Sock Monkey

A few girls in the family like sock monkeys and I thought I'd whip one up after Christmas.  I had some issues with the ears and duplicate stitching the face though, so he never got given and will go live in the box under my knitting machine.
He was made on the SK155 using Patons Decor.  The pattern (Lyndee Sock Monkey) called for Patons Classic Wool, but I didn't see any reason to use a handwash wool for a kids' toy!

I added some short rows to give him a bit of a sitting bum, but I don't think I did enough.
The totals were already included in my Yarn Out totals awhile ago.
