Memorial Odd Sock Day

Yes today is Memorial Day for all them odd socks that got away!

Odd socks on the line

Its a mystery ? They go into the washing machine and are never seen again. Perhaps there’s a black hole they go in putting my head in the washer 👀 Can’t see anything haha.

The story goes they turn into sock monsters and come and bite your toes at night. May be it’s really because your feet are cold and you can’t find any socks to wear. Perhaps the dogs eaten them ?

Read all about it ! The phantom sock snatchers at large. Police are hunting for him he’s gone into hiding. Last seen in the tumbler drier and acting suspicious. No evidence found looks like he’s sock free.

The sock draw .. That’s it I remember now it’s in here some where. Sure I washed them together or maybe I left it in the basket ? I love them socks. Looking through I found 20 odd socks ? are these the ones I thought was odd last time I had a sort out. The mind boggles.

I like odd socks. Perhaps I can wear them odd pink And blue match. Start a new trend what do you think! Them odd socks won’t go to waist.I will make lovely odd sock monkeys with them 🐵 That’s maybe how they got lost in the first place the monkeys had them. So happy Memorial odd sock day have fun and don’t lose your socks.

Odd Socks

welcome to my blog

I came across these strange socks when looking for something different to make my monkeys ! I loved them they come in packs but every single one is a different pattern no two the same the make is called United odd socks

Think I like them because they are bright and colourful. I remember the first sock monkey I made they put it on there face book page. Gratitude indeed you may say ! yah fame at last haha .


To make a monkey I need a pair of socks and they make packs of three so My odd sock as I call him was made from the sock left over with a couple of other socks I found . My odd sock was born he sits in my bedroom with my other monkeys I have created . I have made a few now out of this make of sock even a miss odd sock . Just purchased some new ones so can’t wait to make them up.


Update Odd sock was two on the 26th march

what is an odd sock you know when a pair goes in the washing machine and only one comes out funny how that happens ! That gave me another idea to make monkeys out of them . One of my customers and friend sent me some of her granddaughters odd socks and I made her two monkey loved them that was quite a few years ago now before I CE tested them.I must ask has she still got them ? Great idea for keep sakes !

The thing about these odd sock monkeys everyone has been different even though they are all odd socks they are unique and made by me. Thanks for reading my blog . Please watch out for the new odd sock monkeys if you would like one only make a few .
