Hello All! It's a bit manic at the Hut. The Monkeys are definitely going to be released on the Stockton Heath Festival on 9th July. We are going to be on display with The Make and Do studio who have brilliant arranged for a few local crafters to all display there wears together (No way I would have had the confidence to have a whole stall to myself - so Thank you very much Maeri!)
So I though you could have a sneak peak at ones I am making for the Festival! Most of them will cost between £15 & £20 with some being more as they are either bigger Monkeys or limited edition. They will be sold on first come - first served basis so make sure you come and say Hello!

Hello, Thought I would make a Patriotic Monkey with all excitment over the Royal Wedding. So here is Union Jack Monkey. He is one cool Monkey! And he is available for rehoming if anyone is interested. He is a limited edition as I only had the one pair of socks like this.... (Unless anyone can tell me where I can get some similar ones.... I know there is bunting and flags everywhere you look at the moment. )

Animal Monkey is the latest monkey to be re-homed. The Monkeys have been in touch on Facebook and Animal is very happy in his new home.

An alternative to Monkeys - Sock Pigs! A quick and easy make with one odd sock and a few buttons. I think they look quite effective though!

Here is the latest Monkey to leave the Hut. He is being auctioned on Friday 25th February to help raise money for Active Hope. He has been made in the Charity colours to be a Monkey mascot.

Figured it was about time to find out if the Monkeys liked water! My monkey jumped at the chance to be whizzed round and round.(He said it would be like being on the Rapids... Not sure how he knows this as he's never left the house!) So.... the Adrenaline Junkie Monkey was put in the washing machine on a normal 40o wash with Shampoo and conditioner. (To make him soft and smell sweetly - not sure he will thank me for that!) I wrapped him in a net washing bag so he didn't get flung about too much but a pillow case or similar would do exactly the same thing. Think he was a bit dizzy at the end but otherwise he loved it! Not to sure he loved being pegged up by his ear to drip dry but the tumble dryer would be too hot - even for this crazy Monkey!

The Sock Monkeys finally got their way and have a page all of their own. They asked if they could stay in touch with all their Sock Monkey mates
that had left the Monkey Hut recently. They wanted to make sure they were being loved and looked after. I'm sure they are - they all went to good Homes and they like to explore.
If you have a "Lilibet Made Monkey" send me a picture of your Monkey and I'll try to create a gallery of them! Note the "Try"... Let's just say it took me a while to get to this point, but so far so good....
