On the move…moving on?

Yes, that’s another pair of socks! Three for the year,  these have been done for a couple weeks, I just kept forgetting to get a picture…though the one above is weird, it looks like the sock is loose on my left foot but really they fit perfectly. So, now its time to move on to […]

They are snug on me, so will fit my mini-me perfectly! I made this pattern up, […]
