The best kind of business is monkey business:
And so it goes with my love of sock monkeys. This Paton's pattern book, Monkey Business: Knit or Crochet has the cutest patterns; I bought it for the basic sock monkey pattern but the baby monkey (pictured in the top frame above) is pretty adorable too. There's a reggae monkey ("Bob") with dreads, a punk rock monkey ("Sid") with a mohawk, tattoo and "piercing" - and so many more cute ones, including non-monkeys as well. I think I'm going to have to knit one soon.
I also blogged at simplyjanet.com yesterday.
