Putting a brave face on Mr Frustration

This monkey is turning out bigger than he was supposed to be:

He’s made of cotton – which I decided I really like to crochet with, after making this cupcake. (The case is made of cotton, the cake itself is wool / acrylic)

I made this wee chap all in cotton to see what it was like:

And decided I really liked it, so started making a more socklike monkey – he was supposed to be little too… but for some reason, I wasn’t really concentrating, and he’s pretty much the same size as one I made in wool a while back.

For quite a while, I wasn’t sure if i was going to finish him, but actually, but he was just a tube shape at the time – now he has a face. How can you not finish something that has a face? Poor fella.
