This is my first attempt at making a sockette with a heel.

Usually I make thick tube socks for winter to sit beside the fireplace
which are much easier to do.

But now I know how easy it is and quick to make sockettes.

Oh I know , they are a dime a dozen at the store but these are thick and handmade and have 20% wool in them.
It's something to do at night watching TV.

So why not?
I can make a ton of them for Christmas and then just think about how to decorate them, embroider names, that kind of thing.

I still would like to make a few embroidery projects.
I remember my grandmother making such beautiful embroidered pillow cases
with roses and such. Today its simple. They sell you printed patterns to follow.
She just had an outline and hade to do the shading part inside on her own.
They also used silk thread which is hard to get nowadays.
Oh well.

I sent an Angel to watch over you last night.
It came back.
I asked it why?
It said Angels don't watch over angels.

Have a wonderful day!!

We all have unique gifts, but you my friend got an extra dose. :)

I love the angel poem. I don't think we truly realize that they are fervently protecting us from the evil one.

Hope yesterday yor love cup runneth over.

Love and a really tight hug,

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I have to know, though, what is the difference in a sock and a sockette?

Rhymes - a sockette is shorter. It just goes to the ankle as opposed to a sock which goes higher up the ankle.
My husband prefers socks and I prefer sockets, as does my son.
They just fit into your shoe nicely without showing much above it but you are still wearing socks.

These ones here are warm and more like house slippers.
