Although he is not sure what to think about the fact that there is a famous monkey also named George. He's not quite comfortable with the fact that when people hear his name they might think of the monkey first. So he's considering a name change, but he's unsure as of now.
Yarn: Patons Beehive Scotch
Color: Beige (the darker brown is the same yarn, but dyed with Wilton's Icing Dye)
Content: 100% wool
Care: hand wash and air-dry
Needles: US 000
Overall, George was fun and interesting to make. I love patterns that pick up stitches off of other pieces, instead of being sewn together. I just trust them much more with small children. I will be making a larger size of George for my nephew Garren with some worsted weight yarn.
Luckily for both me and the next George larger yarn and needles will be a blessing. Because trust me, little George is glad that he couldn't actually hear the things I muttered while trying to knit his little ears. They are cute and very much worth it when all is said and done, but during. . . lets just say that I seriously considered making him an ear-less Giraffe.
With the second one, I will be making a modification or two to the pattern, but we will talk about that when I get more into making him.
