    I am wearing a pair of alpaca wool socks. What a little slice of heaven. :-) That's all, just enjoying my socks. :heartsm:

    I have over a dozen white tub socks which were dingy gray and had lost all elasticity. I had bleached them numerous times and they were still gray. At first I thought about sewing some elastic into the top and reusing them. But they were so thin until I decided it was not worth it. They were...

    My family go through socks like crazy and I'm thinking of trying to darn them, at least the ones that just have little holes. Wondering if it is worth the time doing this tedious chore. Does anyone do this any more? Do the socks last enough longer to make it worth it?

    One of these days, I would like to knit socks. My question is I'm allergic to wool so what would be a good yarn to use? Thanks!

    I Loom Knit and would love to do socks on the loom and would love to hear the feedback on making them. I would like to purchase a sock loom ( I would like to make regular socks not slipper socks) TIA
  13. Question and Answer
    Three kids. Two adults. It's a lot of socks, or so you'd think. Turns out that apparantly it's not. Or it is, but it's more of a rotational thing. The socks I buy don't last. They fall apart within the first two or three washings, or get worn through. So I'm looking for a new sock...

  16. Just Tips
    I went through a couple of sock drawers for my youngest two kids this morning. There are a lot of socks that didn't have matches and I'm about ready to throw them out. Does anyone have any ideas on how to re-use them. I'm not sure that I can fit my hand in them for cleaning purposes. Thanks!

    These are for my 6yo. It's my own pattern because I couldn't find a child's pattern that was big enough or an adult pattern that was small enough. His feet are freakishly large :skept:

    I LOVE this pattern! It's called "Monkey" by Cookie A. (for the knitters, I did the no-purling version...it felt like cheating lol). The yarn is Trekking 122 and the colors remind me of dds sock monkey so I thought it appropriate for the Monkey sock pattern. They worked up very quickly! I...

    These started out being for me & I decided ds needed them (he was drooling over them) more than I did. His foot is only 1.5" smaller than mine :yikes:

    Last year, for her birthday I made my niece a pair of socks and a purse. This year, when asked what she wanted Aunt Heather to get her for her birthday...she requested more knitted socks :toothy: So here are this year's birthday socks:
