A sock monkey hat for Jack!

This is where all the sock monkey hats began! I made this one I saw in a magazine and so I made one for my little cousin Jack. He is such a cutie and I was so glad it fit his head. I have come to find out in making baby beanies their little heads vary in size no matter how many months or years old.

The Lion and the Lamb

I made this lion that I found the pattern for in a Crochet today magazine. It came out bigger then I expected but it came out right. My friends daughter liked it and asked can you make a lamb now? Obviously she is a Twilight fan. (who isn't?) So she gave me the idea to make a lamb. I just used the same instructions for the lions mane for the wool on the lamb. So here they are and I sold the set to her. This was all crocheted.

Sock Monkey leads to more...

OK so I started making sock monkey beanies. Then everyone liked them so I started making a whole bunch. Long story short I made one for my sons friend and he had a great idea for me to make the 4 characters from the Kia commercial which one is the sock monkey. He put the sock monkey beanie on his head rest of his new Scion and thought it looked cool so he asked if I would make the robot, bear, and cyclops guy too for the other three seats. So of course this is a challenge and I did it. I don't think I will do it again because I like to keep my stuff unique. So I guess he will be the only one with these head rest covers. He should feel so lucky! lol

My knitted Sack Boy.

I don't know why but I think this sack boy character is so cute. He is from the PS3
Little Big Planet game. I have made a few before but I had crocheted them and they were way smaller. You can see them here in a way earlier post. Back then I was scared to try it in knitting because I wasn't up to that level. So I finally got brave and made one. It was fun until I had to sew all his parts on. lol But I managed and I have thought about putting him on my etsy store but I want to hold on to him a little longer. I just made a baby beanie recently too and it was just the perfect little head for me to see how the beanie would look on a baby. It is a little too big for my Sack Boy but you can get the just of it anywhoo! I think I will make another but work with 2 pieces of yarn at the same time. Just to make it seem thicker and warmer.
