Jeb the Sock Monkey

Hello everyone!
Meet Jeb!
He is a rather large crocheted sock monkey for my sister Jessica's birthday gift. It was quite an undertaking since I rather procrastinated how long it would really take me to make. I actually ended up down to the wire on this one, and ran out of yarn to make the tail, so technically Jeb is an ape. However Jessica claims him to be a monkey so he is!
I am rather happy with him and although I started out with a pattern I ended up just winging it because the pattern made me rather angry...but that's okay since I like the way he turned out anyways! :D The 'J' on his chest was supposed to be for Jessica's initial but as soon as she saw it she said "Jeb!!!" and thus he was named. :)
Have a wonderful Monday,
