Monkey Business

Vi's granddaughter Carol had her first communion. So of course, to celebrate this momentous occasion, Vi had to knit a striped stuffed monkey wearing a crocheted bikini!

It is the Monkey pattern from this Reynolds Kids Book knit out of various scraps Vi had on hand.

Carol loved her monkey! She asked Vi if she had made it or bought it. When she found out that her grandmother had knitted it by hand, Carol said, "Oh good!"
She's named the monkey Suzanne. Huh. I don't know if Suzanne should be honored or not.


The Mayor of the Knit Nook said...

Suzanne is perfect ! In fact, both Suzanne's I know are perfect !

You did a wonderful job Vi.

I am so glad that Carol loves her.
