Aren't these adorable?
After seeing a tutorial on how to crochet edgings on socks, I started one night and haven't stopped! Click here to see the tutorial from Kathy at Highlights from Higher Ground.
There are several great things about this type of project. First of all, it's very fast. That's important for those of us who like instant gratification! They're easy. They're inexpensive. They make great gifts. Little girls LOVE them. You can make them to match any outfit. The creative possibilities are endless. And, last, but not least, they're very portable. I stuck a few pairs of socks, a few balls of thread, my size 7 hook, and a pair of scissors in a bag and take it wherever I go. It's a great project to work on when you have to wait--like at the dentist.
