I am going travelling for work soon (no where too exiting) and a friend said that I should make a travelling sock Monkey of my own. So today Mr Sparkles was born. Although you can't see it from this photo he is made from sparkly socks. Turns out sparkly socks don't like to be cut up and stitched as Mr Sparkles looks a little bit worn.

Will post travelling photo's and updates on my myspace page.

Thank you. Did you take photo's of the travelling cone?

Mr Sparkles has now been to Cornwall. I have also made three more monkeys. I have blogged their stories on myspace (link in my sig). I have very imaginitive friends! Hamish McSporran is travelling to Italy this week and will be making an appearance at an Italian wedding.

Where did you get those socks at?  They make the most awesome monkeys.  The sock monker I made for my critter is the original red heel toe sock monkey, I love the colours of these.
Hope they have some good travels!

Takinanap, I love your sock monkeys. I especially like their faces.

cadillac.tramp, I got my socks from a high street fashion store. Usually top shop and Dorothy Perkins. You can't get the traditional red heal socks here so I had to make do. My friends seem to get a kick out of the designs on the socks as well as the actual monkey.

I have made some more. One is going to a friend who lives in France. Another will be taken to Alten Towers next month and I have promised to make one for my mum who will take it to Boston. I also made my first socktopus.

my friend has gnomes in her garden and one disappearred on day, most weeks after that she got a postcard of a picture of the gnome in different places like the eiffle tower and taj mahal, i think it went most of the way round the world.
After about a year the gnome appeared on her front door step with a note saying "I missed you".
I no it is kind of stealing but I thought the idea of takeing a random gnome or sock monkey etc around the world is such a cute thought.

My husband and I play the punchbuggy game, so for our first Christmas together he bought me a model Kombi van, it was very cool.  We took it to Europe with us that year to meet my dad.  The Kombi van went to Prague, Berlin, London and Singapore with us!  Here's a photo of my hubby showing the Kombi van the sights from the train window on the way from Prague to Berlin:

This was about 5 minutes after we'd awoken from a nap (it was a five hour trip, mostly in darkness because we went in Winter!  And yes, I have two woolly jumpers on! Cheesy):

By the way, I really love the sock monkeys too!  I have a couple of pairs of over-the-knee socks in my waiting-to-be-turned-into-sock-monkey basket!  I think they'll have WICKED long limbs and tail!
