Many moons ago…or at least fifteen years I think, I was in a fleece sock making mode. I made big socks, little socks, lightweight socks, heavy socks, patterned sock and plain socks. Yes I had a great time. They were fast and easy with my new serger. When my family was no longer interested in fleece socks, I mean how many pair of fleece socks can a person wear, I gave socks to friends and finally had to give up the fleece sock adventure and move to something else. Now I’ve had one of those friends ask for new fleece socks. It’s getting to be fall and the feet are getting cold and the old socks have finally worn out.
This was such a fun project. I went into the storage room where all the “vintage” fabrics and patterns are located and shopped. I located fleece and my favorite sock pattern. This is a Rain Shed pattern. The Rain Shed company is located in Corvallis Oregon so they really understand the local climate and needs. This pattern is very high quality, it fits well and is fast to sew. It also produces a professional end product which makes it very satisfying to sew.
The first pair is done. Now the
victim or I mean friend can come and test the fit and I’ll be inclined to sew a few more pair.
