THIS IS WHY…….. I join sock swaps……
My package from Chrispy, Monkey Pal #1, arrived on Saturday filled with lots of goodies. Monkey Sock Swap THREE. What can I say? It has been just as much fun as Monkey Sock Swap ONE and TWO!
Chrispy is an excellent sock knitter! Aren’t these fun Monkey Socks? She altered the pattern to a short-row heel and it fits my foot perfectly! Monkey Swap THREE was different from the other two in that you were also required to send a Cookie A. pattern and yarn to knit the pattern. The pattern my Monkey Pal sent was THEOLINUS along with some lovely brown Koigu yarn.
Isn’t this Koigu all yumminess? Check out the banana gift bag and the cute little monkey!
Monkey goodies included one of my favorite childhood link games, A Barrel of Monkeys and a very cool Lego animal set. Imagine that! A monkey made out of Legos!
And of course, there were sweets……. cute little monkey candy!
AND THIS IS WHY………… I love in Colorado……..
4 to 5 inches of beautiful snow arrived yesterday. This is the second time it has snowed. I will try not to burden you with too many snow pictures this year but I do LOVE living in the mountains. The best thing about snow up here? The sun comes out with beautiful blue skies following the storm. No dreary winters. I just have to have my sunshine!
