Sock Monkey

I finally finished this sock monkey late last night.  It feels like I have been working on him forever.  He started out as a present for Cece's newest baby cousin, but I decided he was so big that he needed to stay with us.  He is as tall as Cece.  Ellie quickly claimed him and snuggles him every night in her bed.  I revisited the instructions on the blog to see where I went wrong, because it didn't seem like he should be so big.  I realized that I had not printed off the top portion of the instructions, but had in my head that I was supposed to use a 3.25 mm hook.  The instructions call for a 2.5 mm hook and baby weight yarn (I used worsted weight).  He turned out much bigger than he was supposed to.
