Harry the Sock Monster
In honor of a Socktopia contest, the kids and I made a Sock Monster. His name is Harry. Do you like him? He was first a "Fanny" sock, the April Socktopia pattern. I liked the pattern a lot, but the yarn I chose was nicer on the ball than it turned out to be once I knitted it up. And somehow, I had the ribbing wrong, and it was very large and looked like a strange ruffle on the top of the sock. So, some felt, some googly eyes, and some pipe cleaners (or the more P.C. "Chenille stems") and there you go, sock monster for Halloween.
