Well, I did it...made a sock monkey! She is funky - her name is Mabel. It was really easy, I can't believe the whole thing was made out of 1 pair of socks! It took me about 3 hours...not like me to go to bed at 12:30, but I was on a roll and wanted to finish her! Not bad for a $2 pair of socks! Now that I know it works I will keep my eyes open for cool socks on my travels!Go here to find the instructions I followed to make Mabel. They were really easy to follow and had big clear photos to help.
