"Your task today is to either think of or research a project that embodies that house/animal. It could be a knitting or crochet pattern – either of the animal itself or something that makes you think of the qualities of that house.
Alternatively it could be a type or colour of yarn, or a single button. Whatever you choose, decide upon a project and blog about how and why it relates to your house/creature."

So the House of Monkey needs a mascot.
Here's Chester the Chimp.
I thought he should be a teeny tiny chimp. I'd use sock yarn to make him. His arms and legs will be i-Cord increasing at the bottom to create hands and feet. Chester has a stripy vest, which would probably work well made from self-striping sock yarn.
It might be tricky to do the detail on his face and his eyes will probably have to be made from felt.
He does have a bit of character, perhaps he should be called Cheeky Chester.
