"This is a great idea if you find a sock sale and the colors appeal to you. Many toys can be made and stuffed from socks, much faster than knitting them and then you can knit squares or hats in the time saved. :) Really cute monkey!"
"I agree. I love how the Gogos do so much and want to do even more to help the children and getting paid that stipend also helps them. Everyone wins and us, oceans away, are so grateful for all the dedicated hands and "boots on the ground"…"
"Lovely work Johanna and nice bold blocks of colors, great for the boys to appreciate. Looks like you did these squares in garter stitch which is thicker and warmer than stockinette stitch. Very well done! Hard to pick a favorite...maybe that…"
"I agree, gorgeous bright sunny colors and perfect for hats. Very well done. However, they do remind me of Candy Corn and now I wish I had some, lol. :) Sigh...but seriously they're lovely, Patricia! Well done! "
"Awwww, but perfect for little hands to hold and cuddle. So cute! I might add here to newbies, these sewn on or embroidered eyes are perfect for toys, the kids can't remove them like they can button eyes or stick on googly eyes so…"
I tried to send you a message but the kas email did not work. I will try at the library computer in the next few days. Now it is raining buckets here and basements are flooding! I am working on the blue scarf from the lovely yarn you sent me. Also a hat for kas. Hope you are well. Blessings!
Hello Jeanne, When i used to do this knitting in my younger:)) days I tried to make a rug but it used to curl up and no way would it stay flat. Years later as of now I thought scarf for teddies and I really enjoy doing it:))
