This has been a fun class and lots of warm socks for next winter are being finished. They will make wonderful Christmas presents and I hope you enjoy these pictures uploaded by our students. Many are working on their second pair.

It might take a few minutes for each of those to post their finished socks with a post! enjoy!

This was a fun workshop and gave me a head start on my Christmas list. If you decide to make these, don't start the cuffs when you are tired, I had rip out the first cuff and start over! It's all part of the learning process. Also I decided that 3 rows of croc stitch was enough for me.

They are great! I love the color. The nice thing about them is that you can make each one different. Congratulations to Heather. Fun class!

I finished mine using DK ice yarn and crochet hook #5. There are videos attached to the workshop on doing the heel and the crocodile stitch. I would recommend watching them if you are unsure.
This was a fun workshop. Thank you to Heather for teaching the class and to Shirley for setting it up.

I finished mine too! And as someone said, they are 'fraternal twin' socks as I didn't match the beginning color on the second one! Oh well, maybe this way there is a specific right or left foot? Maybe not.... They are both the same size - picture taking isn't one of my skill sets. The crocodile stitch was fun but I didn't like it on mine so did just a front post 'thing' for the cuff part - will be making another pair now that I have an idea of how to get them to be the right size (think the toe up is a great way to learn). And I will have to watch the video for the heel again as I still am not positive that was done correctly. Besides all of these it was A WONDERFUL FUN class to participate in - thank you for teaching us

Good job, all of you. I know that they work up quickly. I am thinking about knitting a pair of socks up to the top of the heel and then crocheting the croc stitches using sock wool for the whole sock, for my grand daughter and a couple of her friends for Christmas. They were talking about mix and matching socks so I might sound gd out once I have them finished and if she wants to she could pick the different socks from each pair and put them together. I am also thinking of giving them to gd (12 years old) to give them as gifts and she might have fun figuring out what socks are good for each friend.

I am so glad that you had and are having such fun with this class!

WOW I LOVE WHAT I AM SEEING HERE

What a fantastic job is being done by all. :D
How easy is it to make crochet socks and without the major problems with turning heels (which I have) with knitted socks. Experienced crocheters could even adapt this pattern easily to make it fit even babies or up to fit soneone with very large feet like some very tall basketballer.

Most people are opting for 2 or 3 rows of crocodile stitch. I do love the 4 on mine.

I do love your colors, and lovely even tension. You have done wonderfully. Theee will make a lovely gift, especially during winter.

Ohh! Ice yarn. Lovely color way and beautifully made up. Well done and I hope you make more in future
