Its SANTA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D


Thanks for coming back!

After the elves last time, I have now made Santas. First this little on was ordered.

And then I was asked for a big Santa. This is the first one I made (I only bought enough fluff for 1!)

But she didnt like the yellow sock so a quick finish of another sock and change of clothes and this green Santa was made.

I need to make another green one and will probably make the clothes for the yellow one and give to my kids as my daughter was quite taken with him. I also need to give Otis the Elf Sock Monkey new clothes and set him up on facebook for the kids! There are a few people doing this so he should have a few Elf friends!!! Yay, its not just me that is completely loopy!!! :P

And finally another order.

Going to have a weekend off (well, maybe just knitting some scarves) as I am a bit fed up of stabbing myself at the moment. So will try and get a Elf and 2 nanna's stuffed tonight and then work on the clothes next week.

See you soon. x

More Monkeys

Hello and thanks for coming back.

I have had a busy week. Finished the coats and hats for the Elf sock monkeys. And the dress for Miss Elf. Just waiting for the bells to arrive so I can finish the shoes and they are all done!

In the mean time I have made these for my friend. Each one has different coloured stripes on the arm.

And I bought a pack of 5 baby socks. I made these 2 out of it.

This stripey one was the prize in the draw on my facebook page.

Well, no rest for the wicked! Got more monkeys to make! Probably should do some housework as well at some point!!! :D

Pop by again soon x

The Elves are Coming

Hiya Everyone
Welcome back.
I havent got much done this week as I was a bit ill but I have managed to start on the Elf Sock Monkeys. Here they are - naked!
I have ordered the bells for the hats and shoes. And am off shopping tomorrow for material. I am hoping they will be finished this week.
In the mean time I have a set of 5 baby socks which are really colourful, stripes and spots which I am in the middle of making into monkeys and 3 sergeant sock monkeys for my mate. So should have lots more to put on here soon!
And on a final note - Wanda. Wanda hasnt managed to get up to any mischief as the kids wont put her down! My daughter even takes her into school! They take it in turns sleeping with her and cuddle her so tight she cant escape! Maybe this week she will find somewhere to hide to do her little tricks!!! :D
Hope to see you soon. x

Welcome back.
Wanda has been a bit quiet this week as we went away to see my sister and her little baby. He was 6 days old when we got there and they had only just come out of hospital! He was so tiny. Smaller than all of mine and smaller than his older sisters dolly!!! But so so so cute! And kids been busy with homework/parents evening and just recovering from the excitement of the weekend and next weekend (going to caravan but I think wanda might be getting up to a few things there!!!! :D)

Anyway, I have made a sock monster for my friends little boy who loved it (I hope she wasnt just being nice) and I made the mistake of showing my 3 who now all want one!

I only used 1 sock to made another one with the other sock, although I dont think he went as well. Needed more stuffing and I couldnt quite get him right! But he will go with something for a xmas present for my cousins little boy.

And I found a lovely pair of socks that I had to make into a monkey straight away! Dont think she has come out quite as well as I hoped she would but still I think she is alright!

I really do need to start on Otis's this week but need to find the material for his clothes and bells for him (so next week). So instead I started a sock cat draught excluder. I found the biggest pair of socks I had and have started her (did call it a him but dh said its pink so has to be a girl!!! :P) already. She is a bit lumpy as i used cut up old clothes so need to smooth her out and get her sewn up. I am also planning a sock dog draught excluder for the front door (guard dog! lol). Should have photos soon! And of course Wanda's exploits!! :D
As its my 10th wedding anniversary and am having a glass of fizzy wine I will love you and leave you.
Thanks for dropping by xxx
