So I posted some Sock Monkey instructions to see what would happen - and what's happening is socks all over the place are taking on a new sort of life. I am particularly glad that I didn't explain how to make the ears, because it really truly does not matter. In fact, it's good not to worry to much about the whole thing, if it doesn't come out as a monkey, it will surely be something else.
Please go and have a look at Parskot the Sock Cat, made by Kasia in Edinburgh one rainy afternoon. And while you're looking, check out the other creatures she's made appear in the world. She even made some beetroot mice happen by some sort of magic.
That made me happy.
