At my school, older children learn to knit socks. One child brought in a book about making sock creatures. I was intrigued. I'd seen something like this via a dudecraft sponsor, Neuron Rebellion. (These days I've got neurons on the brain... ha ha!) After an evening spent ogling Neurons and laughing at their stories (favorite look: Aubrey; favorite story: Lunchpail), I decided it was time to clean out my sock drawer and make my own.
So I did! This is my sock imp, created from a knee sock that lost its mate who-knows-when.
He's stuffed with Poly-Fil, cannot stand on his own and enjoys making faces from his perch atop my sewing supply drawers. And the best part? He's done in one sitting :-)
