Another sock animal  
I'm sure y'all are tired of them by now, but I have another sock animal! (I bought a book with different animals in it a couple of weeks ago.) This one is a cat, which hopefully is obvious :D

I bought a few more socks at Target the other day (Target has fantastic socks, for the record) and they don't break the bank. My goal is to make probably one of each animal, and then go from there. Does anyone by chance want a sock animal? I'd be happy to give them away.

Anyway, onto the kitty!

The pattern didn't actually call for whiskers, but he looked so bare without them...

OMG, that is hilariously adorable! I want to squeeze it!

Points up. What she says. =)

The best part is you can also make black cats, as black socks are fairly common.

Hee! Yes, I can. And I probably will. Maybe send some out around Halloween ;)

Hee! He is very cute and huggable. I can also do an owl, squirrel, rabbit, elephant, bear, dog, monkey, and.. crocodile. I don't know if I left one out or not... Plus I can add wings to anything, and possibly other attributes. Perfect cuddle things.

Thank you! I'm enjoying this far too much :)

I haven't, no. I have considered it, but I don't know if there would be enough interest? I'm going to have to do something with them, though, if I keep making them.

You could always open up on Etsy with a "Sock Menagerie"... :D
Gelseygelsey on July 8th, 2012 08:07 am (UTC)
Hmmm yes I could. Maybe once I get one of each, I'll do that! I have a few ideas to make more - I think I can probably do a lion based off the cat, for example.

Utterly adorable!

Thank you! It's too much fun :)

Any chance a sock opossum could be in the works someday? ^_^
Gelseygelsey on July 9th, 2012 01:20 am (UTC)
Hee! I'm sure I can come up with something, yes. Your favorite, huh? Anyting is possible, with enough tweaking...

I love opossums! I know it's weird, and I can't entirely pin down exactly when these quirky little marsupials first nuzzled their way into my heart, but I take great pride in my wee collection of stuffed opossums and opossum puppets :D

You do owls, too? Have you already posted pictures of those? I can't believe how much you can do with socks!!
Gelseygelsey on July 9th, 2012 02:16 am (UTC)
Hee! They can be very cute when they're not being roadkill. And there's a funny commercial on TV with them right now. I will see what I can do about coming up with something :D

There is an owl pattern in the book I bought. I need an appropriate sock for one. I should go by the dollar place and see.

There's just something about sock animals... Of course, my first toy ever was the sock monkey my mother made me.

~squints~

Crookshanks!

Oooooooo - I wonder if you could do Fluffy or the Giant Squid or a Blast-Ended Skrewt?

And, um, me! I'll take one/any if you're not doing Etsy.
Gelseygelsey on July 9th, 2012 09:52 pm (UTC)
He does sort of look like Crooks, doesn't he? Hee!

I know there's an octopus pattern out there somewhere, though I don't know how many socks it would call for. Fluffy would be a challenge, with three heads, but I'm sure with some fiddling it could be worked out.

Good to know! I will keep you in mind :)

Aww, he's cute!!
Gelseygelsey on July 19th, 2012 11:24 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I actually thought of you when I made him, because the sock pattern reminded me of a "tabby." ;)
Tabbywhy_me_why_not on July 21st, 2012 12:36 am (UTC)
perfect :)

I love the sock kitty! How much would you charge for one?
Gelseygelsey on July 20th, 2012 01:04 am (UTC)
I actually have no idea what I should charge for this type of thing :P Any suggestions for a reasonable price?
