The Sock Gibbon Cometh

So I saw this picture of a sock gibbon on Flickr and thought what a brillaint idea it was. It was made by Viv Schwarz, who has a flickr album full of monkeys

A sock monkey had been requested by Claire so three pairs of knee high stripey socks have been purchased for a tenner from Covent Garden market. I found these more comprehensive instructions on the web. I am trying to get my stripes organised. This is going to be great. I have a special pair of red and white ones for Ruby, so I am practising first on what I call my emo gibbon. I wish I could take the day off work to make it. The day I got them I had to work till midnight. How infuriating is that? Just when I have something cool to do.
