Crocheted socks hmmmmm!

To be honest I was always thinking crocheted socks were well ..not possible... I mean you could make them,BUT would you really wear them. Yes, I made a pair I wear them. The problem with me crocheted or knit I just make one then way 18 mos. or so when the guilt is weighting heavy to finish the other sock. My crocheted socks do not hurt my feet they are very warm. I prefer knitted socks, but I had to see it could be done.

I used a purchased sock pattern from the CCOA. I also used really good German sock yarn my friend had given me a few years ago. My dear dear friend that I intended to make socks for and never did. She wants more than one...deep sigh.. If she ever breaks her foot and has a cast I sooo got her covered.

I waited and waited for my DD to show up for a skinny leg/foot pic. I was wearing my socks today (its cold here) and so fat legs, Birks, and all I give you my crocheted socks with the cuffs down.

I like crochet socks because they are quick and easy, but I do find that they can get loose very easily, so I do prefere knitted one.

love your blog..

Hey Shelia, I wish I could get over this just wanting to make one sock thing. I have a bunch of sock yarn my friend gave me. Beautiful yarn maybe I will be motivated this Spring and carry a sock around in my tote instead of larger projects.
