When my kids saw the Itty Bitty Toys book by Susan B Anderson, they immediately asked for a knitted toy. Well here it is, my first knitted project and first time using (dpns) double pointed needles. I have to admit, dpns are not as difficult as I thought.
One of my twins, (Lorenzo) loves monkeys. I mean he has a zoo in his room and he even sleeps with a big cozy monkey.
Knitting toys is not only a great use of your stash (think of sock yarn leftovers) but also a cute gift. The details of the yarn I used and needle are in my ravelry project page. Look at that happy face with his new friend Jojo!
