Well, it seems that lately all I've been doing lately is making sock monkeys!! In the past month-ish, I've made 13 sock monkeys and a sock puppy, plus finished off a couple for Mum.
Clover - green stripe with yellow stripe arms, tail, ears and yellow nose. He will be going to Sth Africa in September to his new home.
Dash - navy/blue stripes with blue/dot arms, tail, ears and navy nose.
Olivia - grey/multi-coloured owls with yellow striped arms, tail, ears and yellow nose. Owl-ivia didn't spell very well, so Olivia became her name.
Snowy - blue/snowflakes with navy/blue striped arms, tail, ears and navy nose. With snowflakes all over his body, how could he have any other name than Snowy?
Tango - orange with monkeys on each leg and orange/black striped arms, tail, ears and blue nose. Named after his vibrant orange colour which reminded me of tangerines.
Martin - red/blue dots with blue/red striped arms, tail, ears and blue nose, plus he is wearing a navy bow tie. He will be travelling to England to his new home with a little boy in August.
Violet - purple/white stripes with pale pinky/purple and owls arms, tail, ears and nose. Travelling with Clover to Sth Africa to her new home.
Hope - pinky/purple with owls and purple/hearts arms, tail and ears, she also has a dark purple bow in her hair. Hope was a gift for a lady starting treatment for cancer.
Zach - blue with zebra on each leg and blue/dark blue striped arms, tail, ears and orange nose, he also sports a navy bowtie. The third monkey who will travel to Sth Africa in September along with Clover and Violet.
Posey - grey/daisy with yellow striped arms, tail, ears and a yellow nose. Posey has a pink bow in her hair and will be travelling to England in August to her new home.
These two didn't get names here, they will be named by their new owners. They travelled to Auckland and were the first of the recent bunch to leave for their new homes - they're currently hiding, waiting to come out at Christmas! On the left we have a matching aqua/dark grey stripe, looking very spiffy with his orange bowtie. On the right she is a delicate pale pink with very pale blue stripes and the same pale pink with white hearts on her arms and ears, her tail is a slightly off-white that matches her nose. She has a pale bow in her hair too.
I still have a few more monkeys to make and have recently sewn up two more sock puppies that I want to make up soon. In fact, there's an almost-complete monkey beside me waiting to be finished.
