I was browsing the Sock Dreams website for some inspiration for a contest entry when I saw a pair of Sloth Socks (http://www.sockdreams.com/products/socks/sock-it-to-me/sock-it-to-me-sloths:11515).
This inspired me to make my very on Sock Sloth! He was fairly simple to make and turned out to be quite cute, if I do say so myself. He has velcro on his paws, which means that he can hang from just about any object (such as the dining room chair, or my arm, on which he is depicted in the photo). I think he's a nice change from the ol' sock monkey. :)
