I finally finished crocheting my first pair of socks this morning and I'm rather proud of the results. I didn't use a pattern so they aren't exactly the same as each other but they fit well and are warm. I've also added some elastic to the top to help them stay on.
I will have to get doing some more crocheting as I really enjoyed making these. I think I will try making another pair, but first I have been asked to crochet a hat for a friend of my boyfriends cat. The cat is called Charlie and he wants a hat that says 'Je Suis Charlie'. I'm not quite sure how to go about doing this as I don't have a cat to use as a model and to get the sizes right. I'll have to use Mr Ted instead :)
I have also promised my boyfriend an orange and grey hat and should get on and make that too. I might even be brave and attempt using a pattern!
