I'm getting a bag of mismatched socks from free-cycle tomorrow and I'm so excited. I've been eyeing sock monkeys now for about 6 months. I finally feel like I"m ready to try it. I found a book, actually checked it out from the library, about socks and gloves. Naturally, that week all the pairs showed up in the laundry. Then I took it back to the library, and the dryer monster ate half the socks. Go figure. So this time, I'm doing it. I'll search craftster for some tut's and link them here. Any tips would be appreciated and I'd LOVE to see your pics on flickr! Link here in your comments!
