3 of 5 Sock Monkeys ~ Dr. Zira, Monkey King, and Boop

I love summer! It is so much easier to get good lighting outside. :) Here are my 3 latest sock monkeys.

First up – Dr. Zira from Planet of the Apes. Her ‘do’ was a challenge, but with the right yarn it came out nice.

Then came a character I’d never heard of – Sun Wukong or Son Goku or the Monkey King depending on your language. This was my first time using fur (I had hand-knit fur before for Chewy), I was very pleasently surprised with how well it worked.

Lastly, is a sock monkey similar to one I’ve already made. Here is Betty Boop! Really, I don’t think she is a monkey… more of a sock doll. :)

Iowa Hawkeye Sock Monkey Girl

I have wanted to make a girl counterpart to the Outdoor Monkey for a long time. (I secretly think of this monkey as like me, cause I love the outdoors. ;) )

I finally got an order for one so there was no more excuses! Here she is, and she is a fan of the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Monkey Made of Sockies Golf Club Cover

Another first for me- my first Golf Club Cover. A special order from our friend Shannon Grissom. She liked the idea of a golf club cover made in the likeness of her famous sock monkey

Pink Ballerina Girl

What little girl doesn’t like pink ballerinas? Well, some do, but I think the little todler this sock monkey is intended for likes pink ballerinas. :)
