Before Christmas, GG said that he’d like me to make him some new slipper socks as his were getting a bit worn. I’d never made socks before, so there was a new skill to learn (with the turning the heel) and also I was in the sort of mood where I couldn’t be bothered to find a pattern, so I was making it up as I went along. So (with lots of help on that first heel from my friend J in Stitch and Bitch) I managed to finish his socks on New Year’s Day. Not to be left out, Cheeky asked for some as well. I finished those and applied the linings and non-slip sole stuff yesterday, so half of our family now has nice warm feet! The way the temperatures are going, I think I’ll be stealing GG’s socks before many more days are out!
