Monkeying around!!

I decided years and years ago that I wanted to try some Amigurumi but I'd never quite got round to it!!! A few weeks ago I found this pattern on the internet and fell in love with it!!!

I thought it might be a bit ambitious for a first 'go' at this type of crochet and I was sort of right. Ambitious it was but I'm VERY glad I took it on as I learned a lot. A great BIG lot!!! Thanks to the designer who is Sharon Ojala it was a relatively easy one to make. I liked the videos she linked to too. 

Now I think I know who will like this monkey and next week MAY see it leaving chez nous!!!!!!

Ah, I enjoyed my amigurumi experience too. Love the monkey's big ears!

He's so cute! I'm always interested in looking, but I haven't really had the desire to try it out. I'm sure I'd have multiple requests from my grandchildren if I ever got started with it.

You might have to make an extra two or three for your visitors! I've abandoned toy making, I can knit - or crochet - the pieces well enough, but never manage to assemble them recognisably!

He's adorable!! I too like his BIG ears :)
It's something I've always wanted to try too.. I even bought a pattern a few years ago.... But alas, it sits as I've not mustered up the courage to give it a go yet... :(

It's not 'rocket science' and this pattern has particularly good instructions with linkable videos too. I'd never done anything like it before. Be brave, young lady, be very brave!
