Sock Monkey Finger Puppet pattern

It’s been a wildly busy summer, as my daughter and daughter-in-law and I have been doing a TON of maker’s faires and craft shows.

I have built and re-built, and re-built again, my booth…. and now I am happy with it.

I’ve been working my chops off, producing new and delicious things for the booth, and my designer mode has been in overdrive.

One of the things that has become very clear to me this summer, is how much I love designing and making finger puppets:

One of the lovely serendipitous things that came together for me was when I was thinking about my grandmother and her pleasure in making sock monkeys- she made hundreds of them throughout my childhood, and I loved helping her with them- and then twigging that I should design Sock Monkey Finger Puppets in homage to her.

It has taken a lot of figuring, tweaking, refining and crochet, crochet, crochet to get to the place that is just right with them.

And, now  that I have got the pattern all polished up, and edited and in a very happy place, I have put it up on my etsy shop: LINK

Because they are so little, they are great for using up bits of precious yarn like handspun or even silk.

And, you don’t have to stick with browns:

They make me smile…. and I hope that you will enjoy them, too! 😀
