Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] New advanced sock puppets

These are very fun characters! I'm glad you are
finding ways to make puppets quickly. To be able to
translate ideas into a character is always a marvelous
feat, and is fun to do no matter how long it takes.
However, to have the option of a new way that offers
more spontenaity is a terrific discovery.
