Me-ow! Y'all, meet Fluffy. She's the newest sock monster around here. I made her from a pair of knee-highs that I bought on clearance at Old Navy a while back planning to wear myself some time and never did. They look much better on her than they did on me, anyway. Here she is keeping our back door free of unwanted vermin.
Fluffy is an ingratiating little kitty. She's been spending her time trying to snuggle with Simon and Jackie, who are so far somewhat reluctant to accept her into their tribe. I think they may be put off by all the glitter. That hasn't stopped her, though. One reason I think they are annoyed with her is that she won't stop messing with their stuff.

Simon and Jackie can rest easy, however, because Fluffy won't be around for long. I'm going to be sending her off to my swapping buddy in the Use What You Have "made stuff" swap. Fluffy will be getting her vaccinations soon for a long international flight.
I have lots of sock left over from Fluffy, since she began as a pair of knee-highs, so I'm planning to use these great socks again in comination with a pair of striped socks my sister gave me recently. I like the idea of a striped sock monster wearing a striped sweater.
If you're thinking high fashion (as I obviously am), you know you need to boogie over to Bugheart and check out what's on offer FREE this week on the Great Monday Give-Away.
peace out, y'all.
