Finally got around to finishing a couple of small projects that were in the works waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too long. Here are the finished results:
I made these crochet Hexagon Boot Slippers with a worsted weight cotton. I really like the colors and they feel so comfy to wear!!! Only adjustment I made, I took a hint from some plush booties I had and put a elastic cording through to pull in the ankle a bit. It looked too sloppy without it.
On to knitting……
I now have a copy of this (cover photo unavailable) sock book and am eyeing several possibilities in it. Any suggestions from all of you sock experts ???Any mistakes to look out for in this book?
I am just dazzled by all the great results I see out there in Blogland!
These are my first pair of Super Simple ‘real socks’ made on dpn’s!!! It took a while to get a handle on working with the 4 SHORT needles at once (never tried before, in spite of knitting/crocheting for over 20 years) but now…. I can understand why so many people like to knit socks. It was challenging but fun. Next pair, plan to try a bit more of a challenge in terms of patterns though, gotta keep up the progress, right?
And of course, the final inspection and meow from the Mitz. Thankfully, she gave these the Paws Up!!!!
