You see they had a contest on their blog, and I was one of three winners. The prize? That Namaste Needlecase there. Nice, right? THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, Jan & Ellen!!!
Well. Then I stopped by the other night and discovered that Ellen had a Socktopus.
It's not called a Socktopus on the Ikea site, it's a Pressa. But as far as I can see I can't order one from the online store, I'd have to go to the nearest one (which is Charlotte NC, a mere 3 hours away). Well it happens I found mine on ebay, and it was a tad pricier than the Ikea one would have been, but I didn't have to either pay shipping OR drive 3 hours and buy a tank of gasoline.
And I LOVE my Socktopus...except: the hook on top is too narrow to fit my shower rod - Not to worry! I have an S-hook that I discovered will fit just fine! I decided I had to have it because The Tonk loves my drying rack to the point of insisting that it's REALLY his jungle gym...and his favorite time to climb it is the middle of the night. I keep it set up in my bedroom, of course, so you can imagine how fun it is to be awakened with a CRASH and then having to get up, pick up all the socks, rehang them and chastise the boy...and then try to get back to sleep?
So...those Twins! What WOULD I do without them?
