For Christmas (how long ago was that?!) I promised James that I would crochet him a pair of socks, and I have! I thought socks would be a lot easier to crochet than they were. I crocheted along with this video which shows you how to make socks for a ladies size 7. James has big feet so I had to make a lot of adjustments, and some of them were more successful than others! As a result, the socks are slightly different sizes but I’ve been told they’re comfy and that’s what matters 🙂 The thick wool I used made for gorgeously chunky socks, perfect for lounging around the house and keeping your toes warm.
If anyone uses this video to make socks, drop me an email and I can tell you where I made adjustments. It was definitely helpful to have James around so he could try the socks on as I was crocheting. Hopefully now he’ll stop stealing mine! I’ve been browsing pinterest for patterns, and I’m tempted to crochet a whole wardrobe!
p.s. Jessthetics now has a facebook page! I’d appreciate it if you could pop over and give it a like 🙂
