I would like to preface this post by letting everyone know that most of the items I am posting about are from the last few years and were not knitted in the last few weeks…after all I have an almost 8 months old and a 4 1/2 year old at home :-).
One of the mum’s at school asked me to make her and her daughter some slipper socks earlier this year.
And since it’s getting cooler now, I thought it would be the perfect time to post about them.
I used this DROPS Design pattern, which was a great easy and quick knit.
They look quite good on don’t they (even if it was on my then pregnant feet)…and they are very, very warm indeed.
This second pair was for my friend. She picked the colours for both, and I really love these colours together!
It’s a funny pattern, as the cuff gets knitted first and then the sock itself gets knitted, so when I first looked at it, I was definitely a bit confused about how the finished sock would look.
The buttons are only for looks they are just sewn on at the end.
And this pair is also super warm and cosy.
