I came across a couple of my I-Phone pics and was reminded of something I forgot to post. I fell into this project by accident really. It came about since I was stuck on my couch for a few day due to an allergic reaction I had had to some antibiotics I was given for a UTI (sorry if that is TMI for any of you). Anyway, I couldn't walk around because the symptoms that I had were muscle and tendon damage in my right quad muscle. The muscle couldn't hold my weight and my leg would buckle if I tried to walk across the room. So... to avoid excessive hopping and dangerous balancing acts I was grounded to my couch to heal up. My friend Kara even came over and babysat me since she knew all too well that I was not one to sit still for long on my own. Thanks Kara!
So the sock monkeys were born!
I found the argyle crew length socks on clearance at Target and thought they would make some cute companions. I found the pattern to make them on Pinterest. (Gotta love Pinterest!!) I made 3 total. One monkey I sent to my prego sister (Who finds out what she's having today!) And the blue one went to a friend and is sitting in their car dash. The purple one has been adopted by Emma and she likes to take it for our rides in the car. I love how they turned out and they were really very easy to make once you knew what you were doing.
Dan and Brittany met in college and fell in love very quickly. They dated for a bit and were engaged 4 months later. And just 4 months after that were married in the Boise, Idaho Temple. They've been together 6 years and have eternity to look forward to. The twosome Glenn's are now a fun loving, busy family of FIVE! They love being outside when they can and are good with making something wonderful out of nothing at all.
