Alpha Monkey Made it to Washington, D.C.

The mailman brought the Alpha Monkey sock to me today while I was resting in bed recovering from a mean case of Monkey Gut. If you're not familiar with this ailment, it's the much beloved stomach flu that brings a variety of delightful symptoms that are not discussed in polite company. Suffice it to say that I have been staying close to the bathroom.

When the package arrived, I put down the project that I had been working on while convalescing, and I worked the heel right away.

I admire all of the lovely photos that everyone has taken of Alpha Monkey and her travels. When I am feeling up to it, I will take Monkey out on the Metro and try to take photos of her with some of the famous D.C. monuments before I send her on her way.

Here is a picture of the heel that I added:
















And here is a picture of the cool goodies that Ozknitter included in the package (Thank you!)















I'm sorry that my tummy is in such a delicate state right now because normally I would have consumed those chocolate cookies by now. ;-)

Yay! Glad to see the parcel arrived safe and sound.

Enjoy the TimTams! If you have warm weather now, it's good to know that you can eat them right out of the freezer or the fridge (they go 'crisp' rather than 'hard').

Enjoy!

Feel better soon, Evelyn!

Hi Evelyn :D
I see that you added the heel 14 days ago, but I am still waiting here in Norway for Alpha Monkey to come visiting me. Do you have my address, or is something wrong? Anything I can do to speed things up, I'll help :D
