The weather at the moment is so cold here in the UK that even though I've got loads of lovely things on my sewing list, I'm not feeling particularly motivated to sew dresses and blouses or even to emerge from under my snuggie on the sofa. Besides which after all the placket/pocket matching business of the Negroni shirt, I was ready for a little sewing break.
So I did some knitting.
I made a couple of changes to the pattern to fit my size 6 ladies feet. I increased to just 11 stitches to begin with, then knitted until it measured 5.5 inches before the gusset increases.
I also added some homemade puffy paint to the soles, this makes them non-slip and you can do something pretty with it :). You need just 3 ingredients to make this, mix them together until they combine. I used a disposable piping bag to paint little hearts onto the socks... don't use your usual piping bag, unless of course you like the flavour of shaving foam.
These are perfect for wearing around the house in this cold weather, and look great with ankle boots!
