Hi everyone.  Here goes, after much lurking my first project post.  Yippee.
Feel free to read the story or just scroll to the pics.
I am currently home from work after an abdominal hysterectomy...(15 staples!)  Not allowed to do any housework (woe is me. Wink)  I have been home for a week and am getting quite stir crazy.  so I decided to have a go at a sock creature.  I massacred the tutorial from here.http://www.craftbits.com/viewProject.do?projectID=1104 Which despite my funny looking girl is extremely easy to follow.  Didn't have enough fabric left for the ears so I gave her dreadlocks instead.  I think I will give her to my friend's sister who is having her first baby just before Christmas.
I would love any feedback.  Thanks.

First pic: Here she is on my dog haired couch.

Second pic: outside in our camelia tree (she's a cheeky little monkey)

I really like her.  The dreadlocks give her personality.  Keep up the socktastic work and heal well!

Everybody here is gentle except for one for two who are just dicks, so if you ever run across them, just don't pay attention.  You sockie is just adorable and looks just fine to me.  I can't see how you did anything wrong.  Tutorials are not always meant to be followed to the "t" anyway, just to show you how it's mostly done and then you tweek it for yourself.  I can always figure out how to make it easier, I think that's the laziness in me.  LOL  Great job and keep on keepin' on

She is really really cute! And I love her dreadlocks Wink she doesn't need ears anyway!

Maybe I am wrong, but are those eyes buttons? Before you give your darling sockie to a baby you may replace them with embroidered ones. It definitely is a lovely present!

Thanks munk-munk.  I have to re-think the baby present.  My five year old sun has kidnapped the sockie and refuses to return her.  I am just glad she is a hit!
