Multi-coloured Monkee Menagerie

On Sunday, we were listening to this, possibly the best album in the whole wide world EVER* , which was very apt as it reminded me of this little project I was working on ......



..... why, it's "jest" HP25



..... part of a range of multi-coloured monkees that will be going into my shop tomorrow at 10 pm UK time. I know I said "early this week", but it's slipped back to "midweek ..... in fact, getting on for late week". Sorry.



HP's 21 - 25



Also, apologies if the time doesn't suit some people who may want one of the primates, but I'm trying to mix and match the times I open my shop so that more people have a chance to bagsy one.



Oops, I was nearly forgetting this little fellow ......


HP26 ..... he'll be there too. Don't hate him because he's not psychedelic.



* in my humble opinion

oh oh oh I NEED either the blue one or the red one. 10pm? At night? After my bedtime? I shall stay up with a flask of hot chocolate camped by the laptop. Either that or I'll forget and be devasted.

Lovin' the jester monkee. Reminds me of Mr Claypole (Rentaghost?)

Your needles must be wearing away. How on earth do you manage to keep monkeying away? Well done you.

Cool monkees - particularly the Marillion one!! My brother used to love that album!

Katy said...

And this time the blooming lap top that works is broken (after my wonderful husband got angry with it and hit it...a little too hard perhaps?) so I am on the old fashioned 1860s wind up/steam powered one. It takes a week to refresh a page. I started writing this a month ago, you know.

I am starting to believe that a monkee is not destined to be with me...but I shall try my damnest to rescue one of them from your clutches, madam!!!!

But, thank you for Marillion, ah, fond memories of my once handsome (now hideous) first boyfriend....[off she goes in a nostalgic bubble]

Cool monkees missus! Still like the brown ones too though! Will be watching the shop like a hawk tomorrow night! Lucy x

Jodie said...

Seriously cute monkey work as always - I love them all.

Kaz said...

Oohhh I lurve the colours on those! Funky monkeys rule! I'm gonna drink lots of coffee to stay awake cos I've got my eyes on the hairy one!!

After Christmas I shall be asking for hints on making an HP of my own. You have been warned!!

Lesley said...

Oh my word MM - they are all just wonderful. We like the rainbow hues of HP25. We also like his fluffy friend. Then there's the blue stripy one...
Ruby and I want to rescue one too so we'll be hovering.

HP25 looks like a Crayola accident!

:o)

ooooooooh! what a kerrrrazzeee chimptastic kaliedoscope of kolors!

(sorry, i was aiming for the amusing alliterationy thing ms. locket-rocket-pocket does so well...but clearly i should leave it to her, since i am rubbish!)

i for one LOVE the way you are varying the times of the monkee shoppee debuts in order that, regardless of our linternational location, we can all have a chance of gettin' in first! (& i'm not just saying that b/c 10pm uk is 6pm my time! ...OOF...especially since i've just realized i will be at the dreaded dentist then sigh ah well, maybe i will get *HP26*??!)

Marianne said...

Love those monkees ! They are sooo tempting !
Nice change after seeing black all days :-) Maybe I can paint my bunny ?

Kitty said...

Those are a very cool bunch of monkeys. Your fingers must be on fire with all the knitting!

:-) x

Stine said...

Good morning all! I'm hoping to purchase a monkee next time shop opens. I've even added an extra clock to my computer screen with GMT on it so I can be in the right place at the right time. Of course that only works if I've the correct time on the clock. I guess we'll see. This current batch of monkees are lovely colors and such a happy looking bunch!

the vicious chicken said...

Ooh, lots of lovely colourful monkees... hurrah!

I'm glad to see that you've totted up your past primates and worked out a number for HP?. And that you've now given him some eyes, of course :o)

Working Mom Knits said...

"Rainbow monkeys!" How awesome it that!... These monkeys are absolutely beautiful.

Michaela said...

I can only assume that you've been trying out a new range of mushrooms. Or else you had rather too much wine. Or maybe even that you had too many scraps of wool left over. Or even all 3 reasons.

MM you are completely bonkers. These are great little monkee fellows - bright and jolly and very festive. Ho ho ho!

Leigh said...

I love them all! I am going to try to find out our time difference now!!

yvette said...

They are all fab and seeing as I currently have knitted one monkee leg, I will be finding ways to stay awake to 11pm my time, which is way, way, way past my bedtime.

julie said...

what a brilliant batch of monkeys HP's 21 - 25 are and I love the picture - it looks like they're all about to break into a dance routine! Good luck later at 10pm x

mrspao said...

What an awesome bunch of monkees!!!

Lesley said...

Congratulations MM - another great Monkee sale!! This was my first try (HP24 you know we love you!!) and I'm amazed. Who are these people with the superfast commenting skills? Do they take steroids to enhance their performance? Do they know some special commenting tricks that is mere mortals do not possess? It's like the Harrods sale only more frantic!!!
What have you started woman??
