Update!! We have a Winner!!  Congrats! I'll get busy with your socks!

" Tas" 

Ooooh, so many nice options. I’d go for a pair in the purple/lilac Sweet Things design with a red contrast.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I've been keen on sewing socks for a few years now, playing around with a few different patterns. You can read an old blog post I made about sewing socks with Crafty Mamas fabrics here.

 

 

Recently, the lovely Silke put up a free pattern that was just awesome- but it is not currently up. I made up a pair that I love- so comfy! This is the lime green/black stripe knit and black Stella. You need a cotton.lycra fabric to make the best socks.

 

 

 

....and I would love to make a pair to Giveaway! So here's the deal - to be in the running for a pair of groovy  knee-hi socks made by me- simply leave me a comment as to which of the fabrics I have in stock you'd like them in! You can only choose two fabrics, one for the main sock- one for the contrast. I'll draw a winner  Sunday 8th September. And I'll happily post them out worldwide.

 

So, hop to it! good luck!

    I went to her website & though the pattern is no longer offered FREE you can buy it for 1 Euro, but I can’t get past the “pay for it now” page. Must have something to do with the translator. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. Darn it. Would really like to have a copy too! Any suggestions on how to order it from her site?

    Thanks in advance!
