I HATE COMPETITIONS!!!!

Can you PLEASE remind me of that the next time I suggest having one?? They're too too stressful!


Anyway, before I announce the winners, here's another Halloween snap, taken a few years ago when the girls were much shorter than they are now ......




..... scary! And look - RGH in a monkey t-shirt!


So. Earlier today 007 and I assembled the names of the competition entrants and picked four six winners ......





I know, I know ..... but I had guilt that so many people had entered and I wanted everyone to win, but I could only stump up six prizes (without giving more stock away), and the last two aren't really very good, so the "winners" may not even want them.





Anyhoo, without further ado, the first name out of the bowl was .....




..... who wins the beer mitt





The next name picked was ......



..... who wins the banana bag





Then ......


...... is the winner of the set of cards





..... and .....


...... wins the pink monkee, HP5.




But then, I was on a roll and thought I'd just pick two more names, as I have two beer mitts - which were meant to go into my shop but I just can't get the monkee faces right, so I obviously can't sell them ..... and don't feel you have to claim them ......





..... who "wins" this ......







..... and ......





.....who "wins" this ......





So, if you ladies would like to claim your prizes, please email me at monkeemaker@yahoo.co.uk and I'll get them in the post to you as soon as possible.




And Viv? I really have guilt that you didn't win anything. I wanted you to, really I did! Mind you, I wanted everyone to win, which is why I HATE COMPETITIONS!!! (Did I mention that already?)


And did I mention that my monkee shop is opening today? Why don't you mooch on over and take a look? I hope it won't give you a headache ..... it's certainly given me one!


I'm off to run my wrists under cold running water .....

Oh. Never mind. It's just, as I said, the story of my life. Betcha there will be no clothes in my size and/or style in all of London from tomorrow, everyone at the knitters' group I'm going to visit tomorrow will hate me instantly and there will be nothing but fun fur/novelty yarns in all the yarn departments/wool shops in town.
Sometimes fate has a really sick sense of humour, I tell you.

And don't be daft about not wanting to claim it becasue it's 'not very good' - it looks really, really fab to me!

Wow how well has your shop done on it's first day?! I guess I'm gonna have to finish mine now, progress report: he now has 2 legs and I've stopped dropping and making stitches. Not bad considering how long ago I last knitted I guess.

Well done!!

Kae said...

Sorry, I just can't believe I actually won something and not just something but the most gorgeously Pink Monkee.
Thank you so much. That has made my week.
Can't wait for my own Monkee adventures to start :o)

You're too sweet...and generous (6 winners! Wow). But don't stress out; I really don't mind losing. :)

My Paper World said...

Wow! Just had a look at your shop!

lauren said...

many many many congrats on well deserved super-ness!!!

Carolyn said...

I took a look at your shop, it looks like it's going really well. Congratulations! I'll remember to go back if I ever need a knitted monkey gift.

I've just been checking our your monkee shop, and it great!
I love and want everything in it - except it's all sold :o( but well done you for selling it all!
Will you do me a custom order (if I ask nicely - pretty please) for a christmas present? I love half pint 11, he rocks!

Drats! I'm sure I was ..."This close".

Next time maybe. It was fun to try (and agonizing waiting the week for the results).

Congrats to the winners of all the groovey prizes.

Jodie said...

woo hoo , late as always but I am so glad that the grand opening went so well !
You deserve it - your stuff is super-duper-pooper-scooper as we say here (and trust me even though it has poop in it is is actually a compliment).

trek said...

Yay, thank you! Very cool.

yvette said...

Congratulations looks like you sold everything, that of course means that I have to start knitting a monkee........
