Once they arrived I realized they were men's socks. About 2 inches too big for me. Since they were so cheap I really wanted to keep them, plus I need them. I wear wool socks everyday and only have two pairs. A pair for everyday would be wonderful!
I talked to my mom and decided that I could cut the toe off and move it up. I ended up cutting them just below the heel, mostly because it just made more sense to me.
I have been wearing one of the pairs for a few hours and it looks like I'll need to sew them up another time, the wool doesn't like to stay together with just a little stitch.
Here are some pictures to show you what I did:
|Cut the sock|
|Put ride sides together and line up any distinct colors (If you don't it'll look a little wonky).|
|Sew it up (I did it by hand) and turn it inside out.|
|Trim off the excess (careful not to cut into what you've sewn, I did that a couple times).|
|You have a sock that fits you! (See how it looks wonky? I lined the rest of them up.)|
|Here is a original sock next to one I fixed. Success!|
|Yay! Warm socks that fit!|
|Now I have 4 new pairs of socks. Happy Pam!|
