So, I recently received this book: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/160061907X/ref=s9_simi_gw_s0_p14_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=05A8YCM4EVAKQZNF44Y4&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=470938631&pf_rd_i=507846 from my sister.  It has loads of really cute, and not too complicated stuffed friends to make, all with socks! 

So, my favorite of the bunch is this squirrel, and I've set out to make a lot of them.  Made this lil one today in only a few hours.  The pattern requires baby socks, so she's kind of tiny  Smiley  Also- it says to use a more plush-like sock, but I couldn't find any at my local Target store... also said to flip the socks inside out, which I did... upon later realizing they said to do that in order to see the terry cloth insides of those plush socks >_<!  Oh well...

Anyway, enough rambling.

Oh, as a side note- you're supposed to also sew an acorn and have it dangling from the arms, but I didn't feel like buying an expensive pair of socks, just for some brown material  Tongue  So I left it out  Grin

Thanks for looking!!  ...more to come...
