“Beware the Jabbersock”….? You know the story: Man hears about “deadly monster”, man slays monster, scoring adulation and appearances on late-night talk shows. Poor Jabbersock – another victim of negative spin in a culture driven by appearances. Yes, his slipstitch seersucker skin is distinctive. His eye of partridge heel might cause a stir. But, whiffling through his beloved primroses in the tulgey wood, all he wants is company. He knows he burbles, but he still can’t make out why he asks passersby in for Lapsang Souchong and they whip out weaponry.
(I put it to you: can a creature that “whiffles” and “burbles” really be that deadly?!)

So put down your vorpal sword, pick up your needles… Instead of slaying the Jabbersock, why not invite him in for a nice frabjous cup of tea?

Jabbersocky was designed to help showcase the colours in variegated yarns. Wondering whether your yarn will work for my patterns? I’ve added some guidance on my Designer page here: http://www.ravelry.com/designers/fiona-bennett

Thank you for your interest in my designs! If you’ve supped with Jabbersocky, why not tackle Scylla, Charybdis, or Ogopogo…?
