i love you this much

arms spread out like an airplane
monster number two
is no 'runway' model
(oh how corny)
but with freakishly long legs and a short torso
he will always tell you
from sock nub to sock nub
he's gonna save it all for you.


I thought this was the one

the one that would
make me say
'ok, you're done.'
but it wasn't.
wait til you see
whats next.
there is a plan-
just need to make
3 more.
maybe I'll be done.*SOLD*

ok so I'm obsessive

I got a good deal on some socks.
I'm selling these as fast as I make them.

I really do make jewelry,
I swear.

The new blogger has me
and my blogging all screwed up.
Trying to get my page half decent.

some serious teeth

This one is really odd.
Even my dog thought so.
I really liked these socks,
I was going to keep them to wear.
But Adrien gets
what Adrien wants.
Does she want this one?


My aunt sent me this photo of my grandfather.
He lived in the U.P. of Michigan.
I wish I knew him better.
Like why was he wearing a bearskin on his head,
and why does it look so normal?


well the show is over...
I sold the mini monkey and this
large weird bunny before the doors even opened.
Its a really odd picture,
but I do scrunch up nicely and it's comfortable.
So I SOLD OUT of all creatures knit or made of socks.
Even the dinosaur left me.
It was a long day but the bands were rockin'
and roller derby chicks are always cool.
The oddest thing was that everyone
squeezed the crap out of my knit creatures.
Like they were trying to find a dog squeaker in them.
I also noticed it was mostly men
who understood my Pluto t-shirts and laughed.
I only sold one shirt to Pluto sympathizer
it's ok, I really wanted to keep one for myself.

many thx

I would like to personally thank the a-hole from India who left a mile long comment of links to crap and then left a second one. Having to scroll and delete, rinse and repeat- was the highlight of my day.


a purple one

oh man am I tired.
I'm just cranking this stuff out
left and right.
I think I got about a week and a half left
til the big deal
be there or be square.

Yes he's mocking you

I thought this would be a nice sock monster,
considering he's all flowery.
Little did I know,
he got an attitude overnight.
Musta been talking to the chewed up dog toys.

my first fish

and my last.
My father refused to cook it,
told me to throw it back before I killed it.
I lost all passion for fishing.
I mainly liked digging up worms for bait.
And yes, that is the one and only
"Pocket Fisherman."

I almost failed out of my jewelry class

Its true.
9am class and I couldn't
or wouldn't get out of bed.
who is creative at 9am?
I fought a lot with my teachers.
I'm almost positive they hated me a bit.
I didn't want to talk about
'what it meant.'
I just wanted to make stuff.

planetary love

it's my meager attempt at letting pluto know
I won't forget.

my first press appearance

Well its a first, even though I was not named.
(i'm not complaining- still grateful for any exposure)
These were the 'shady ladies'.
The beauties I chose were real badasses:
Baby Doe Tabor
Belle Starr
Etta Place with the Sundance Kid
All the names are linked back to my personal shots of each piece
and also have a description of these lovely ladies stories.

introducing a bunny

I'm letting a lot of pictures slide by that normally
I would not accept to be posted.
I have so much work to do that I can't (won't) spend
mucho time on getting the best shot.
*that means it looks better in person*

sterling silver bunny on heat treated copper.

thx to whomever sent me the finger monster.
I've forgotten who it was.

devil dog

In honor of halloween this devious creature
has emerged from a pair of socks.
He's not as evil, as he is strange.

This creature if accepted, will be one of the raffle entries
at The Atomic Holiday Bazaar

I am the mightiest mouse.

Some one out there has this necklace.
The day I see it again will be a happy day.

ring ring ring

its time to make the rings.
They require much more attention than necklaces.
There are only a few who can wear each ring.
I will not size them.
I like to think of it as finding the easter egg
with your name on it.

oh lordy!

The one thing that makes my heart ache
is when my friend a.k.a The Molecule
sends me car art from out west.
I just about packed my bags
when I saw this beauty...

a bonafide jesus beater


courtsey of Google Maps
This is where Im at right this very instant.
I love the satellite feature.
so cool.
I'm right past the mandatory flood insurance boundary
wind insurance however is required.

weird bunny

still waiting for the weather to chill out.
and for myself to chill out.
I'm having some sort of mental fit.


sidetracked by monkeys

oh no. I've gone off the deep end for these sock monkeys.
It's a good thing I live in Florida
and there aren't many socks around.
I'm going to try to stop.
really I am.


frog bag

ok so I wasn't done with knitting I guess.
I don't know how to knit.
I can only knit straight needles.
no fancy patterns for me.
I'm what they call "an angry knitter".
I swear a lot especially in the beginning.
Oh and I always knit 'too tight' I'm told (hence the swearing).
I found the pattern here thx Arlene!

the green dinosaur that nearly killed me

Actually it's a Brachiosaurus,
for all you dino lovers out there.
It took me forever to knit.
Onward to mini sock monkeys!


I knit an alien

I found the pattern online but for the life of me I can't remember or find where it was from. I would like to give credit to the 'unidentified alien pattern giver'.
I fudged the feet because I'm not a knitter I just play one on tv.
I made a tag for him that says

*will be for sale at the atomic holiday bazaar*

handmade sterling silver pendant with copper heart
with sterling silver snake chain


yes that is a lean-to of alpo dog treats
(incase you were wondering)

pearl pod

Sterling silver pendant, freshwater pearls
rubber cord.

to get a better visual on how this piece functions go here


TIP: the glue on the rubber cord ends only lasts about a year, so drill a hole and put a rivet through the end clasps and the cord.
Sometimes taking the extra time to do things like this, makes all the difference.
