Halloween Monkey? Toto Knits Animal Sweater

AUCTION HAS ENDED. The winner is TRENCE MARSHALL. This one's for Carol.This item really gets me. Not only is it the most adorable hand-knitted monkey animal sweater imaginable, but it has been donated by Toto Knits, which is a collective of Kenyan single-moms knitting to provide for their families. That they are sparing something for this auction is amazing. Think about it: a mom in need made this by hand; now it's being passed on to help someone else. Stats: hand spun wool in a darling cheeky monkey design. Complete with ears and tails and ethically made in the outskirts of Nairobi. Size 6 months. And please, go to TotoKnits, peeps. They have STUNNING designs, from animals to classic with stripes. Just gorgeous.
*Generously donated by Toto Knits.
Retail value: $75. Bidding starts at $25. Don't know how to bid? Check the rules. And don't miss the auctions still ongoing. SCROLL DOWN...

$25. Sprout needs a Halloween costume and she just graduated to 3-6 mos clothing. Sweet.

chicken, you knew I'd come get you again. And since you're breastfeeding and can't concentrate properly...hmmmm...$30.

While I agree that breastfeeding and childrearing make me hazy at best, I've shaken out the cobwebs long enough to up my bid to $36, which is the Hebrew number that represents "double life." No joke.
