For SuzyB .... to get her off my back


..... ok, so my blogging chum SuzyB hasn't actually been on my back about this recently (and isn't that just typical?!), but a while ago she was all "monkey socks" this and "monkey socks" that, and "when are you going to make me some monkey socks you lazy *****" (I added that last one, just for dramatic effect).



But I don't do socks. Apart from this one ......






.... which never got a mate because knitting socks, quite frankly, doesn't do it for me.






And no, I didn't unravel it to make this .....




Dottycookie's psychedelic monkee .....





So, sorry Suzy, I don't do socks.




I do these .....





..... and occasionally these ......







But I don't do socks.



Still, I must confess that when I saw this fabulous pair I received for Christmas .....






.... I thought of you ....






Until I realised that these aren't really the kind of monkey socks that you were after.




So how about this?






..... monkey socks sock monkey ......











...... will that do you? ......









..... now let's not mention monkey socks again, ok?




Right. Enough of that frivolity. On to the proper monkee business. Two bags and six monkees will be appearing in a shop near you at 10 am today (UK time).




..... 007 and 27 are keen to see them go .....





But I just need to mention something about one of them .....




I must confess that I prefer my monkees naked, but when I got home the other day I found this .....



..... primate in pants ......






He's embarrassed to be seen on the internet in his briefs ......




..... and he should be ......





So if you happen to bag this monkee later this morning, he can come avec pants, or sans pants ..... the choice will be yours. (I just knew those French evening classes would pay off one day ..... )

Monkees in undies?!!! How cute is that!! Some of our Monkehs wear clothes and some run around starkers. Its all up to them. I'm really going to give the 10am thing a go this time. But most of the folks who read here have very quick fingers on the keys. I was going to say heres fingers crossed but that will slow me down too much.

Here's hoping!

OH, the monkey sock sock monkey is very cute! He isn't scary like the ones with the REALLLLLY long legs a while back!

As for the chap in pants - he has won my heart. I want him. Or to utilise my old French - J'il want. Or something like that.

PS Word verification = fmrme. Not sure what the verb 'to fmr' means, but I'm up for it.

Leanne said...

How cute they all look in the round basket. The pink sock monkee is really sweet. However I think I might have worn them as socks I'm a bit partial to bright socks umm that makes me sound a bit crazy !!!

Lucy Locket-Pocket said...

Love the monkey sock sock monkey - true class! And as for primates in pants, what a brilliant idea! (But who did they belong to first?)

Fingers will be hovering over keyboards in another attempt to get a monkee for Dorothy's best friend!

trashalou said...

I've heard of 'primates in pants' - isn't that some sort of natural wildlife study lead by that Dianne Fussey? You know, they did a movie about it all with The Alien Terminator woman starring in it. Sure, of course you remember...

Ooo! I think I just bought the very last item in the shop! Yay me! If that Haloscan was playing up and nothing was saved then MM please notice I bagsied it before 10:30

Gigibird said...

Could you please take a photo of those pants on his head?

Kae said...

Not sure about the primate in pants though... hmmmm... what have you done to him to make him want to wear pants???? Lol.

Rachael said...

Bleep Bleep Bleep Blllleeeeppp I wasn't fast enough to get a monkey again. I have no choice those knitting needles are going to have to come out from where I hid them in a fit of temper and I am going to have to attempt a monkey made of knit. When I get more blisters you know who I'm going to blame don't you. x

Lesley said...

Congratualtions on another monkee sell out!!!
I love your monkee socks sock monkee - very clever bit of cutting out to get those ears with faces on!
As we live in a house where creatures of all sorts end up being dressed in pants I find the primate in pants very normal :)

Sorry I missed the sale I was wandering aimlessly round a small town looking for a non-existent fabric shop :(

Mrs Moogsmum xx

p.s. typing this on my laptop which DH got set up for me when I came home brandishing a telephone extension cable. Therefore it doesn't matter that you were no longer willing to join the fray with the rest of the BWA !!!

Kaz said...

That monkey socks sock monkey is a cutie, even if the combination of monkeys and socks in the description confuses me.

Glad to hear you'll have some hairy ones next time, mine is going nowhere at the mo.

dottycookie said...

Monkey sock monkey is just brilliant! Such perfectly lined up monkeys on the ears!

I should tell you excitement at the arrival of the psychedelic monkee is reaching fever pitch ...

Sue said...

Love the monkee in undies! LOL!

joanne wardle said...

lauren said...

i just CANNOT decide which i love more: monkee sock sock monkee (ok--that is HARD to type quickly!) or mr. monkeepants?! nope. can't possibly choose. they are equally, amazingly, AWESOME!!!

just one question...and i apologize that it's a bit personal...but i really must know: *WHOSE* pants are those???! :) :) :)

Marissa said...

Ooh, I LOVE the monkey sock sock monkey! (that's fun to say!) and j'adore the monkee in panties...or is that pantees? I am also VERY bummed (tres bummed) that I live in California (which, actually is not so bad) but that I miss out on your shop openings at 10 AM UK time, which is 2 AM my time, and I only see 2 AM on Friday and Saturday nights when I've been out for a nip of something and by then I don't have the mental capacity to buy monkees...or do I?? Anyway, I beseech! Please do your shopkeeping in the evening hours so that us PSTers have half a chance to have a monkee of our very own!? Much love, Marissa the Crazy Californian PSTer who Loves Monkees Too.

The monkey sock sock monkey is FANTASTIC - inspired, truly!

MsGrace said...

OMG...these are so fabulous!! My friend Lauren sent me over here to check these out. My 10 year old daughter just started making sock creatures & currently has one on my blog in search of a name...if you have a chance she would be thrilled if you left a comment.
Thanks,
Laura

The monkey sock sock monkey is an inspired confection. The panted monkey on the other hand leads me to think that you may have had house-training problems with this one. Do Tena pads come in simian size?

PS The word verification is kkuirs, so there may be hope for him yet...
