the inspiration piece:
my childhood sock monkey, circa 1968. my grandmother made him for me. and as the story goes...my main past time as a child was to flush my sock monkey down the toilet, even still, he remains. and after I pulled him out of my hope chest last year, spencer made a special request- his own sock monkey. I was hesitant but encouraged by mark to knit it up for Christmas. I made the push, but just didn't finish. I think spencer would say he was worth the wait.
