FO Friday: Monkey & Destash Scarf

I've got two FO's to share this week! The first is my finished monkey for my newest nephew, Ethan:
The yarn is Green Mountain Spinnery's Wonderfully Woolly (now discontinued) in Turquoise and a little bit of Malabrigo Worsted in Pigeon. Once again, I used Rebecca Danger's excellent Jerry the Musical Monkey pattern.

I also bound off for my scrap yarn scarf last weekend and have been wearing it ever since! It's nice and soft and a good length; I used the Snippet Scarf pattern (available for free on Ravelry) as a guide, though I used smaller needles and cast on more stitches. Some of the yarns used are: Malabrigo Finito, Dream in Color Smooshy,The Uncommon Thread Heavenly Fingering, Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock, and The Fibre Company Canopy Fingering.

Celebrate FO Friday by checking out more posts over on the Tami's Amis blog!



Have a crafty weekend!

  1. I love your scrap scarf, it's brilliant! The monkey is cool also, I can see him being a childhood heirloom.

  2. I love scrappy scarves. I just can't do scrappy because I try to make it "match". LOL. Yours is so pretty.

  4. The monkey is awesome; especially his dangly legs :)
    Love the scrappy scarf. I did a similar looking linen stitch scarf in sock yarn scraps and it's still my favourite hand knit accessory :) Every bit of yarn had a story behind it!
