Socks, I love making and wearing handmade socks. A pair of socks takes quite a while for me to make, but it’s a lot of fun and easy to do on planes and during downtime when I might not have a lot of space.
My most recent socks were my first pair of socks from a sock blank. If you don’t know what a sock blank is – companies make a rectangle of sock yarn, then it gets dyed and decorated. When you unravel the blank, you end up with some really long stretches of individual colors. If you’ve added extra design elements – like this one did – then you get some nice
I got a decorated sock blank from Gale’s Art on Etsy called “Dancing Bunnies.” After unravelling it, I divided the yarn into 2 balls and started making my socks!
I’m thrilled with how they came out .. there’s nice wide sections of the different colors and little flecks from where the bunnies were. The socks are squishy and very soft on my feet. I’ve got some of the yarn leftover but not enough for a pair of socks.
