Monkey Sock Swap Four :)

I rejoined the Monkey sock Swap 4 this time round. Last time around my partner defaulted despite assurances to the contrary to more than myself. My Swap 4 pal Sheryl has more than made up for any prior disappointments. She was my recipient last round and I loved having her for a pal then too. :)

Look at all the pretty wrapped parcels

All unwrapped and so many items it could be hard to do them all justice. Apologies if I missed out on anything!
Pens and pencils, notepads, stickers, keyrings (one a sock knitted in matching yarn), a pretty sock monkey purse and fabulous
monkey stitchmarkers!! Wow!! A georgeous little box, a purse and project bag all in monkey themes. Yarn wise 2 different yarns: Louet Gems Merino in Cherry Tree Hill Old Roses colourway and a skein of Araucania Ranco Solid in pink. And a CookieA pattern Moselle. :)

Aren't these so cute!!

I love Louet Gems and Cherry Tree Hill colours!!

The piece de la resistance!!

I love how they fit! The detail is beautiful and the yarn fabulous!!!

The only problem is this good weather prevents me from pulling them on tomorrow and strutting them about at work to show them off!!

I love them :) Thank you so much!!

Oh what a wonderfully imaginative and thoughful swap. And the socks look made to measure.

Hope you had a good weekend. I missed YPF, but I have to say I LOVE the colour of the cheesecake yarn.
