Hand Knit Croc Socks

I'm positive that I'm not the only one who feels that the crocs/socks/shorts should NEVER EVER go together. Crocs/socks/jeans, perfectly acceptable.  My husband is an avid fan of the crocs/socks/shorts ensemble.  I may have gently mentioned that this fashion statement looks ridiculous.  He just smiles.  Here's my solution.  Hand knit croc socks for Father's Day {sneaky aren't I?!}

Here are his crocs.

And here's the yarn I dyed.

And here is the sock he received for Father's Day. {yes, singular}


And here is the other sock I will have finished by tonight.  If you're a knitter, you will know that it's perfectly ok to give half a present with the promise to finish it ~ sometime.

What's in your knitting this week?

  5. Came across your blog this weekend while trying to knit up a few Christmas gifts. Your socks would be a perfect option as I am running out of time faster than I can knit. Can you tell me if you have a pattern to sell? Or can you point me in the direction of the pattern you used?

    Love your blog! I have a friend down here that I'm going to point your way as you are living the life she tells me she's dreaming of.

    Warmly,
    Christine

  6. Thanks so much Christine! I'm so glad you found me:) For the sock I just used a basic sock pattern but made the ankle shorter. I couldn't find anything exactly like it on ravelry, but if you search free men's knit socks, you should be able to find something similar. Yarn Harlot also has a great basic sock pattern in her book that you should be able to find at your local library! Hope that helps a bit:)
