Where to find more sock critters.

The Sock Monkeys asked me to give the Sock Critters their own blog, so here we go:

New monkeys

I'm about ready to make five new monkeys in anticipation of the Halcyon Craft Fair on Nov. 12 and 13th in Halcyon CA (near Santa Maria). I'm doing the show with my daughter and I can't wait.

Please remember that toys with button eyes are not for babies and toddlers. Soon I will have some monkeys with felt and embroidery eyes, and eyes that use locking washers for kids that are too small for buttons. Posted by Hello

Hi, I don't have a home yet. You get to name me. Right now I'm just MC-3. That stands for sock monkey 3. I'm only $33.00 plus $7.50 for my plane ticket. I have sparkly red sequin arm bands and a cute red hat and faux pearl and filigree button eyes. Will you be my mommy? Posted by Hello

Irish Monkey. He has green eyes and a little felt shamrock on his tummy for good luck. Posted by Hello

T-shirts with sock monkeys.

I just added sock monkey t-shirts to my cafe press store. And I'm definitely going to order one to wear and get the word out about the monkeys.

Hey everybody, I'm Wallace. Sock monkeys were first created over a 100 years ago. No one knows exactly who made the first one either. Posted by Hello
This is Wallace. He likes to do yoga. Posted by Hello

My first two sock monkeys ever!

These are my "Adam and Eve' so to speak. The start of a new adventure. I still need to make her a hat and I'm not so sure about his. His hat looks more like hair. I love her 'belly button.' The first two aren't for sale...I want them around to say they are the pair that started it all.
Before you know it I'll have some funky monkeys ready for new homes, so hang in there.

The start of something great (I hope)

First I'd like to post the first two sock monkeys I ever made. And I'm trying to get a photo of one my mother-in-law made back in the late 70's or early 80's. And as soon as I get about 10 monkeys finished, I'll get a website and set up the adoption center. I've been researching other one-of-a-kind original collectable sock monkeys and the going rate seems to be between $35 and $45. So I'll probably follow their lead.
