The eighth and last pattern in John Murphy's book, Stupid Sock Creatures. I think this one's my favourite so far. Now I'm ready to branch out into my own designs. I like making them because (a) they're fast: about two hours from go to whoa when entirely stitched by hand (b) they're free (well, OK, I did go to Big Lots a few days ago and get some dollar pairs of socks) and (c) they elicit smiles from myself and others. What's not to love?
