A Month of Softies July – Sock it to me!

A Month of Softies for June is now officially closed. Thank you for all the wonderful “June Bug” contributions… but now it is time to move on to July and the new theme which is “Sock it to me! – a World of Sock Monkeys”.
I really like the idea of everyone following the one pattern and coming up with all sorts of different and personal interpretations – but of course I will be as relaxed as usual about how you choose to take part. If you feel more inclined to make a monkey out of something other than socks, or you feel like using socks to make something other than monkeys you can rest assured that I will welcome them in to July’s gallery (which will go online some time in the distant future after May and June have been updated!).

Here are some Sock Monkey resources:

Sock Monkey Socks
(NB. I have never ordered socks from this site so I have no idea what the service etc. is actually like)

Make sure you have a look at Peng-Peng Sock Monkeys when she updates her site in the next 24 hours.

A great sounding book about the collection of Ron Warren who collects sock monkeys – and here is a link to an exhibition from 2002 by the photographer Arne Svenson which includes a few snaps of the monkeys in the book.
