I'm Addicted!

Ok...its official. I am becoming sock obsessed. Here is my latest creation.

I started out with a pattern but for some reason, the directions werent working out so after frogging the darn thing a half dozen times, I gave up and just made a simple sock using sc and esc. Nothing fancy but I like it. I used sock yarn for this one....Crystal Palace Panda Cotton in "Roses". I LOVE the feel of it and its stretchy so it fits nice. I bought 2 other Panda Cotton varigateds so you will probably see more socks in future. But unless I hit the lottery, I wont be buying much more sock yarn....I just spent $150 for SIX pair of socks....OUCH. Not all the same brand of yarn, though. But I have splurged enough for now. :)

Crochet Away!

This may be my favorite--love those colors! I saw a thread on ravelry about how much money was spent on yarn--I'm not sure that I want to know how much I've spent. Way to go on the pattern offer!

Mini said...

Wow Sandy, you're really cranking out socks! So what is your secret for making 2 of the same thing? I still have only one lonely sock LOL!

Sandytoo said...

Hi, Mini! I guess the secret is I want to wear them...he,he. :)

Next time I go into my LYS, I am going to wear a pair of my socks...just to show them that people DO crochet socks and not just knit them. And that you CAN wear them with shoes :)

Hi, Sandy,
Wonderful socks!
I also love crocheted socks, but I’m afraid I won’t do it right (maybe now, that I’ve been "training" a lot...he he... who knows? ...).
I’ll try! :) I’m finishing a sweater for my three years old son (with a horse in it - !) and the I’ll try.
I’ll let you know.
Have a great week (here, in Brazil, we won’t work until Thursday, because of the Carnival party. So I’m at the beach, visiting my grandma again :D... I'll try to find more patterns in her international magazines from "old ages" hehe).
