MONKEY MIKE is a product of Little Brother Cat's imagination, and came into being about 13 years ago when he was in first grade.  Little Brother made up this character and then wrote comics and drew cartoons to illustrate them.  

Now, Monkey Mike was a very special monkey, but we haven't seen or heard from him for a very long time, until yesterday!  

My interpretation of Monkey Mike

 Truth be told, this really isn't the original Monkey Mike.  This monkey was made by Momma Cat using a pattern she got off of another blog,  It was the Extra Large Monkey Pattern, whose name is Darcy.

I decided to make Mike with only one strand of yarn, and I also decided to make him solid blue except for his muzzle and the little circles around his eyes.  I also gave Mike a banana, and a bandanna.

Now Mike is ready to play!

Mike will be on display for the foreseeable future at Yarntastic Fiber Arts in Portland, Oregon.  Stop by and see the new shop and give Mike a little tickle.  He loves to be tickled.
