Any news?

What's happening with the socks?

I have to say, I'm really disappointed with how this is turning out... the idea was a wonderful one and I eagerly signed up to participate. When it was my turn, I made sure to knit my part, take some pics and send it on to the next person, all within just a few days (I believe it was 3). What should have been a relatively quick journey for these socks has taken more than a year, with the sock/s often spending weeks, even months, in one place.

Come on people, if you can't meet your commitment, either pull out or just send them on to the next person.

I, for one, can't wait to see what these socks will look like when they're finished, and I want to celebrate the fact that they've travelled around the world and been knitted in so many different places.

TISA? AlphaMonkey? Are you still alive?

As the mommy of TISA and AlphaMonkey, I'm starting to get worried about them. Fibersnob, knittygurl, are they still with you or have they been sent to the next knitter in line? There were rumors of AlphaMonkey taking part in a scavenger hunt, but TISA hasn't been seen in a loooong time. Does anyone know where they are? I've sent several emails, but no answer yet. Have they been eaten by the big and bad moths, or are they lost somewhere on the way? If anyone has any info, please let the rest of us know. We all want to know how the little sock-creatures are doing.

Helllloooo out there........

Good morning everyone. My distantly related Monkey socks would like to hear from their wandering relatives, AlphaMonkey and TISA. Where are you, what have you been doing, are you having fun? Inquiring minds (and socks!) want to know. Stay cool and be sure to use sunscreen! - Your friend, Pippin_Knit

TISA, wherefore art thou?

Well, I guess that she's somewhere in the States with knittygurl, I hope. Hope she's having fun.

Psst, Alpha Monkey and his faternal twin (Beta Monkey) are a little bit ahead of us...

It's here!

Yay! Looks like Alpha Monkey will be coming with me on the scavenger hunt, or maybe Beta Monkey as I'm set to knit the cuff of the second sock. Pics and crazy knitterlyness to come....

Waiting and hoping

So Alpha Monkey is on his/her way to me and I'm keeping my eye out for the mail. I'm hoping that it arrives tomorrow or Monday as I'd love to use it for the scavenger hunt here in Toronto on Tuesday for Steph's book launch. At worst I have another pair on the go for that night.

And the winner is...

Hi everyone! AlphaMonkey is on its way again, so I thought this would be a good time to announce the winner of the CONTEST. The random number generator gave me a hand with the drawing, and it picked out.... drumroll... Fibersnob. CONGRATULATIONS!

This delicious yarn will be heading in your direction in the near future.


Now I can't wait to hear more about AlphaMonkey's and TISA's adventures. Keep the stories coming and the socks travelling!
