I love reading other people's blogs because I get great ideas from them! Recently I saw the awesome Peppermint Twist socks that Knit Purl Gurl made and I fell in love! I have never made socks before but I really wanted to try them now!!
I used Peppermint Twist sock yarn from Spinning Fates and this awesome sock pattern from Ravelry. I also used the videos from Lion Brand to help with all the complicated turning of the heal and gussets (never knew my socks had gussets before!)
I took advantage of the kids and hubby being out of town and got these done in a week. I'm not sure how often I'll make socks but it was fun to do!
And here are more pictures from the process of making them!!
