My god, 2 posts in one day but holidays can do that to you. As we have had a few country trips of late and I find it easier to knit in the car Mel was born. At first I thought I was making a Teenage Mutant Ninga Turtle. Funny how limbs can help.
If you have not been to Monkee Makers blog head straight over there she is the funniest person so in her quest for monkey domination I thought a monkee made of knit could have some adventures in Adelaide. The family had a meeting and we came up with the name Mel(so named after the very sexy Mel Gibson). As today was such a beautiful day Mel thought it would be good to go to the beach. Mel was a little apprehensive at first and thought a walk up the jetty would be good before going down on the sand. Please note Tony standing up the jetty trying to look like he is not with the strange women taking photos of the monkee.
Mel liked what he saw and decided to do a bit of sun baking I tried to talk him out of it as I am very conscious of the suns effect but he just wouldn't listen. He did apply some sun screen then when I looked around he had a can of beer opened this was also a concern as we all know the real Mel has a tinsy winsy drink problem and Australian beaches are dry zones so he was just asking for trouble.
I had to be very careful taking these photos as here in Oz if you get caught on the beach taking photos you get dragged off the beach your camera confiscated and the hard drive on your computer checked. I was quite confident I would be able to talk my way out of a pedophile charge however taking photos of a monkee made of knit might lead to a stint in the nearest psych hospital.
