I sold 3 sock monkeys in the Charity auction

The first one I sold, and only the second one I ever made...
Poor Belinda ended up with this one.

so now I have a question for everyone.

I found a slightly different pattern when I made Colettes monkey.
Which arms do you like better the long skinny arms or the fuller arms?

I like the fuller arms - and I must say these are the cutest sock monkeys I have ever seen!

I like the longer arms. maybe as an added attempt you could put pipe cleaners down them so they are more poseable?

I haven't tried them, but is it possible to make the legs shorter and the body larger?

I like the fuller ones. They're not as scary when they are made with cute socks.

If you had a shorter sock the legs would be shorter.

Fuller

I also like the idea of the pipe cleaners so you can put them in poses. How fun.

I already got Naomi a sock monkey for Christmas and the hands have velcro on them so they stick together.

I love the proportions of Colettes, the length and diameter of the arms and legs. AND the colors!

The fuller arms. It looks more like the ones we had as kids.
