Rodriguez is my first ever stray sock creature and it was love at first site with us. He was made especially for my friend Sandra who bought me a most wonderful book for my birthday called Stupid Sock Creatures . I love his lovely button eyes and his wavy scarf. Rodriguez is going to undoubtedly be the first of many sock creatures. For three reasons - he was lovely to make, he is adorable finished and now Sandra has leant me another sock creature book and I am fighting off the urge to shelve my current project to make more!
