A sock I won't be wearing...

My nephew's first birthday is this coming Saturday. Since I haven't met him yet...sniff, sniff, because he lives with his mama, my sister, over 3000 miles away, I wanted to do something really nice so he loves me to pieces when I do finally get to meet him this October. His mama is throwing a sock monkey themed birthday party and I offered to knit him his very own sock monkey. I hope he likes it.

Pattern: Sockless Sock Monkey by Anita M. Wheeless
Yarn: Berroco Comfort DK in Bittersweet, Barley and True Red
Needles: Knit Picks Nickel DPNs size 3
Mods: I would have purchased 2 balls of this yarn for the main color if I was to make this again. I ran out and had to add a bit more cream than the pattern called for on this tail and have to do some of the sewing with chocolate colored floss.

he's adorable. Did you name him? He needs a name, you must name him. Something funny.

-Btw, I was out all day, I'll give you a call in the morning, I'm about to start dinner. I'm sorry you got so sick. :(
