I Received My Monkey Socks

I received amazing gifts from three Sock Monkey Angels - and angels indeed they are. Rachel from Vermont made a pair of Monkey socks that fit my large feet with perfection. They were made from Serendipity Zen String in the Pagaea colorway (beautiful blue and greens).

Melissa from Australia send banana candy, a Cookie A Twisted Flower sock pattern and a koala key cover. So cute.

Esther from California sent a Cookie A Thelonious sock pattern with the cutest Monkey stuffed animal ever who was holding Body and Earth vanilla sugar (the monkey must have known I needed a little extra pampering). Also Esther sent a Knitpickers Yarn Traveler's bag I can use to hold a sock project while I travel, Monkey valentines and stickers, a black cell bag, a sunflower notecard and Tofutsies color 727 (pink and dark gray) sock yarn.

WOW - I was blown away. To everyone who saved me from despair, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. This was such a special act of kindness and I appreciate your generosity and Rachel's and Rebecca's hard work to make this happen. I only hope I can do the same for another Monkey swap when an angel is needed. I hope everyone has received a package my now. Mine was certainly worth waiting for.

My monkeys have landed

Came home Saturday to a box on the front door. Inside was monkey socks in a pretty pink varigated On Line sock and in side the box was a major haul!

Enough yarn to make 2 pairs of socks, one is a local hand-dyed yarn in Dark Elf, 2 skeins of Patons sock yarn, a monkey, patterns, etc.

Thank you so much Barb! It was a very nice package and well worth the wait! :)

I received my monkeys from my monkey angel Eve. You can see photos of them on my blog at: Thank-you Eve for stepping in as an angel and knitting me my monkeys. They are a perfect fit and I love the color and the feel. Your packaging is great also. I want to come up with some way to package mine also now.
I hope all those who have not received part or all of their swaps have or will receive something from an angel like I did shortly.
