I made this about a month ago but couldn’t post it till now because it is a gift for some friends that are having a baby. I really loved having it around and am sure they will enjoy it just as much.

It is a monkey made with alpaca with embroidered accents. It is a pattern I adapted from a vintage pattern and I love the results. Yay monkey!

I found this dusty German knitting magazine from the late 70s. I would have bought it but I knew if I did I would be google translating all the patterns and would likely get distracted from other projects I should be finishing.

Anyways, I took a picture of one of the sock spreads. I love the ones in the middle and on the right. Hopefully it is a nice little bit of inspiration for you.

Flickr has this really good Vintage Knitting Pool that has a lot of nice images of vintage knitting patterns and objects.

Here is a sampling of what you will find there.
