New Red Monkeys!
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.
