Long Weekends, Happy Mondays, Sock Pets and Skateboarding

So it was a long but good weekend, I had an unexpected holiday on Saturday. It was lovely, I got to hang out with some of my Chinese University friends. Well yesterday as always was a long Sunday full of long classes. However, this particular Sunday night dragging myself up the 97 steps to our apartment at 7 pm, was not the end. There was a party at school for the teachers and I had to be there. Well it wasn't bad, but the walk home was rather chilly. It hasn't gotten far above freazing the past three days and I have this feeling that it won't be warm again till spring. Ah well, such is life in Harbin. At any rate I got to have lunch with my good friend Punk today and we had a lovely walk in the coooooooold outside afterwords. P.S. I got a scateboard last week and I'm very excited to learn its wonderfull ways.

Yes I was practicing in the house :)

A friend of mine who lives Glasgow makes adorable sock animals and I was feeling rather inspired. Soooooo  I went out to the night market and found some I thought would make some cute pets.  Here are some wonderful little tutorial links. Hope you enjoy!


  1. Can't wait to see what cute creatures spring up out of those socks (and your imagination.

  2. sock household pets are handmade from a couple of footwear x these are handmade so not recomended for youngsters.
