Many weeks back, I bought 2 pairs of socks (pink & grey) from this lady who sells them on some weekends at the central market. She does not have a proper shop but just sets up some tables outside other shops along the walkway, not a legal operation I guess. I asked for long grey socks & she found me an ugly pair which I bought anyway as I could not find other nicer ones. Anyway, the socks cost only S$1 a pair, so can't complain.
I didn't buy those socks for wearing but for crafting purposes. I wanted to experiment making a sock animal...this:
*Hi, I'm Schnauzie*
I thought Schnauzie turned out pretty nicely. Really, I hadn't thought so while I was sewing it though, probably because I disliked the ugly grey socks in the first place & didn't think it'll work out.
In the meantime, I also made a bone bracelet & 2 rings. But as you can see above, Schnauzie has claimed the bone bracelet & is happily wearing it as a collar now. :)
Well, now that I'm left with one pink sock, I need more grey ones to make another Schnauzer...
...Even Schnauzie here thinks so too & is urging me to get started...
...& so I headed back to the central market in search of the sock lady but alas, no luck. She was not there the past few weekends. Hmm...when will you be back sock lady? I can't very well use those worn ones with toe jam on them, can I (oh, gross!)? Dear Schnauzie would never agree, you know...
