I must must must think of another name for this sweater, named because it was inspired by a sock monkey.
Mine is different, of course, since the yarn is a charcoal/cream marl, not a light brown/cream marl that is typical of the sock monkey. I really like it...one sleeve is almost done, then all that is left is putting in the sleeves and doing a button band.
We're still busy, it is still raining, and no, I'm not watching the Olympics nonstop nor am I participating in any knitting Olympic type activities. I select my sheepiness very carefully when it comes to the knitting world!
