"Sock it to Me! - A World of Sock Monkeys"

Stripus McGreenley

Wednesday, July 13, 2005

Meet Mr. Stripus McGreenley
July's Month of Softies theme is "Sock it to me - the World of Sock Monkeys." I swear Claire and I are on the same wavelength, because I always love her themes, and sometimes her themes overlap with ideas already rolling around in my head. I've been meaning to make a sock monkey for some time.

I bought two pairs of ankle socks at Walmart (not a W empire fan, but we were taking Grandma there last week on her request). Since the socks were short, I bought two pair, I was hoping make that work. Yup, but Stripus is tailess. A Manx monkey, so to speak.

I followed these directions and made him this morning while I watched From Russia With Love. A little monkeymaking to get myself back in the groove before I did my (modicum of) client work.

I completely fell in love with Stripus as I made him! I totally get the Sock Monkey Love Thing.
