comfy house socks

May 31, 2008

Yeah, I know that it’s the wrong season to be making warm, chunky, almost knee-length house socks but my fingers were itching to do some crocheting. I’ve been sewing so much these days that I feel I’ve been neglecting my yarn stash, so I figured I could make these socks now and stow them away ’til winter comes. I just love the cozy look of aran fleck yarn.

  1. I’m afraid to make socks, for some reason. Everyone says they aren’t hard. Your’s are gorgeous!


  2. Crocheted socks! I love the look of the crochet. It’s just as cute a little babies’ fingers and that sort of things…


  3. deirdre — thanks! actually i, myself, have been scared to knit socks, but i can attest that crocheted socks are quite easy!

    hana — i agree. 🙂


  4. Maya, these are great! I think I like to crochet more then knitting, so I’m pretty tempted to make socks like these, is there a pattern for them?


  5. thanks mirela! i followed this pattern (link is below) for short ankle socks, but adjusted the length and width around the opening in order to turn them into calf length socks. i don’t really closely follow a pattern (counting stitches and such) — i do it the haphazard way of fitting while i go! me and my shortcuts…
