Ok, firstly, I hope this is in the right spot, it's not really a craft, but it is vintage, so yeah.

I'm on a big sock monkey kick right now and I was over at my Grammas house tonight, and she gave a How to Make Sock Toys book. It's from 1958 and has LOTS of sock patterns, from the good old sock monkeys to bunnies to pigs to kids.

So I thought I'd go ahead and see if anyone would be interested in some of the patterns. I have access to a scanner, but for right now I've just taken some pictures with my webcam (Hence the backwardedness of the photos, sorry!) to give you an idea. If anyone wants I can also make a list of all the patterns tomorrow and then if you see something that interests you then I can scan that pattern.

Anyways, onto my backwards photos!

The cover:
(Apparently sock toys are perfect for not only bazaars, gifts and profits, but shut-ins like them too!)


Sock bunny:


Some sort of Hula Sock Girl:


Various sock people:


And of course, the sock monkey:


Sock Kangaroo and baby kangaroo, chimpmonk and begging dog:

When I read this and then saw the picture of the cover, I about fell out of my chair!!  I'm still giggling writing this! So funny and insensitive and bizarre!  Shocked

Sorry everybody! I've been busy with work and didn't get a chance to upload the patterns this week. I'm hoping to do it tomorrow though.
I'll send out messages to those who requested patterns as soon as I get them up.

*waves hands around desperately* I'd love a copy of the patterns too! *grin* That is, if it's okay. I'm just starting to delve into the world of sock monkey's.. they're so cute!
