She was actually very interested in how we knit a monkey! This great little kit has terrific instructions and the little guy is knit flat with 100% wool yarn. You then seam him up, stuff him lightly and then as the middle picture shows, you run some non-felting yarn thru him to keep the stuffing in place and then throw him in hot water in the washing machine. This is when the problem occurred! Annie was having fun playing with him while I knit his arms and tail but did not want him put in the hot water! So we waited....
He felted up really cute, but I do need to still give him some eyes and a nose!
It was a fun evening project and now I'm thinking I need to make the lion, the kitty and the bears!
Happy Knitting! Alison
