Is that CUTE or what!!
Well done! 馃尲

You have done a terrific job! ...But I see that you don't care to knit. Don't know if you're interested ...... but I have read and heard over and over again that crochet is far more conducive to making toys than knitting. I'm a crocheter and love making toys ... as well as hats & scarves etc...

It鈥檚 amazing knitting, especially from someone who doesn鈥檛 enjoy it. (I do think the button eyes should be positioned a bit lower.)

It鈥檚 so cute and I do like very much the little and colorful cardigan. Your grandson is going to give him many hugs.

Your chimp is absolutely adorable! You did a terrific job on the detailed wardrobe. What we do for a special person causes us to reach horizons we normally would not pursue.
You may want to ask your grandson to send you a photo of what he and his new friend are doing occasionally because you are missing them both so much!

I love to knit鈥 am obsessed! Just not a toy knitter. I can also crochet but I don鈥檛 think I will enjoy making toys any more with crochet. Just really like to knit what I can wear!!
