Crochet Sock - Tastic! Days 347 to 349

In the last year I have fallen in love with making Crochet Socks

Not in any particular order.....

These men's socks I made "blind" only having the shoe size & notes of a wide fitting

I got my husband to try them on over his socks for an idea of fit as I normally try my socks on as I crochet for a bespoke fit

 These I made with dk & made the pattern up as I went along from the knowledge I had gleaned from making previous pairs

I love the way they turned out & are so comfy too

These are made with Regia Sock yarn

And these are from my book 

They are the perfect pair for a beginner to make

One of my favourite pairs I made are these

I am wearing them today in fact & they are over 18 months old now and still wearing well

Another pair but made with Noro Sock yarn, which is great for socks

Christmas inspired me to make lots of mini Christmas Stockings, a pattern of my own design

Another pair made with Regia that I wear regularly

So comfy

And easy to wash & dry!

Hubby's Socks - yes he finally has a pair, well sort of as I am saving them for his birthday

And more cosy socks from my book which I wear to bed or in my wellies
(not the same pair!!)

My sock mania has worn off on some of my pupils....

PD made this Christmas Stocking 


KPK these socks below

These socks have been finished!

My notes as I design

Noro socks in the sun room

And now for my latest pair by Claire Montgomerie
in Inside Crochet Magazine Issue 45

I added a ribbing to the top for practical reasons (welly or ugg boots which I tend to live in)
however I loved the frilly top, so I added that in afterwards

These are my favourite pair so far!

And now I have more to make as I have bought a pattern from:

Vicki Brown Designs

Last but not least are 3 squares to bring my Twitter blanket up to date
