The Black Hole of Laundry Day

So I lost a sock to the dryer this week. I HATE when that happens – AND I refuse to trash the widowed sock whose worth is now absolutely nothing.

Luckily(!) I have this book: Lost Sock! by Cynthia Copeland. From it I learn that sock monkeys date back to the early 1900s (for instructions on how to make your own sock monkey visit or contact ME for your own custom-designed monkey!) and that the Sock Lady of South Strafford, Vermont recycles old socks into one-of-a-kind rugs.

It is also full of ideas for how to repurpose single socks. I don't need have any golf clubs in need of covers and my bra doesn't need instant enhancement. I also don't have any naked Barbies lying around. BUT, I do have (strike that, make that did have) a rather nude troll, in desperate need of a sweater.

VOILA! — Warm troll, and no sock left behind!
