As if the world were not inhabited enough by the unsightly - yet somehow endearing to millions - sock monkey, the general public is being exposed to the creations of designer Rebecca Yaker. Imagine rolling into your senior prom sporting one of these knit wonders.

I am fairly convinced that it is not everyone's desire to flaunt a cotton/wool knit dress with these little creature's faces plastered over their chest and crotch respectively, but, stranger things have been known to happen.
