Monkey Sock Thank you!



Digression from Stranded Biz: I got my MONKEYSOCK Swap pack from Lori!!!!! It totally rocks. Avalook (I had to photo the whole experience, as it was my first online sock swap.

Thank you so much Lori for your thoughtful and much-appreciated gifts. I love it all.

First, the lovely brownpaper package from the land of Yank. Thank you postie.

Then, the wrapper is off and it's getting very exciting! I would have uploaded the pack au naturale, but its got Lori's addy on it. Nice BIG box.

Eh Voila! Along with heaps of gorgeous handdyed yarn - Knittery, Whatknot, and Cherry Tree Hill, are my very extra-special All Things Heather Raspberry Swirl Monkey Socks. Are these gawjus or what? Lucky me.

And don't you think my babygirl Lyta had to check it out? That's right, my dog licked my new monkey. Went to answer the phone and came back to find a wet stuffed monkey doll. BAD DOG!

Can't blame her tho, as is so cute.


Time to go VOTE in our federal election. I still get excited about voting as an AUSSIE.

Happy Knitting, Mel

Mel - Please look at the Monkey Swap blog when you have time. Thank you so much for the card, banana candy and koala key cover. I finally was able to get the photos out of my camera and onto the blog. Again, I appreciate your gifts. You are a great angel. Betty
