I made a new sock monster named Trigger Muligany, for Valentine's Day.  He has on a "shirt" that has an old school tattoo style heart with the word "Forever" across the banner.

Recently I found the book “Stupid Sock Creatures” by John Murphy and I fell in love!  I was so inspired by the book that now I’ve begun teaching myself how to sew, by hand and with a sewing machine, so I could start making my sock monsters!

These particular naughty sock monsters I make are not baby safe.  There are buttons and brads and rings and other tiny pieces to choke on.

I have morphed the suggestions and patterns into my own designs.  I have made about 13 naughty sock monsters, I just have to learn how to take photos of them now.  Any suggestions would be helpful!

This woman is my hero!  She is the woman who knit the sweaters and mittens in Coraline - http://www.bugknits.com/  - She also sells the thinnest knitting needles I have ever seen!

I am actually working on getting a group of women together for a local support group.  I live in a pretty rural area, and the support groups here are all 12 step programs and extremely religious based(not that there's anything wrong with that!), but I am an atheist, soooo, that doesn't really work for me.  I spoke to a few other women I have met that feel the same way, but it can be difficult getting a bunched of depressed people to actually leave their homes!  There is a local co-operative gallery that I am sure would be interested in collaborating once our group actually gets up and running.  They recently did a show of survivors of child abuse and child molestation, heavy show.  Anyway, thanks for the suggestions!
7  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Bipolar Women Crafting to Heal on: January 10, 2010 02:42:56 PM
I was diagnosed as having bipolar disorder a few years ago and since I have been lost.  I had owned an art gallery and custom frame shop for 15 years, but could not emotionally or physically be self-employed any longer.

I have been knitting since I was 13. When I started knitting, the patterns I found were mostly pure cheese, bad 80's sweaters, tacky but not in a good way. So I stopped knitting for a long time. Now, finally a younger generation has begun to use knitting as an art form and I was inspired by the books “DomiKNITrix” and “AntiCraft” to start knitting again, but recently I found “Stupid Sock Creatures” by John Murphy and I fell in love!  I was so inspired by the book that now I am teaching myself how to sew, by hand and with a sewing machine, so could start making my sock monsters!

So now, I make stuff. Handmade little oddities.  I think of myself as being good with my hands.  I'm crafty.  I found that creating has really helped with my depression and have been trying to figure out a way to share that with other women who are suffering with depression.  I guess I am asking for ideas for recruiting other artists, actually for any ideas that might help.

I started a website at crazygirljournals.com, for Bipolar Disorder support and a place to show my monsters - http://www.crazygirljournals.com/Therapy/Sock_Monsters_files/TriggerMuliganyviews.jpg
