*lol*

OK... so it's really my test of KristieMN's gorgeous piggyback pals. This is the monkey. It is... HONEST!

He looks a lil pale... I had no brown so I used a linen colour. I think he looks sweet!! I even gave him pink eyes to make him an authentic albino ;) He was made with 4ply cotton so is much smaller than intended by Kristen. I made his arms shorter than her pattern called for due to the fact he wont fit on anyone's back!

Another great pattern from Kristie. Easy to understand and came together well.

it was 4ply cotton and a 3mm hook

and I learnt a good lesson! i currently have 2 brands of 4ply cotton. One is Panda Regal and the other is coats Semco Milford. He was made with the Coats one, and I went to do his face in the Panda white. Well... it turns out Panda is quite a bit thicker than the Coats!! Lucky I had Coats in white too or he could have been a UFO for a long time :D

He's super cute! Especially the one he's holding on to your arm. :P Is that a fruit tree? I see red things; are they apples? (I want an apple tree in my yard someday...)

Anyway really good job. :hook

Tina it's a native Australian tree, Bottlebrush. You can see more over at Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia....iki/Bottlebrush Very pretty in flower but very messy too!! I thought what more apt a place to photograph a monkey than in a tree :D I put him on my arm to show size. My 3.5yr ols daughter was looking at me like I was mad!! I guess I am :blush
