These were a request. A friend of mine had one made by her grandmother and has an eager nephew trying to take possession of it. In hope to calm the storm, she requested a clone to be made and had another pair of socks that matched.
This was my first sock monkey attempt. I love him. I was amazed at how easy it was. I did hav a hang up with stitching on the stretch stitch position. My machine kept trying to eat the knitt.
I think I might make a few more, as I find some interesting socks.
