Well I have got the arms on. They are on a little bit crooked. One is higher than the other. But you know it is folk art. It is a sock monkey. Okay it's not an, it’s not brain surgery so monkey surgery. So it's actually alright you know one is higher than the other. It's folk art. You know sock monkey is a form of American folk art. And I think if there is not a sock monkey in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York there should be. But any way at this point we are getting close to done. We are going to finish stuffing until he is about the right you know consistency. I like kind of a sort of a soft squishy sock monkey kind of like he is now. I could still put a lot of stuffing into this guy. One thing is if you over stuff something like this you will actually start to see the sock start to stretch out and you know even to the point to where you can start to see the stuffing in the inside of the sock monkey between the holes in the knit. So you really don't want to go that far with it. So I'm kind of at this point where I think I am ready to stuff the legs and so you I kind of have everything attached. You know the legs are still limp. I am going to go ahead and stuff them. But once I do that this project ought to take on a life of its own.
