Sock Monkey Photo Shoot

{ADORABLE} Squared

I had to share the most adorable pictures from my sock monkey hat photo shoot!!!  Baby Rylan is so stinkin' adorable I can't stand it!

Also had to include the monkey hat I'm working on finishing the pattern for:

And my panda hat:

I know the bucket might be a little repetative, but I think the photos came out super cute.  All items are listed on etsy!  If you're interested, check them out on my shop.

New Pattern

A little {monkeying} around has been going on at my house.  No, I'm not just talking about my kids getting into everything.  (What else is new?)  I have been trying to find some time to write up a few more of my patterns, and the first few will be my Mommy's Little Monkey hat:

And this new little guy:

Mind you, he doesn't have ears in this picture, but he will have the same ears as the other monkey hat.  Isn't he adorable??  This little guy is going to be a gift for my daughter's kindergarten teacher who is going out on maternity leave next week.  I was writing down the pattern as I went, and now just need to make it purdy.  Oh, and do a photo shoot!  :)  Anyone want to let me borrow their baby??  Wish my babies were teeny so I had live-in models.  (Okay, maybe not, but that would be convenient.)

That's about all that is going on with Monkey Shine for now...other than working on filling orders!  Thanks for stopping by!
P.S.  I have made two trips to the yarn store in one week...and now have a stash of organic cotton yarn...color grid to follow!!

Baby Shower {Giveaway}

Hello everyone, and welcome to Monkey Shine Designs!  I am super excited to be a part of the fabulous Baby Shower Giveaway over on The Oxford Family blog!  I have been very inspired by Scotti, and am so happy I found her shop on Etsy.

For my "gift" for the "baby shower," I am giving away not one, but two 0-3 months sized Pumpkin Beanies!  I created this pattern myself, and think it's adorable for fall.  It looks great in photos, too!

Super cute, right??  The pattern is also available on my shop on Etsy if you're a fellow hooker and would like to make one yourself!

I have many more cute things for your little monkeys at my shop on Etsy, Monkey Shine Designs.

Like my cute little owl hat!

And this adorable Teddy Bear Ear Flap Beanie!

You can also find me on Facebook!

Good luck, everyone!
