All three blankets and hats done!  Now I will finish YDD's stuffed orange monkey, and try booties later this week (maybe)

A cloth monkey, not a crocheted one, though I have a friend who crochets animals.   The monkey is a (very) late birthday present for YDD.

Modeling the monkey lol.  Not the greatest thing I've made, but that's the pattern she picked, and she loves it :)

These patterns were in a little junk shop in our downtown area, $3 for the entire set, including a circus tent pattern.  The only problem I have is that they are not incredibly durable patterns, so I have to adapt them-this is the first time I made the monkey, I need to enlarge it and add to the pattern I think next time.  I would like to use these patterns as a base, and eventually have a full "zoo" for the girls-they get to pick a stuffed animal or other handmade item each year for their birthdays.  Next year ODD wants a crocheted blanket, YDD hasn't told me what she wants yet.  I have until December :)

I would say total probably four to six hours each.  I usually did it ten minutes at a time anytime I took a break at work or after the girls went to bed.  The little hats took twenty to thirty minutes each.  I have a bootie pattern I am trying and it takes about twenty minutes fir each bootie, so less than an hour for a pair.

I miss crocheting, it was so relaxing other than the sheer panic of losing count, LOL.
