He is finally finished! And just before Mr. Foster jumps into a box to be wrapped and stored in the closet until Christmas, I wanted to share him with you.
I have mentioned how hard this monkey was - but the truth is, I loved every stitch I knitted in this guy. It was by far the most challenging project I have ever knitted and I learned a ton. His pajama's have a million mistakes in them, the most notable being that the button placket is supposed to be in the front. Don't ask me how mine ended up in the back - that is a total mystery to me! I considered ripping it all out and starting over again. But then I realized these pj's are going to be worn by a stuffed monkey for Pete's sake! Get over it! So I did. And I'm betting that the little recipient of this stuffed toy (a little mister you might have heard me talk about a time or two) will never notice the difference.
If you think you might want to tackle this project you can order right here. And you totally should because it is a fun project. Knit Picks has a knit-along support group that was a lot of help to me. You can also find many Mr. Foster projects on Ravelry as well.
So now I am on to Miss Ava Claire's Christmas present - a bunny wearing a dress. It's already proving to be a much easier project.
