Ok, I know they ain’t fancy, don’t have an intricate pattern, and they are kind a chunky too….But these are the first pair of “real” socks that I have ever made!!!!!
Hard to believe (for me) that after all those years (about 25) of crocheting and knitting, I never got around to making a pair before.
Now, I can understand the reason that socks are popping up all over cyberspace. They were a lot of fun and I can’t wait to try the Cat’s Paw Socks next, more challenging then this first pair and knitted on double-point needles. These were just a fun crochet project and a great way to start. What do you think? Definitely cold weather, boot socks and proud to wear them I will be.
Yes, I have made slippers, including these booties (plus several pairs for gifts) but never a SOCK that would actually fit in a shoe or boot. I’ve never really seen a heel take shape before, oh joy LOL! And what a great way to use up extra yarn. I think I’m hooked!
In other yarn news… I am trying to find a sweater pattern called ‘Just Hanging Out’ which is described in the Cat’s Paw pattern link. Anyone heard/seen this one? It sounds really nice and a fitting sweater for any cat-lover. And I do need more projects, right!!!! 😉
I also finally found a knit-along for the Felted Clogs I want to make, over at knittinghelp.com. I have never participated in a KAL before, so this should be fun and help to keep me motivated. A big “Thanks” to Mary Anne over at Miss Woolly Knits for trying to help with this. I kept looking and finally found this KAL while doing a search for something else. That happens a lot!
My Cropped Cardigan is coming along nicely, back finished, working on the first front. Joe’s Lopi Cardigan needs one more sleeve and the pockets, so should be ready in plenty of time for Christmas. I really will need to be carrying my projects around for knitting on the go at all times. I still need to find a way to knit/crochet standing in lines LOL….that would help a lot.
Hope you all have a great Thursday.
Enjoy the beautiful fall weather and colors, wherever you are! 🙂
