Random Number Generators ....

They're great, aren't they? They never sleep. They never get confused by numbers. They never get emotionally involved. They have no guilt.



I put in the numbers 1 - 59 and immediately, without hesitation, it spat out No. 54 at me. At this time of the morning! Amazing!



So, No. 54 (Dottycookie) you win HP37 (who I think may actually be HP36 - you see? Me and numbers .... we don't get on); if you could mail a postal address to me at monkeemaker@yahoo.co.uk I'll arrange to get him posted to you.



And for anyone else who wants a monkee made of knit, this motley crew will be appearing in my shop on Wednesday at 10.00 am (UK time - there is a clock on the shop blog if you want to check the time difference) ......




Monkees in a basket



..... sorry, there are only 6 (and even worse - only two bags ..... my sewing mojo has completely deserted me recently) ..... but I'm planning on doing more monkee knitting and less messing around on the computer soon, so watch this space .....

PS, would have awarded you both the spreading love and cheery up awards but noticed you already had them. You do cheer up my working day when I read your posts. Oh, thats not rubbing your nose in it that I can by the way!

Congratulations Dotty Cookie!!! The basketful of monkees is fab and how can you apologise for 'only' making six? Six is lots of monkee knittage in my book!

PS more monkee knitting good... but less messing around on the computer bad if it means fewer fab photo-stories... 'tis a dilemma to know which is best :o)

Leanne said...

trashalou said...

Wow! Six monkees in a basket. Forget the amount of time it may have taken, think of all the irony used during all that stitching! Your eyebrows must be beyond twisted!!

E said...

well done dotty cookie - yay!

SuzyB said...

No???????? Surely not??? Surely not.... dare I believe.... is it possible... monkey socks?????

dottycookie said...

Oooooh! How excited am I? And more tho the point, how excited are my children?! They had a quick look at the lovely monkee before school (we were nearly late) and told everyone on the way that a monkee was coming to live at our house. Only a few more odd looks than usual, then.

Thank you so much! I am going to be in the monkee club, hurrah!

*Notes down 10am Weds, on the calendar*

"Messing around on the computer" :-O You call this messing around on the computer?! It's vital work you're doing here - entertaining the good and the great (and the lazy sluts - that's me, I'm not slagging off anyone else).

Those monkees look soooo gorgeous. x

Kitty said...

PS Meant to say 'well done Dotty!' x

SuzyB said...

But Wednesday is yonks aaaawaaaaay!
Do I need to be on my computer (in work time) 10.00am Wednesday otherwise I will miss the opportunity? What if the MD says 'make me a coffee' just as the clock strikes 10? Shall I tell him to bugger off, Im busy monkee shop watching?

Gigibird said...

I don't look for a few minutes and then I miss 2 posts and a givaway! Too busy thinking about wood I guess.

Gina said...

Congratulations Dottie Cookie! Stock up on the Smarties; I have a feeling that plain ol' choklit won't be psychodelic enough for this simian...

Hmph, hmph, hmph, hmph, hmph, damn you random number generator, why couldn't you generate number 28, its a much nicer number than 54...

And MM, I'm stuck at stinky work with no internet access on Wednesday at 10am... HMPH!

Right, I am off to consume copious numbers of ginger biscuits and blondies to cheer myself up now.

N(G)BM xx

PS :o(

PPS Congratulations Dotty Cookie, I'm sure you'll give the lovely little monkee a very good home :o)

marmar2 said...

congrats Dotty Cookie!
I am not jealous, I am not.

I hope I am back on time wednesday. Maybe it is raining wednesday, so I don't have to hike. Just buy a monkee, that is easily done, or not?

LoveAnna said...

I've got a basket just like that, sadly not full of monkeys! I'm feeling miffed because I'm at work with no internet access, no electronic interactive whiteboard, not even a flipchart. The silver lining being curry from the local Temple for lunch!

Sal said...

Oh Nooooooo! I'm at work wednesday morning with no computer access! and I really like the look of the pinky one at the back!

mrspao said...

Very cute monkees of knit!

Leigh said...

Congrats to Dotty Cookie!! Would everyone hate me if I managed to snag Bentley a friend on Wednesday, haha?

SuzyB said...

hmmm, Im sure I read its one monkee per household didnt I? No? Oh.

Anyway, is it time yet, is it, is it, is it?

lauren said...
