Dye-O-Rama Crocheted Socks

  I used one of the skeins of yarn that my Dye-o-Rama pal, Penny, sent me to try crocheting a pair of socks. I have knitted socks before, but I have never crocheted any. I was inspired by Amanda's crocheted socks. I really enjoyed it, since sometimes I am not in the mood to deal with all those needles. To make these, I only had to use a hook. I am not very experienced with crochet, however, and the directions are sometimes not all that clear. I have since ordered a book on crocheting socks and hope to learn more. I was also very surprised how fast these were done. I did both socks in about 2 evenings--WOW! Posted by Picasa

Those look great and that's really fast! I'll have to try some. Crochet is a break for me, much easier and more relaxing.

Those are really cute! Catena Expressions has been crocheting socks for the Trek-Along. Give a shout if you'd like her URL...

I'd love to hear what you think after wearing them a bit. It seems like the iside is rougher than knit socks, but I haven't had a pair to try on...

Great Socks! Isn't crocheting socks fun and so quick, I made some of mine in one day.

Lovely! I'm seeing so many more people pick up the hook. :-)

Wow, that is fast! They came out pretty too. (Do I sound surprised? lol. I'm biased against crochet! Who knew?) I'd love to learn crochet, I have this thing for Granny Squares but I seem to be Crochet Resistant. I've been taught but can't retain.
