I showed you some socks the other day. They turned out to be sooo easy to make that I had to try again.Continue reading
Hi there! I like to make socks because I can use scraps of yarns I have form previous projects.Continue reading
September 11th is a special date for me because it’s the day I started this blog… 4 years ago! Wow! Here’s a round up of 4 of the best crochet projects to celebrate: a cowl, comfy socks, veggies play set and a crazy cat house. Just click on the names and you’ll be redirected to the page! Happy crocheting!
If you are looking for a quick project to crochet before winter is over, these comfy stay-at-home socks are a good way to give use to odd skeins that may have remained from bigger projects, and they also make great gifts.
One small skein like these ones from Flying Tiger stores makes for one sock for small woman’s feet (about 36 in Spain, which according to this website would be like a 5.5 in US and a 3.5 in UK)
Using this hairy yarn adds a plus of difficulty because you need to literally feel (with your fingers) where the stitches are, since it’s impossible to determine with your eyes where are you supposed to insert your hook next… This can be quite discouraging at first… but this also means it won’t show if you make any mistakes… 😉
The pattern itself is not difficult, and you can follow video instructions in my previous post about socks from (can’t-bellieve-how-quick-time-goes-by) two years ago.
