No. 13 ..... unlucky for some


...... but lucky for one monkey fan. As long as they like their monkeys knitted. And pink. (Very pink.)


In yet another blatant rip-off of another blogger whose talents I admire and who is also holding a "Give that photo a name" competition today, I'm holding my very own "caption that knitted monkey photo contest"!

And yeah, so what if the Pioneer Woman had 1472 entries when she was giving away her super-duper SLR digital camera ..... she's never tried giving away a knitted monkey, has she?? I reckon I'm going to whoop her arse! be left feeling slightly sheepish.

Hurrah! I did it! With huge thanks to trek for teaching me how to do the deleting words thingy-me-bob. It took me literally hours moments to figure out her formula (maths) because I'm really thick quick, but now I've learnt the technique I'm going to bore people rigid with it use it sensibly.

Anyway, in order to enter my competition, you simply have to look at this photo ......



And give it a caption. And the caption I like the best wins. End of.


As lots of people are on holiday at the moment I'm giving it two whole weeks before I choose the winner (plus I may need that long to garner responses!) and you can enter as many times as you like. On this post only please (I'll link to it daily).

There's just one rule.

1. You do actually have to come back to see if you've won - mentioning no names, but MYRA, you still haven't claimed your exclusive knitted monkey back-pack. I'm giving you one more chance but heck, he's beginning to get that complex back again!


So. If you or anyone you know loves knitted monkeys and loves pink and would especially love the two combined together then get your thinking caps on and start captioning.

"Ok, you can have one but only if you stop eating the beetroot"

RooKnits said...

My bf wrote a little poem rather than a caption...
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Panthers are pink
And so are you

Your arms are so long
Your wool is so pink
My rose it smells lovely
The other bloke's stink

Your eyes are so goggly
So pink is your hue
I bring you this rose
To say "I love you!"

Frances said...

"I got out of my basket for this???"
or,
"Oi, no one can eat just one."

Jenn said...

these are too funny! you must have a great time reading all the responses! I think she is saying:
what? pink isn't the new black?

and, just so you know, you are my son's favorite blog. He is crazy for monkeys!

Crafty librarian said...

something simple and sweet, like no. 13.

Roses are pink
Monkeys are too
Please say you'll be mine
Or I'll be so blue

paper-and-string said...

Oh no! Even knitted monkeys have testosterone battles!

Marissa said...

"Come swing in my tree, baby! Yeah, baby, yeah!"

(Sorry, but Monkeys who hail from the UK all sound like Austin Powers to me)

PS - thanks for your note on my blog! I have started my very own monkey using a hybrid of the two patterns and my own ingenuity. Knit on DPNS...we'll see how it goes! Thanks!! Perhaps a knitted monkey will help me find love! :-)

sal said...

middle monkee: "such beautiful pinkness deserves the most most beautiful bloom" Pink monkee: "yeh whatever, give me quantity any day!"

Can I enter more than once? this was straight off the top of my head but I may come up with a better one - and I soooo want a pink monkee!

A rose? Haven't you got any muffins? (from Roo - slightly stealing his idea)

Zoebert said...

"That's nice Deary, but don't you have something more my shade?"

Karen said...

I can't be bought with roses, raspberry and white chocolate muffins are however entirely another matter.

shandyshouse said...

What do you mean,you dont like pink?

Frances said...

"Are you happy to see me or is that a pink rose you're holding???"

OR

No. 13 had no idea she was going away until she stumbled into her surprise going away party!

Nia said...

"Hmmmmm... Not quite the right shade of pink, but it'll do"

Nia said...

The florist had almost sold out of roses by the time 007 got there...

Nia said...

No.11 regretted buying such a huge bouquet of roses when he discovered No.13 had hayfever

Nia said...

Despite being way less generous with gifts, 007 always got the girl!

CanadianKiwi said...

This was the last rose left, he bought all the rest ... Is that fair??

Victoria said...

The monkeys had second thoughts about taking this one home: they were inclusive but not that inclusive.

Victoria said...

The monkeys gazed in awe at the lastest development from the monkey lab and wondered at the genius of their creator.

Victoria said...

The monkeys had stumbled across the future and they were not entirely sure pink was their colour.

Can't think of anymore!

Zoebert said...

"...And one for You, my Pretty!"

Bea said...

"Don't mind him, you can have MY rose, Pinky!"

Love your, monkeys by the way!! ;)

Donna said...

Monkey holding rose--come with me darling, we shall run away to the south of France where I have a romantic weekend planned--sun, champagne, chocolates...
Pink monkey--are we going to throw poo?
monkey holding rose--well of course we're going to throw poo!

Hey Pinky,Pull my finger!

Pink monkey-Why has your friend got some Ivy growing out of his head?

Martha in Kansas said...

It's me running up your counter! I keep coming back to look at the picture and thinking of new captions. Can't decide which is "best", so will send them all.

* Blush rose
* One of a kind
* Behind every good monkey is... another monkey.
* Monkey love
* Awkward moments in dating: #614
* Some monkeys are more socially adept than others.

And, imagining 007 is the suave monkey he seems to be,
* "Hope they'll allow a rose on the plane."
* "Would this convince you to stay, my dear?"

Rubyred said...

007-Welcome to the Monkey House!

shandyshouse said...

No it won't make you sneeze......it's plastic.

sal said...

"oooh I'm torn - quality or quantity?"

007:Flowers for sale get your flowers! 59p each!

pink monkey:I'm sorry pink does not suit me.

Anonymous said...

dya think she'll let us out of here if I give her these flowers?

Anonymous said...

This decision is tough...but one package is so much bigger than the other!

Anonymous said...

'No. 13 I've looked through all the roses in that bunch. And this one seems to be your colour.'

sal said...

" I don't even like flowers! I'd just like to go and live in sal's house as she's got loads of pink things!"

okay getting a bit desperate for a pink monkee now!!

trek said...

A pink rose for the lovely pink lady, er, monkee.

007 sings (to the tune of Daisy Daisy)

'Rosie, rosie, give me your answer do,
Im half crazy over a chimp like you.
I'll give you a a monkey marriage,
But I can't afford THOSE flowers.
You look so pink, I'll tip you the wink,
And we'll leg it away from this dude'

:o)

"Hello Miss Pink. This rose signifies but one drop in the ocean compared to the great abundance of roses and bananas my brother here, Mr Grey can offer you. Please excuse him, for he is a little shy but wants you to know that he will never give up and will swing through a 1000 trees if it means winning your pink heart ".
