We all know that I love making things out of socks....NEW socks....which CAN lead to problems.  For example...MY socks that I wear are starting to become threadbare...everytime I buy a pair of socks I make them into something...thus rendering me...sockless.

Until now.

I just got a shipment of some fun socks to make some new beasties...but I can't seem to part with these socks...

LOOK AT THEM!!! They are manitees!!!!

I can't bring myself to cut them up...no matter how cute a monkey manitee would be...

I had Fans

Yup...At the Raven's Wing Zine and Craft Fair this past Sunday there were two lovely young ladies wandering around the Park with their sketch pad in hand.  (something I remember doing at their age)
I'm not going to lie...it took them about 4 times walking past me before I realized that they were twins.  The first came up and purchased a little monster from me.  Then, about 20 minutes later she came back to get another one.  I heard a mention about the sister and so assumed she was buying one for her sibling.
Nope...she was the sibling.  Didn't realize until I saw them both together.
ANYWAYS...they were celebrating their talents by offering up sketches...  They both did their rendition of me holding a monkey as well as some of my monsters.

Keep an eye out for these ladies...when they are older they want to open a Bakery called "Starving Artists"  Pretty awesome name I say!

Opeongo the Moose

Sock Moose (sock meese) aren't my favourite thing to make but I ALWAYS love the way they turn out...I made this guy a couple nights ago, but he has already gone to a new home somewhere in Ottawa after the Raven's Wing Zine and Craft sale.

Come Visit me...

Hey, what are all y'all Ottawa people doing this Sunday...

Oh, that's right...it is race weekend which probably means that you will have a lot of free time if you are out watching people run a bagillion kms.  And if you are RUNNING in said race.   Well you are crazy....but that is besides to point.

ANYWAYS...if you have some free time while you are watching said race...then you should head down to Minto Park off Elgin and come check out the Raven's Wing Craft and 'Zine fair!!!!

For some reason, everytime that I see this monkey I can't help but sing a song...
