number 8

"Hi! I used to be in the circus and I can do the splits and lift my leg up to my head. I like jumping about and doing cartwheels. I used to be in the circus, you know! Will you be my friend?"

Did you know (you may have guessed from the title) that this is sock creature number 8? I found that naming the sock creatures was getting more difficult and were looking like this: 'medium sized pink stripey sock monkey with black button eyes' - it's just so long! I'll call them by their number from now on. I've got two more to show you, but I don't want them to steal her thunder, so I'll show them to you after the weekend. I'm quite pleased with them - they're a bit different and I think that they are very cool.


  1. monkey No.8 pink candy. shock to me i thought monkeys were male to find them to be female ???????????

  2. Ohh Pippa! I think this is my favorite sock monkey so far! The pink cloth really make her black button eyes pop out! She's reallly cute!

    I can't wait to see your two other sock creatures!

    To conclude, Have a nice day! :)

  3. Thank you :o)

  4. Number 8 is adorable!! She is so pretty in pink and very talented!! Your number system gives them an important mystique, like secret agents. So before Number 8 was it 007?

    Edmund asked if he could call her sometime.

  5. My goodness, her moves are rather sensual, don't you think? "Number 8" is a lovely name.

  6. I seriously love them in pink!!!

  7. Thank you guys. These comments really do mean so much.

    Kim: Edmund can definitely call her. She was eyeing him up in his photographs and thinks he's rather dishy.
