Sometimes sewing something new takes a little determination. Sometimes complicated patterns fall basically make themselves. Then, sometimes easy patterns, say three pieces of fabric can cause you some really frustration.
Meet fleece socks:
These suckers took me 7, yes 7 attempts to finally get them right. And yes, I kept trying until I made the socks fit. I tried several different patterns but finally ended up using this pattern and voila.
The purpose behind these socks was to provide a little comfort to my friend heading to the hospital to have her little baby boy. I hope while many other parts of her are uncomfortable her feet will be in sock heaven. These are the most comfortable, cozy socks ever! I plan on making myself several pairs and some for the jealous onlookers that watched me put them together.
