More Socks!

I like to give myself personal goals and challenges. So a while ago I realized that I would like to replace all my store-bought socks and such, with handmade ones. Then I realized it would be a really fun challenge for myself. So I’m going to put it up here and keep you all updated. 🙂 Now there will be more than socks but you can see that on the list. Also anything counts as long as it’s handmade; crocheted, knitted or sewn. Now for the goal list.

  • 30 Normal Sock (All styles and colors acceptable.)
  • 10 Knee Highs
  • 5 Thigh Highs (To Wear with Skirts)
  • 5 Slipper Socks (Yes I do wear them because I get cold feet)
  • 4 pairs of Leg Warmers
  • 6 pairs of Reenacting Stockings (3 sturdy pairs, 3 fine pairs)

Now this isn’t a goal I plan to accomplish in the next year. I also don’t want to put a time limit on it because I know life gets in the way sometimes. But I hope to be able to do all this in the next two or three years. Let’s see how it goes!!!
