And the surprise project is....

Knitty's Monkey Hat!



Pattern: Sock Monkey Hat by Sheryl Lange (on knitty.com)
Done is size M
Materials Used: Kraemer Summit Hill superwash wool - worsted weight - two strands held together throughout.
Colors: Topaz, Pearl, Ruby (I used left over black yarn for the eyes and nose)
notes: I started the small for Colin and realized it was too small. I did the medium and it barely fits. However, I used substitute yarn and I did not check gauge so that's what happens. I'd knit the large for a toddler if I was doing it all over again with this yarn. The yarn the pattern calls for is no longer available.

Too cute! How did I overlook this pattern? Good thing you kept it a secret, Colin just wouldn't have been able to keep it to himself ;D

Oh I love it - and Colin looks wonderful in it! So glad those yarns worked! You do great work!
