Feeling old-fashioned ...

Rummaging through the local charity shops is one of my favourite things to do when I have spare time.
I found several great knitting patterns from the 50's, 60's and 70's.

Here are some 'sleeping socks' I made.
Rather than making a heel, the shape of the sock is created by using shorter rows in the front - thereby keeping the top of the sock shorter than the rest.

The socks are actually very comfy to wear.
They can be found in my etsy shop.

Thank you, Ally.
The socks were sold last night. Better make some more ... :o)

I love the 'Take back the knit' blog, and have added a link in my blog.

Thanks for visiting! :o)
