It's a fact that I have to keep my hands and mind busy. Crocheting is a relaxing and fulfilling way to do just that. It doesn't take long to complete a pair of simple socks like these I've made for my DH and DS. I bought 2 balls of Sock-Ease yarn, one solid turquoise and the other is multi-colored.
These were made for DS using Sock Ease yarn
These were made for DH with Sock Ease yarn
I've also made leg warmers for myself. I worked them in the round ; chain 28, slst in first chain and sc in back loop only for rows 1-4, now start hdc sizing it to your leg as you go. Work as many rows as you need. I wanted these to go to my knee, so they are quite tall. To finish, sc in back loop only for the final 4 rows and tie off. For these I used a different yarn; Wool-Ease made by Lion Brand. I have rinsed them in hot water so that the dye in the yarn comes out and rinses clear. I've blocked them and dryed them on a rack. These were completed in a few hours.
Next, maybe I will finish a wave afghan I started for my DH a few years ago. Hahaha, I am on a roll. ;o)
