I’ve been knitting since I was eight years-old but I’ve never made a pair of socks…always thought it was silly to spend time making something for my feet. And since I wear pants almost every day, no one can even see them. But when I saw this pattern that combined crochet and knitting, I was intrigued. Plus I think they’d make a great gift. The pattern comes from Ravelry. I had to fiddle with the gauge to make them a perfect fit but the directions are very well-written and easy to follow. I’ve been rolling up my blue jeans to show them off.
