The return of the Sock Monkey

I've come across a number of articles lately on sock monkeys. I know that they are adorable, however, they have taken on a life of their own, as designers push the medium to the extreme!! Here is a dress made of sock monkeys.

And another take on it from Rebecca Yaker.

Finally there is the more artistic side on display at the Mendel Art Gallery in Saskatchewan.

Here artist, Trace Nelson, has created a huge collection of weird and wonderful monkeys, some with three heads, for your enjoyment. They are wonderful - just click on the Mendel link to see more.

As an aside, please note the pom poms on this big guy. I have said before that pom poms are an art form and Clover has the most artistic pom pom makers this side of Saskatoon :) Check them out on our site, by keying pom pom into the search engine at
