Sock Monkeys and so on...


Having a summer job is hard work, at least where I work. I've even worked 13hour shifts and after that I really knew what working feels like.
I went through my old closet whre I have my party dresses and under a box I found old socks and stockings. I did some surfing and found a doll pattern and of course the traditional sock monkey patterns.And he is made out of my old stockings (I used them about ten years ago)
My three-year-old little borther made a sock doll for his friend. He even used my sewing machine. And Ithis normally oh so lively little young man was so concentrated on what he was doing that he hardly noticed anything else.I hope his friend likes her new doll.

Best wishes!

ps. I have a new idea for my new knitting pattern (and I probably will have something for you in a couple of weeks. My real holiday begins next monday)
