I think I didn't show you those yet...

My Buccaneers Booty Socks have been done for a while now, I just did not find the time to post them here yet.

I dyed the red myself and the black are overdyed leftovers - not really solid black now, but I like it.

What I did not like about those socks was the fair isle part, it is nothing I enjoy. I really like the results, but the process is making me to go insane.

And this adorable little monster has been made for my son as part of a Crochet-A-Long on Ravelry. We had a basic receipe for those little guys and I decided to add fun fur as crazy hair and mismatched buttons for the eyes.

Otherwise, I kept it simple because it is supposed to be a toy for a 3 year old - I don't want to risk any choking or other injuries.

Next time we can do our socks in tandem - I loved the fair isle part - the other sock part, I found a little boring. I'll do the fair isle for you, you can do the other for me :)

sounds fine... but that would be an expensive pair of socks considering the shipping costs from Germany to the US and back ;)
