Sock Puppet Time!

Ever wonder what to do with those odd socks, you know the odd left foot sock, the one the dryer monster happily ate the mate of? After searching high and low and finally surrendering to never finding that pair, don’t throw away Mr. Left Sock. Why not find another mismatched sock, we know you have another somewhere in the deep belly of your drawer, and make a sock monster? Perhaps by making one of these bad boys and placing it on your dryer it will be scared into thinking all the odd socks it eats turn into monsters, back from the dead to haunt it! Hey we’re superstitious over here, and always looking for any solution to beating the dryer monster!
