Doll Socks are a SNAP

Okay, this is really pretty pathetic of me, but I got sooooooooooooo excited recently when I made these socks to go with an AG doll dress I had designed. Why??? Because they fit well and didn't droop or bag at the foot flexure.
I've had a weird thing about socks ever since I was a kid -- sort of a "droopysockaphobia". Socks in those day would get all stretched out and droopy, and I absolutely hated how that looked, and even more than that I hated how that FELT. Tights were exactly the same -- bagging and drooping at the ankles.
After I got married and had children, the one thing that I was very particular about was that their socks and tights had to have a lot of "snap" in them They had to have socks that were snug and fit well. I just have this thing about this!
Anyway, while these socks don't really snap, still they are snug, fit well, and look good! Hey, what more could I ask for? Well, except maybe, SNAP!!

Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm glad you like my needle case. Isn't it funny how ideas sometimes just jump out at you?

I sure know what you mean about 'snap.' I used to hate it when my socks would not only sag, but travel down into my shoes!

The dolls socks are adorable. I'm happy that I finally found a book about crocheting socks that I'd lost partway into a pair. Don't know how they'll turn out but I'm having fun trying!

Are you going to put any socks in your shop?

I might put the socks in my shop as an individual item later, but for right now I'm adding them to the doll outfits I'm making for my shop, just a little extra finishing touch.

Along those lines, I am so glad to see that you have put your jackets on Etsy. I just fell in love with the red polka dot one you made back when you first started making them. I knew I wouldn't be the only one who thought they were special. You use such wonderful colors and fabric combinations.
