Sock monkey

As soon as I saw the sock monkeys Little Miss Flossy made, I wanted to make one myself.  It’s taken me a while because not one shop in the town where I live sells socks. Not one.  I checked them all.  Mind you, round here, people are still going to the supermarket in bare feet, so maybe there’s not much demand for socks.

In the end, I asked my friends in Auckland to take pity on me and send me some socks, and I have finally made my first sock monkey.  Here he is.

    Oh he’s cute! Get your friends to visit Farmers – they have a great selection. What I’d give to live somewhere where you could still go barefoot to the supermarket!

    I’ll show you how to make them when I’m in the UK, boo.

    Thanks for the inspiration, Floss – I loved your sock monkeys. I’m hoping to get to a farmers myself this weekend if I can face the three hour drive.

    I can’t believe people are still going to the supermarket in bare feet in winter; it makes me shiver just looking at them!
