Monkey Madness at the Hut!

Hello All! It's a bit manic at the Hut. The Monkeys are definitely going to be released on the Stockton Heath Festival on 9th July. We are going to be on display with The Make and Do studio who have brilliant arranged for a few local crafters to all display there wears together (No way I would have had the confidence to have a whole stall to myself - so Thank you very much Maeri!)
So - the Hut is very busy making a collection of Monkeys that can be sold at the festival. I hope there will be a good mixture of sizes, colours and patterns but I will also take orders if people want something specific.
The Monkeys are all handmade and unique - I can never promise that I can make a monkey just like another Monkey - They are all individuals! Many of the Socks I only have one pair of - I don't buy loads of the same patterns / colours as you never know what it will turn out like until the Monkey is born and plus I like the variation.

So I though you could have a sneak peak at ones I am making for the Festival! Most of them will cost between £15 & £20 with some being more as they are either bigger Monkeys or limited edition. They will be sold on first come - first served basis so make sure you come and say Hello!
There will be more sneak peaks to follow soon . xxx

Mutant Monkey? No Its an ELEPHANT!

Hello! Thought I had better let you blog followers know about this little lady that the Facebookers have had a preview of. I actually made this lovely pink elephant as a special request for an old school friend who got in touch on Facebook. It was made for another old school friend who has a soft spot for elephants and was due to have a pink flavoured baby. Facebook has now introduced beautiful baby Molly so I can post pictures without ruining any surprises. (Hope all is well with the new family! xx)
As for other news.... been very busy at the Hut trying to make enough Monkeys to take to the Stockton Heath Festival whilst keeping up with orders. Festival is on 9th July - same day as Walking Day on the Mill Lane Field. I promise to post some pictures of Monkeys made ready to sell at the fair in advance, so you followers can have a sneak peak of what will be available. Be lovely to see you all!
