This is the first blog post of two about some fantastic books that I've been reading recently. I've never really owned any craft books before but I am definitely going to start amassing a collection now, even if it's just to look at the pictures in them for inspiration! I got the book Sock and Glove for Christmas and it's ace, I've never made any sock animals before but have always wanted to have a go.
There's so many cute animals to make, including a dog, a cat, a monkey, a rabbit, a pig, and a bird and the best bit is the instructions are really simple to follow and are mainly just pictures.
I went straight out and bought some socks and a pair of gloves, and made the dog from the front cover of the book and the elephant.
