Just one more .....

...... squished 007 shot, then I promise to leave the poor primate alone. For a while.



So, his tricycle was in the garage but could he wait until RGH or I could get it out for him??




No. He couldn't.


Another tip then, for new monkee owners ..... it would probably be best to keep your little knitted chum on a lead at all times, as you never know what they're getting up to.


Look after your monkee*


In other news, if you fancy a monkee on your back shoulder, I've put some bags into my shop, and some 007 Christmas cards. No knitted monkees yet, but rest assured I am working on them, and should have a pack of primates ready before Christmas.


And once again I'll leave you with a very valid thought for the day .....




* Don't do as I do, do as I tell you ..... with thanks to my Mum for that quote, remembered from my childhood. I just wish I could remember what it was she was doing that I shouldn't ......

That's it. I'm sending 007 the number for "Monkee Line" (child line but for monkees, geddit!). If finding your monkee under a garage door isn't bad enough, you then go and photograph him rather than carrying out a rescue attempt. Shame on you.

(made me laugh though)

I'm fed up of all the word verification things here. 9 blinking letters today, all wonky so I can hardly read them. A combination of k's, x's and z's all on a slant, I can barely read them all. And as if that wasn't enough, you squash poor old 007 under the garage door. Why didn't you leave his tricycle outside where he could easily get to it? Or even bring it inside so he can ride around the house? I'm sure he'd be very careful not to run over any half made HP's.

The monkee cruelty really is getting too much. Vera is about to launch a rescue mission.

Thanks, for all the stories about your monkeys!!! You really make me laugh! And that is what I need at the moment!

Melissa said...

I want that calendar! Brilliant, just brilliant.

Lucy Locket-Pocket said...

Cruelty again. I'm disappointed in you Mrs MM - if Monkee Line call on you they may confiscate your knitting needles - then where would you be?

Lesley said...

I've heard that Monkee revenge can be a truly devastating experience. Don't say I didn't warn you!!

Kitty said...

"Don't do as I do, do as I say" is what my mum used to say to me ... I bet she was doing the same thing as your mum was doing. ;-) x

Bea said...

And I think I just got me a GREEEN monkee bag! :D

lucykate crafts... said...

oh dear, poor squished monkey! and a tricycle!, i saw him as more of a motorbike rider : )

Kaz said...

I haven't shown my monkeys your pics today in case they freak! It's bad enough wonkey watching me stick the needle in twisty while sewing him up (this time I didn't put the eyes on till last as having him watch while you sew legs onto him is awful).

Wow you've been busy with those bags they sure are scrummy!

Kate in Kent said...

I think maybe we need to form some sort of monkee rescue committee and get 007 out of there, because this has strayed into serious monkeebuse...

Yippee for shopping success! *IWILLonedayscoreamonkeemadeofknitIWILLonedayscoreamonkeemadeofknit*

ps: Our Michaela seems a bit frustrated - be kind to her, the poor chick; kitchen restoration can't be fun : (

ALLRIGHT! I'm teaming up with Michaela - this word verification IS FRUSTRATING!!!! (but, hey I got a monkee bag so I'm cool...)

I'm now wondering what mischief HP6 is up to :)

mushroommeadows said...

Poor little squished monkey. Now he looks more like Smashie! :)

I have fallen in love with your monkees (gosh, that sounds kinda creepy...) and since I am not sure when I will be lucky enough to purchase one, I decided to bravely follow the sirdar pattern and knit one for my 4 yr old monkee loving great nephew for Christmas. It seemed like such a good plan B until I got to the upper jaw. After 8 failed attempts I nearly gave up. I read on another blog where it was mentioned that you have shared your modifications for the upper jaw in the past on your blog. Sorry to post this here, but I have been reading through your archives for hours (which is very enjoyable, but my boss might start to care) and I haven't stumbled upon the pattern adjustments. Could someone more blog savvy than I maybe point me in the right direction? I would really appreciate it. Thanks! Oh, and I am thrilled to know that I am not the only one that struggles with the word verifications. :-)

DO they have an RSPCA just for Monkeys...I think your on the list!!!!

Monkee Maker said...

Dear All,

007 is fine, really. He's very malleable and bounces right back, honest! I've been hiding behind the sofa all day, afraid that a SMAT(Save Monkee Attack Tormentor) team may burst through the door at any moment!

And a note to JennieD (hope you see this) .... 6th July is the day you need to scroll back to. And don't give up with the mouth. It is a pain (and there will be holes) but with the use of a darning needle at the sewing up stage, you will get there.

:)

the vicious chicken said...

I was convinced you were going to say "look after your monkee... and your monkee will look after you!" I had visions of HP8 caring for me into my dotage...

VCx

ps you'll notice I haven't shown the same levels of concern for 007's welfare as other commenters... must make me a hard-hearted monkey enthusiast. Sorry, 007 :o(

Marianne said...

You are hereby accused of Monkee Abuse !!!

Gigibird said...

Do you think 007 is attention seaking because he doesn't get enough love from his Mummy?

Anonymous said...

July 6th - got it - thanks for taking the time to help me out!

(If you are curious, I found my way to you through Mason-Dixon to Squares for Oliver to Michaela to pictures of Vera to falling in love with Vera to your wonderful blog.)

I'm sure 007 was fine, after all he's not a "real" monkey. I'm sure he soon returned to shape with a little pummelling.

very entertaining as always

I've put a pattern for very quick knitted gifts on my blog.

and I only got 5 letters in the verification and no z or x!

Oh god, I need a monkey too, I think...they are soo funny. And I need a link to your blog too, I think, because this blog is way to funny too!
