I decided that I wanted a pair of socks to wear on Christmas night.
So I cast on with some of the lovely chunky yarn that I bought in the Singer Sewing Centre.
I used the pattern that gave me my favourite pair of bed socks.
This pair of bed socks get a lot of wear. They’re really comfy.
My Christmas socks didn’t turn out quite as expected.
They came up a tad short to say the least.
The addition of 3 rounds of double crochet seems to have done the trick however.
I just couldn’t face frogging them when I realised their shortcomings. They’ll do as they are.
My mistake was not knitting up enough length before dividing for turning the heel. These are top down socks.
I like my chunky socks short…….just not that short.
