6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / What happens to those missing socks? on: April 13, 2011 06:50:24 PM
 It is an age old question that my brother attempted to answer to his seven year old daughter. When my niece told me the story of the GREEN MONSTER crochet inspiration struck

I whipped him up in just a couple of days about 6 months ago. he was the perfect use of all my scraps of cotton yarn and was a lot of fun to make cause i just made him up as i went along. the sock are made with felt scraps accented with sharpie. My niece and brother loved it. He proudly resides on the bookself in her bedroom.
