A monkey with no legs is still a monkey.

[no title]

My mom's been in town visiting this past week. She's been a production line machine of knit teddy bears for she's making to give to an orphanage in I don't remember where...somewhere far from Canada, anyway. During her visit, I picked up the book she's using and tackled this monkey.

Lacking patience for the many small knitted parts and immense sewing requirements, this guy's legless, and may live in this tea cup for a while. Made with remnants of the super-deal Rowan Wool Cotton I found last year. 

Time to go outside, the snow's finally melting.

Hey, I love the idea of a teacup-dwelling legless monkey! I think he's adorable just as he is.

i think you should leave him legless! a parapallegic (sp?) monkey is more unique anyway...

he fits better in his teacup-boat that way too

He's adorable! What book was the pattern in if you don't mind me asking?

I just love this monkey! I'll have to get this book and knit a few. It's just adorable, even without legs!
