palette from Knit Picks.

Here is the birthday girl with her new monkey.

And here she is modeling the very girly dress that Kiki knit for her.

The dress is made from all kinds of fun yarns including Noro Lily.

Kiki also made beaded bracelets from her handspun yarn for a few of our other friends who also have birthdays around this time of year.

Our own Lily has a birthday right around the corner. I wonder if she'll get any hand-knits for her big day?

The monkey is so cute! It does look just like George. Kelli and I have been wanting that book ever since we saw the one Lily brought one night to knitting.

Oh my gosh, I want one of each! The monkey is adorable and the dress and bracelet are so girly and funky! You continue to amaze me.
