I used white and green at the request of the purchaser (my BIL who is a doctor - I think the colors are related to scrubs/white coat of a doctor, but I didn't ask: just a guess! *edit: nope, he just likes the color green... and monkeys*). I liked it in these colors, but the original dark green/light green was really nice. Its all done in worsted acrylic for machine washability, using a variety of brands, whatever seemed to be the right colors. You gotta love the hoodie - what a cute accessory!
I had a few issues with the pattern, but I think I realized something about it when I was done: I don't like using other people's patterns! I have "issues" with every pattern I use, it seems - maybe I'm the issue! I think I will keep my negative comments to myself from now on unless its a glaringly bad mistake that the author is not willing to correct.
This is what I hope will be done with the monkey when it reaches its intended little one... an ami just isn't worth anything if its not loved on!
Wow, clean toes! That's a rarity on my little one! Hehe, this is totally in here because I think its such a cute picture :)
