I was able to finish five sock monkey hats for the Halos of Hope January challenge. As noted in my previous post I like the crocheted version so much I created a knitted version (my first hat design). The hat part is sooo easy, but those ears! Not the ears themselves, those were easy enough. It was attaching them. I had the darnedest time keeping them straight when sewing them on. As much as I think the hat is adorable and I know some kids will love them (I'd so love to see a picture of a group of kids wearing them), I can't say I'm sorry to see the end of the challenge. I'm looking forward to making some pretty hats for February. Although there is this cute Dr. Seuss hat I might try, just can't help myself!
