I’ve been bitten by the sock bug again. We’ll see how long it lasts this time, but I decided to wind up some Socks That Rock mediumweight (colorway “hot flash”), just in case the sock bug decides to hang around a while.
I’m actually interested in making boot toppers (footless short socks with a cuff). I can’t really wear socks inside my orthotics but this way I can at least look like I’m wearing handknit socks, right? Humor me for a while so I can figure out whether this will work to my satisfaction with sock yarn. I’ve found some heavier ones but none so far intended to emulate socks. I’m figuring a snug ribbing down around my ankle and the top of a sock cuff ought to do it. Wish me luck. I’ve got some cute new Dr. Martens shoes that need proper socks.
