So, last night, there I was pottering on my pc. I relisted some items on my Etsy shop (it's kind-of a virtual way of re-arranging your shop to give people a view of stuff that might have been on the back shelves for a while and now should be at the front). Then I carried on pottering. Just logging off for bed and... A Sale! One of the re-listed items had sold during that hour or so. I am so pleased. It's a UK sale too, so hopefully it will arrive by Christmas Eve (though she didn't say it was a gift).
Here is is, all wrapped and ready to post on Monday morning (in a jiffy-bag, obviously!).
And I finally finished this:
A Sock Bunny!
See her pose for the camera? She's so sweet...
Don't you love her fluffy crochet tail? I made it from white wool and some great pink & green fuzzy yarn.
And I finally found just the right pink, flowery button for her nose!
I think this young lady will be a Christmas gift, for J's good friend who lives round the corner. She was enthusing about all the sock pets I had made (before I sold them all!), so I think she would appreciate one of her own.
I've been trying so hard to find another pair of those soft chenille striped socks, to make another Zebra for J's Christmas. Can't find any black and white ones now. Wish I had bought several pairs.
I had just decided, a couple of weeks ago, that I would take him out of the shop and give him a home with us, but too late - he was sold, along with his friend the leopard. The lady is delighted with them, so that's great. But I still can't find chenille b&w striped socks...
Peacocks had some b&w striped socks, but they were that kind-of shiny fuzzy stuff (like the rabbit tail), rather than the snuggly soft chenille. I dont think they would make a good zebra at all. I do have some "normal" acrylic yarn striped socks, but somehow it's not the same... that zebra was soo soft and J. loved him.
