Socks and a little bag

The socks for MIL are done.




I just made and extra bag, with the rest of the yarn. So she can put them inside when she travels, or to put whatever she wants.



The pattern for the socks was from here, and the little bag is from here.

In the pattern for the little bag, that is to put some soap inside, I just double the stitches to make it wider.


And I had also to make her longer, so the socks won’t be outside, or too tight.

I also made 2 crochet chains, to the top of the little bag.



I really enjoyed doing this bag. It has a look of cetin.

This will be my first idea maybe for a Christmas present.

Since we are still in September almost October, you still have time to do a pair of socks, and a little cute bag to go with it!


Nice weekend everyone

Wonderful idea for the matching bag! That is the perfect way to gift wrap gift socks. Gonna have to bookmark the bag pattern. Thanks!

I think it's a great idea!

What a clever idea! She's going to love it.

By the way, I have a bag of yarn to send your way. I'm hoping to get it into the mail next week. I had some yarn, good yarn, in my stash that I won't be using BUT I'm betting you will. :) So there's something to look forward to!

Wow! I love the socks and the bag! I need to make myself sit down and learn how to make socks! I never have even tried it! :)
