I’ve been doing a lot of knitting recently, so I thought I’d take a short break (less than 24 hours to be honest!) and do a little sewing. I had some hand-sewing to do (buttons… boring!) and hubby needed some trousers hemming (also quite dull). While I had the machine out, I thought I’d have a go at making Maria Denmark’s fleece socks. I am not quite ready to sew the garments in my Sewing With Knits Craftsy course yet, so this was a good pattern for a quick sewing fix.
Maria’s patterns are easy to follow; I have already made her Kirsten Kimono Tee, so I was familiar with the process involved in laying out and cutting PDF patterns.
The socks turned out well. I also made hubby a pair. He opted to have his with the seams on the outside, which looks slightly odd, but they are smooth on the inside, so more comfy.
I always learn something when I get my sewing machine out. This time, I learned that it is virtually impossible to photograph your own feet in a flattering way!
Thanks for the pattern Maria!
