Christmas Socks

Two weeks ago one of my neighbours knocked on my door wondering whether I might have some undesignated socks to sell. Turns out I had a half-dozen pairs of women’s size socks – she took 2 – one for her daughter and one for her daughter-in-law. However, I didn’t have any men’s size. I showed her the socks I’d just started and offered to turn those into a pair of men’s socks – she just needed to send me her son’s shoe size, which she did.

These are the finished socks – to fit a man wearing a size 9 1/2 shoe.

Men’s Socks

Turned out well. They’re actually brighter than in the photo and yet subdued enough I’m guessing her son will actually wear them.

So her order is now complete and on to the next pair of socks.
