When I decided 2 years ago that I wanted to start sewing, I started with projects I could sew by hand. One day while Nate and I were out I found a book called Sock and Glove and decided that would be a good way to start to see if I enjoyed it.
I tried my hand at the sock monkey in the book a few times.
I found those white men’s socks hard to work with and they just weren’t soft. I made one for myself, one for one of Nate’s co-workers and recently made this fellow.
I found a soft heavy wool sock this time and it was such a pleasure to work with. I made this one for another one of Nate’s co-workers. She wanted one for a family member. I remember the first times I made one it was a LONG day of sewing. This time it only took an afternoon. I guess that means I’m getting better 🙂 I really enjoyed making this one, probably because it was so soft.
Maybe now I’m ready to try some of the other sock animals that are featured in the book – maybe.
