Take one ordinary pair of socks .......


....... and turn them into something fabulous. I can't do that, as this demonstrates .......

Dennis, the scary sock monkey menace

But I know someone who can. After browsing through her photos on flickr recently, I clicked onto kittypinkstars Etsy shop and DAMN that pesky Paypal!! It's all his fault! Yeah sure, he pretends he's your mate and then he makes it really easy for you to buy stuff! Although in this case I'll let him off, because on Friday this very exciting-looking package arrived .......

We were all intrigued


Inside it were these beautifully bound up packages ......


The monkeys made the newbie go and poke it, while they stood (sat) well back ......


And then all was revealed .......


Why, it's Super Sweetie Sock Creature!! (and a couple of free strawberry hair slides that No. 9 had already grabbed!)

There was a bit of a stand-off (sit-off) while everyone measured up each other .......



Until Super Sweetie SC offered up a goodwill gesture ........



Which the monkeys fell for .........

Pile on!!!



Monkeys are dum. And they smell. I'm off to bagsy the best slot on the sofa!

After untangling themselves, No. 10 thought (s)he'd (we're not really sure what No. 10, is but I'm thinking female. RBD1 disagrees) like some of that fur taming hair slide action ........



So they decided to share ........

Bless!


So Super Sweetie SC assumed her position on the sofa, between her two new bessie mates .......

Get off me. And give me my sweetie back.

Welcome to the asylum Super Sweetie Sock Creature. I'm sure you'll be very happy. Mwah ha ha ha ha!! (Note to Kitty : Please don't worry about your sock creature, she's in safe hands. It's only knitted monkey abuse we go in for in this house, honest!)

Great photo stories Monkee Maker! Your blog always makes me smile.

I'm glad No. 11 enjoyed the camping (mostly) - I hope everyone else had fun too.

I started knitting a monkey at the weekend, in defiance of t'Other Half's 'no more monkeys' ruling. Suspicions were aroused at the wool shop ("why are you buying wool in monkey colours?"), but now that knitting has commenced I'm hoping that I might just get away with it...

looks like super sweetie is going to settle in just fine, I bet she won't stand for any monkeying around behind her back!

vicious chicken, what do you mean? Your other half went into a wool shop? With you?? RGH and I need to have words. Good luck with the you-know-what.
