Nicole showed me her sock monkey and I knew I had to knit one. The pattern is free on ravelry, if you haven't joined ravelry yet you should check it out.
I changed the pattern slightly, I just added three extra rows as my son always has a large coffee. He chose the buttons, he thought the worn down edges looked like the whites of the eyes.
I found this pattern for a Christmas ball using left over sock yarn at Garnstudio
I was told it looked more like a hackey sack until I put the loop for hanging on, maybe next one I'll put some beads on it
Gloves from Holli Yeoh's pattern, these were knit by Doreen.
Quick and Easy Earflap Hat, one of our free patterns using Punta Yarn Meritwist 100% Merino Wool. The wool is so soft.
The Easy Scarf (another free pattern). I wasn't planning on knitting this scarf but the yarn did not want to be the scarf I had planned to knit. This is a very easy pattern with stocking stitch panels to show off the colours of the yarn which is Punta Mericash hand painted. A blend of merino and cashmere which, according to the label, is a sport weight but my opinion is that it is more like a four ply fingering.
