Anyone for skittles?


Do you remember these boys?


Monkey skittles ..... aka The New Monkey Army






Well, now I have them in knit form .....



(I know, it's taking me ages to finish these troops ..... I keep getting distracted)









Anyone fancy a game? I even found the perfect soft ball .....








Oops ..... my mistake ......



(Sorry, Sue*)




* No super-soft furry monkey warmer was harmed in the making of this post. Just squished up a bit. And then taped up. Oh and dropped. (but only once twice)

Hey MM! Not sure if you know but your super, furry, monkey hand-warmer/softee ball thing appears to have left its arms behind in whatever hell dimension it lurked while all taped up and ball -like!

Only the hands are left and even they look a bit tenuous!

You wouldn't believe how excited I go then as I thought you really had made a knit version of the New Monkee Army!! Still, it's exciting anyone as there is more Monkee goodness on the way :)
A bit of being squished up and taped never hurt anyone - may have led to some arrests though!

Ooooh, new monkees are a-coming! My Lazy Slut Disorder is happy. :-D x

I agree with Kitty - LSD is very happy! Cruelty to monkees must stop soon though - however much it makes us all laugh! Lucy x

Oh, ouch, imagine the pain as the tape is ripped back off the monkee fur (oh, hang on, these guys aren't flesh and blood, are they?)

Looks like a great game to me! Although they do like a bit like butternut squash warmers (not squashed nut warmers) from the back!

Love the new monkey army MM, I hope you don't mind that I borrowed your photo of the abominable snow monkey as I couldn't get the link to pick it up. I have also given you a "You make my day award" please pop over to my blog and read about it. Jane x

Monkey skittles looks like fun (except for the monkeys, perhaps) - it's the kind of sport I could really see myself taking an interest in :o)

Nice body colors !
You could also sell them to a bowling-alley, saves a lot of time when you don't have to finish arms and legs !
