From Toe warmer...

to sock.
The crochet sock project has been demanding attention at every available opportunity this week.
The pattern was very straight forward and easy to follow.
Both the foot and leg were completed in a long spiral shape leaving a hole for the heel, which is another spiral completed at the end.
This construction makes it very easy to try the sock on regularly and make adjustments to fit.
Most of the deviations I made from the pattern were unintentional, but do not alter the way the sock fits me.
I did choose to close the heel with a double crochet join rather than sewing the two sides together, I think it works better with the stretch of the crochet fabric.
Now to complete a partner that matches with all the deviations.
Happy weekend crafting.

Lovely pattern!
And I love that you added (sometimes) to your blog banner. So true. I tend to start a lot more projects than I finish!

I think we all need your beautiful socks with Melbourne's weather at the moment.

Looks fantastic! Mine are a little thicker looking but then I used what I thought was a thin 5ply because it was a total experiment. But they fit comfortably in my shoes so I am happy.
