Sock it to Me


My neighbor friend, Tina, has this thing with sock monkeys. I'm not exactly sure how it got started, but for a while now she's made sock monkeys for the children of her friends and relatives. She uses those big thick hiking socks, which make for some cute, rugged (and well-insulated) monkeys.

Zaya got his Tina-made sock monkey when he turned two, and now Mim has one too. She's having lots of fun with it, and it's now part of the sleepy-time menagerie on her bed. Anyway, all that to say....

Thanks!!

or, as Mim would say...

Tanks!!

So cute! I've always wanted a sock monkey. I'm not sure I'll ever get one, though.

Cute, rugged, well-insulated...and machine washable :) I'm glad she likes it! This blog made my day.

Sock monkeys are really cute, and it looks even cuter with Mim holding it!

Yes, I remember a couple of sock monkeys myself. We all loved them.

oh my.. sock monkeys

I loved them when I was a little girl.

I actually dug them out of our closet last week and showed my two boys. They sort of rolled their eyes and laughed... "this was a toy?"


shhesh!

Just for that comment, I hung them in their bedrooms... :)

Sainted Mother used to make sock monkeys for us when we were kids. I loved those things.
