A few weeks ago, I started a pair of socks for myself. It's been years since I've knitted socks but I've seen so many bloggers knitting them that I wanted to give it a whirl again. The book I used is called 'Socks', a Spin-Off special publication for knitters and spinners, printed in 1994. I used to use my own yarn to knit them. This time around I just used Red Heart yarn and don't slap me, I didn't check the gauge. They came out a little big and make my shoes pretty snug but they make excellent slippers. For this next pair- purple - I'm making them a little smaller.
I read somewhere that you can spray Krylon No-Skid (I think that's what it's called) on the bottom to make them more of a no-skid slipper sock. I may try that with some ratty old socks before trying it on these.
Hope you have a good day.
