Thanks for the great feedback everyone!
i thought that monkey was copy righted...
Thanks for the feedback, macdoodle. In this case, "patent" would apply more than copyright and at one time there was in fact a patent on the sock monkey pattern. This is from a website detailing the history (http://www.cappers.com/Reader-Stories/After-more-than-50-years-it-remains-true-Folks-still-go-bananas-over-sock-monkeys.aspx?page=2):
"The Nelson Knitting Company no longer exists today, and their early knitting machines were either junked or donated to museums. The sock monkey doll patent has also long since expired. Anybody can create a sock monkey doll, and, in fact, the nation is going bananas over them."
good colors. really cute monkey!
