“I’m not taking it off today”

I'm not taking it off today.

“I’m not taking it off today.” said Jesse after I gave him the hat I crocheted him the night before we saw HP5. It’s my favorite book and I’m glad the movie was as good as it was. It could have been better, of course, but that’s the trouble when really rich books become movies.

Too much fun with the tiny monkey!

Jesse is having way too much fun with the tiny monkey, and that’s just showing him off so I can take his photo after we finished the Monkey’s face. We had to replace the small googly eyes with slightly larger ones and added a nose and a mouth with brown yarn…

I love my tiny camo monkey!

And then things got REALLY silly with an extra googly eye that was too silly for the monkey’s face…

what's on my forehead?

I think I can see it now....

Argh! I have another eye!

Then, Jesse took the camera and got these shots (i’ve got the eye in my hand for the one of the two of us!)

After that, Brook wanted a picture of me and Jesse so one last shot before my little monkey had to head off to bed.

Still need to get some felt to make his face and ear insets. I forgot to buy it at Hobby Lobby yesterday when I was buying some Red Heart Super Saver and Polyfill to make some little crocheted guys. He’s much smaller than I thought he’d be. See the Apple logo on my MacBook for size.

I used (finally) one of my patterns from Roxycraft.com!
