New Red Monkeys!

Dear Diary,

I have been making Monkeys for a few days. Red sock monkeys - Scarlet's sisters. My friend who/whom I would take an enema for (I really love her cause this is worse than a bullet!) wanted me to make a red sock monkey for her friend. I don't know this friend but I'm sure she is wonderful. So I finally found some red cable socks at target. After making Miss Rouge, I noticed that her stuffing kind of shows through. So my next trip to target I bought girls red tights. These were thicker and the stuffing does not show through so much. Now I have made a sister named Cissy Crimson. I think I'll have to switch colors because I can't think of any more monkey names that have to do with red. Unless Holly Berry would work.

The last week of school I learned about the legend of the Holly Berry. I thought that was so funny because it sounded so much like Halley Berry! Do you think her mother realized this when she named her? When is Halley Berry's birthday? I hope it is not around Christmas.

Tonight I started making a small red sock monkey out of 2 1/2 to 5 size red socks. I think I'll name her Holly Berry.

The top picture is the one made from the cable knit socks - she is definitely not as graceful as her sister made from girl's tights. But that's another story.

Just as cute as can be! Love it! Now I have red names floating around in my head - ruby, rouge, vermillion, garnet, cardinal . . . but I've never named a monkey so you're own your own there. So clever and talented, you are!
Happy New Year!

These three red sock monkeys were sent to ME! Cissy Crimson and Holly Berry now live a coddled life among my collection of Lisa Art Dolls. The third, Miss Rouge, I parted with to give to my great-nephew...It was hard to let her go.

As far as taking bullets or enemas go, I'd go the same for you, my talented, dear friend. Anytime!
Love you, Leslie
