Monkey Mayhem!

MonkeyFriends


Rosie and her friends, both old and new. Seriously, who would have thought you could have this much fun making sock monkeys!


MonkeyLoveBefore


Well, I'm pretty sure Debbi knew we would have that much fun! It is her incredible pattern after all. This is her before.....


MonkeyLove


....and after we covered her with monkey love!! (see Rosie in her arm, how can you miss those botoxed red lips!)

MeandCockeyed


Debbi certainly played a big role in me going to camp this year and I am so glad I got to hang out with her all week! I can not say enough about how wonderful she and all the sockateers are! I miss her already! Here's her original Funky Sock Monkey in the picture above. The pattern is written for a large monkey like this one and a small monkey (like the ones that you've been seeing around!).


The pattern should be available soon on the Blue Moon website, but I thought one of you lucky readers might not be able to wait so I bought an extra pattern at camp! Let me know if you are interested in the sock monkey pattern in the comments below and I'll pick a random winner this week!


Contest closes Thursday at 6pm PST.


Happy Knitting!!

I totally NEED the pattern so I can make monkeys for my monkeys. And for Hazza in England - he is monkey crazy.

I SO want to spend a week with knitters making socks :0)

Oh, and you forgot to post more yarn pics today :0p

Lisa said...

Awww! i would love the pattern. My son, who just turned one, carries around the sock monkey I sewed for him out of socks. I have been looking around for a good knit pattern!

Heehee, what great pics! I especially dig that smoking beatnik bongo monkey - and I immediately zeroed in on Rosie in Debbi's arms!

After seeing all those super fab monkeys, how could I not want the pattern! Count me in!

Tricia said...

These are so adorable - will you bring Rosie to the next SnB night? I want to make one for my niece and another for my nephew and another for ME!

Zonda said...

They are too cute!!! Sounds like a super time! :)

Kittenster said...

Ohh, pick me please. Than I can knit a monkey for my Monkey(daughter). Glad you had fun at camp.

c2drvrswyf said...

Looks and sounds like a fabulous time at sock camp! I'm jealous! Love the monkeys and would love to be entered in the contest. That is very generous of you!

Angela said...

Totally jealous....

My knitting friends and I couldn't go to sock camp because it hit during our kid's spring break--we had planned to go...but when the dates were posted we were SO disappointed. I could knit little sock monkies to cheer both of them up.

Besides...if you pick me you won't have to pay postage....I'll come pick it up! (I'm in Menlo Park). (shameless plug)

Spinning Ninny said...

you're crazy!! so many monkeys!!

knittinwolf said...

Those monkey's are just tooooooo cute. I call my son "monkey" all the time. The camp looks like it was sooooooooooo much fun.

laurie in maine said...
