Monkeys Revealed!!

I stopped by the PO last night on my way home to get my package. I was so worried that I wouldn't make it before they closed. There was a car accident and 4 lanes of traffic had to be detoured a couple of blocks out of the way. I pulled into the parking lot at 5pm and thought for sure I'd have to come back tomorrow. I raced inside and guess what, their open until 6pm! So I rushed for nothing. When I got up to the counter, I couldn't find my orange slip. I thought for sure I had put it in my purse, so I wouldn't lose it. Had a bit of a panic attack, thinking I wouldn't be able to get my package, but luckily they accepted my drivers license and handed me the package. Was a bit worried, they would try asking me who the package was from for further verification. Because unlike myself, my secret pal was VERY good at keeping her identity a secret.

I found I had some help trying to get the box open. Java decided since I set the box on HIS perch, it must be worth investigating.


And here are all the lovely items that I received from Kary in Oklahoma. My new Sock Monkey is perfect. The colors will match my sewing room (once it's done). I also received a Sock Monkey Calendar, notebook and stitch markers. A monkey tape measure and some lovely denim blue Koigu sock yarn with 2 Cookie A. patterns; Mona and Thelonious. I think I'll use the Koigu on the Mona Socks.


And lest I not forget, here is a closeup of my Monkey Socks. Kary, I absolutely love the colors!! They just scream ME. The socks are made from JitterBug, 100% Merino Wool sock yarn. The color is Summer Berries. YUM! They fit great too. I wore them to work today.

Kary, thanks so much for my package. All of it was great.

So glad you like your monkeys-they look great! I had a great time doing this swap, and it's even more fun now that I don't have to obsess over keeping you from finding out who I am
