Not My Circus, Not My Monkeys

Have you heard the wonderful Polish saying, “Not my circus, not my monkeys.” A very expressive way of saying, “not my problem.”* An embrassingly long time ago, my friend Theresa was talking about it on Facebook, and I promised to make her a monkey. He’s finally done.

He is acid green to match Theresa’s hair at the time I started making him. His feet and hands are a lot more detailed than those on the first monkeys I made when I was learning.

Theresa has been having a pretty amazing year, working through a list of challenges, including having a different hair colour every month, making a stop motion animation film, and writing and releasing her own single. She also writes a lively blog about life lessons from her beagle Cooper, with supercute illustrations by Chantal Bourgonje. Visit The Barklife Way to take a look.

I hope Theresa and her new crochet friends get up to lots of monkey business together!

* Unfortunately, I can vouch for the fact that this doesn’t work when you are one of the monkeys.
