Alane finished “Ernest J. Monkey” earlier this week. Is he a sock monkey? He’s not made of socks despite the look of the gray yarn. To get the tight weave needed, all yarns were doubled and knitted on a slightly smaller needle than the yarn suggested. 

He is seen here with his buddy Angus. The photo shoot ended badly. Bad Angus.

Ernest will be adopted by Alec, Alane’s grand-nephew, at Christmas time.
