John Murphy's sock creations have been featured in such publications as the Washington Post and Readymade magazine. Crafters with a sense of humor, a taste for the weird, wacky, and way-out, and a hunger for the outrageous will find themselves captured by this wildly creative menagerie of sock monsters.

Possessed of irresistible charm, these creatures offer all the inspiration anyone needs to transform cast-off socks into wickedly funny toys. There's Claude with his perplexed expression and tiny tail that stands at full attention. Jordan's always on the prowl; he's got three eyes, so nothing escapes him. And there's something really odd about Estelle. Maybe it's her silly conical head balanced precariously on four tiny feet--or perhaps it's just that she's always sticking out her bright red tongue. Great instructions and charming illustrations make it easy to bring these unique personalities to life. A Selection of the Crafters Choice Book Club .

Remember those sock monkeys that everybody''s grandma or great aunt made for the kiddies back in the 60''s? The ones made from grey work socks that had a red heel in it that transformed into a wide grin? Well, they''re back! And they are more demented looking than you can imagine! Try doing a three-eyed horned handful that has teeth, and attitude. Each one is so individual that you can''t help but make 2 or 3, but beware, the more you make the more chances you have to find mayhem as a bi-product. At least that''s what their expressions imply, and I wouldn''t be at all surprised to find my living room a smoldering wreck after I come home one day...
