I have recently gotten to know the one and only Ruth Pretty. Well enough to know that Ruth Pretty likes crafty things and is not only a presenter but also a big supporter of the local Handmade event.
So, when I spotted these socks on the weekend in Ruth Pretty purple it just seemed like the right thing to do.
If you know Ruth you'll know she's quite famous for wearing her bright red lipstick at all times. I couldn't quite figure out how to pull that off on the monkey but I had a little of her ribbon left over from one of her Christmas Cakes (it doesn't show well here but the ribbon has her name on it) so I made the monkey a little apron.
I got an extremely exciting delivery from the printer yesterday - brand new Sock Monkey Kit packaging!
I'm off to Scotland on Friday for my brother's wedding so no kit packing for at least the next five weeks however, never before have I looked so forward to the task of packing my sock monkey kits. I'm hoping they will bring me just the right amount of enthusiasm to get me through the dreaded return flight!
Along with new packaging comes new socks and new colours. I'm going to have four knee high kits available soon so I thought we'd just have a quick peak at the colours since they just came back from photography and look so flippin cute!
