as much fun as...
Well, it's not a whole barrel of monkeys, but two are definitely more fun than one! I knit these two as a commission. A sweet lady contacted me, and wanted two monkeys as a gift for her fiancé, because they both love monkeys. How could I resist?
Their bodies are knit from a suri alpaca and wool yarn I just started using. It's so fuzzy and soft I want to try knitting all kinds of animals from it. I dyed the yarn for their outfits, not realizing how difficult it could be to get a bright, intense red. Now that they're finished, I like this slightly faded red much better.
