hand knit socks

I recently refashioned a messenger bag for my friend Carrie. She asked if she could pay me in sock yarn. I laughed and told her I had too much sock yarn, but she was welcome to knit a pair for me out of my stash. I was surprised when she said yes. Of course, she’s a much faster and more dedicated sock knitter than I am.

They are one of the best fitting pair of handmade socks I have ever worn, and this has got to be one of the best craft for craft deals ever. I’ll be posting about the messenger bag refashion this week.
