With winter slowly getting colder over here I thought Ruby might need a new beanie. I love sock monkey's and decided to make a crocheted sock monkey beanie. We are turning into quite the little girl and pink was requested, luckily I had found the same moda vera wool I use from Spotlight in an op shop for 50c a ball. Bargain, so I used some of the left over wool from the crocheted blanket and some of the cheap balls I found. It worked out to cost maybe $1.50 to make this.
We pose all the time now for photo's, I used the pattern I found from Repeat Crafter Me, and just changed the colours around.
I may have added a couple of extra rows of increasing as we are a family of slightly larger heads, sad but true.
I then decided to make a little one for the baby, I didn't make the ear flaps on or use button's for the eyes as it's for a baby. I made the new born size but thought it was a bit too small so I made the next size up.
Ruby holding the babies one, we love Angelina Ballerina in our house. Well I say "we" meaning mainly Ruby. She's very hard to find in Australia, lucky for English Grandparents, this Angelina is very well loved.
