Sock Monkey!

Okay, so I think there is an eesny weensy tiny possibility that I just might be nesting. SO! I have decided to make a sock monkey.

I don't have a sewing machinge (well I do, several actually, but not a one of them made it on the cross country trip to Hicksville) so I will be making it the old fashioned way!

I am SOOOOOO excited!!

I also found a pattern (I almost said recipe, oops!) for a sock ELEPHANT. Cute!
So now all I have to do is destroy some socks (and maybe a pillow for stuffing!) and voila! a comfort object for the nursery!

We find out on Monday if the little tyke is a boy or a girl, and I can't wait to start getting things ready. People keep asking me what our "theme" is going to be. (Babies come with themes??) I want it to be DINOSAURS. My husband is skeptical of this. He thinks that girls don't like dinosaurs. But I do! I guess I don't count.

<--- This little bugger begs to differ!

I am already toying with the idea of a sockosaurii experiment. I think I'll try my hand at the Monkey just to get the hang of it. Who knows, may be IU (Identity Unknown) will have a sock baby collection. HA! I like the idea of it...
