  1. In 2018 the Warmth for Warriors organization is once again collecting handmade Christmas stockings to send to our troops.They collect the stockings and fill them with little items such as soaps, candy, toiletries and other small goodies. The stockings can be crocheted, knitted, sewn or woven. Stockings should be around 6 inches long and any pattern style or color is accepted. Stockings that are a little smaller or larger are okay too. We had a wonderful year in 2017 with 2,819 stockings received for the Warmth for Warriors. Let's have another banner year for our troops and give them a little extra Christmas cheer during the holidays. Thank you to everyone that has helped in the past and those stepping up again this year. Shipping address for all USPS packages: Warmth for Warriors PO Box 353 Rudyard, MI 49780 Deadline for shipping stockings to Warmth for Warriors and delivery to them is November 1, 2018.
  2. I have been asked to start a 2017 thread for our Warmth for Warriors stocking drive. So here I go. For the last several years I have supported the troops each Christmas with a mini stocking drive. The Warmth for Warriors is a non-profit group dedicated to supporting our soldiers both active and retired. Here is the link to their homepage. The Warmth for Warriors organization is again calling for crafters to help crochet, knit, or sew mini handmade Christmas stockings for the troops. Stockings should be around 6 inches long and any pattern style or color is accepted. Stockings that are a little smaller or larger are okay too. Last year 1849 miniature stockings filled with soaps, toiletries, and candies were sent overseas to our troops as a little Christmas gifts. The little stockings filled with goodies are a wonderful way to say thank you to our troops and give them a little Christmas cheer during the holidays. Shipping address for all USPS packages to: Warmth for Warriors PO Box 353 Rudyard, MI 49780 Deadline for shipping stockings to Warmth for Warriors and delivery to them is November 1, 2017. Please join us this year in making mini Christmas stockings. Let's all post and share our ideas and projects while supporting our troops this year. Thank you all in advance for your help.
  3. Here is my first Christmas stockings I crocheted for the Warmth for Warriors 2016 sock drive. These 6 inch mini Christmas socks will be filled with little toiletries and goodies for the troops. They are given out as a little gift for the troops at Christmas. You can read more about the drive and join in if anyone is interested at the link above.
  4. Here are 3 Christmas stockings I crocheted for the grand kids. The red one is for my 1 year old grandson so I didn't put the bell on it as he loves to put everything in his mouth. The girls got theirs crocheted in their favorite colors. These are about 7 inches long and we put some little stocking stuffers inside.
  5. I made some booties and crocheted some trim on socks for a new granddaughter who is due in April. And a hat for the hospital stay.
  6. The Warmth for Warriors organization is again calling for anyone to help crochet, knit, or sew mini handmade Christmas stockings for the troops. Here is the link to the 2015 Stocking Drive. Last year over 1600 miniature stockings filled with soaps, toiletries, and candies were sent overseas to our troops as a little Christmas gifts. I just crocheted this stocking and am working on more. I try and do some during the summer and more in the fall and winter months. This is my 4th year participating in the drive. You can use any materials or patterns to make the stockings and just try and make them about 6 inches long. I will post more of my crocheted stockings as soon as I get some photos taken. Please jump in if you'd like to help out the project. Thanks!
  7. This is my last group of crocheted mini Christmas stockings for the 2014 Warmth for Warriors Drive. I got them off in the mail yesterday and they will be filled with some little goodies for our troops for Christmas. These were all crocheted with scrap yarn I had and it was fun using up the bits to make these cute little socks.
  8. My husband has huge feet, but I want to crochet socks for him anyway :-) All the patterns I have seen for men's socks, use thick yarn and look more like slippers. I want to use sock yarn and make something a little more refined. Also, his feet are just big, not wide. Has anyone seen anything that fits the bill? Thanks in advance! Randi
  9. Here are three more mini Christmas stockings I crocheted from different scrap yarn. These are so fun to do and work up quickly. These stockings are for the 2013 Christmas stocking drive for the Warmth for Warriors group.
  10. I wanted a pair of these style socks so I could slip off my flip-flops to go through airport security, but not be barefoot on the gross floor. Couldn't find a crochet pattern for them, so wrote my own. I love these socks. :-) Pattern is available with instant download on: Ravelry Etsy Craftsy Or on my website PamDaleyDesigns (PDF will be emailed to you).
  11. I recently have been crocheting mini Christmas stockings for the Warmth for Warriors stocking drive. I wanted to use some old jeans I have to make some stockings for the troops. So this is what I came up with -- mini denim stockings that have a crocheted cuff and loop.
  12. I have been crocheting these 6 inch mini Christmas stockings for the Warmth for Warriors project. I used different scraps of acrylic yarn to make them. If anyone is interested in making some of these for our troops here is the project link.
  13. Having fun making some new pairs of Kiddie Socks to be donated to a charitable cause. These are in Cascade Yarns "Fixation" cotton/elastic yarn on size F hook.
  14.

  15. Here is my really basic women's crocheted sock pattern that is worked in the round. I have sizes 6-1/2 to 7 women's and larger 9-10 women's in the free pattern link. Here is a picture of my favorite ones that I made for my dil.
  16. Here are a few mini Christmas socks I crocheted. The first one is from recycled newspaper bags and one green retail bag for trim. The second one is with Christmas ww yarn. I have more details here about these socks if anyone is interested. Merry Christmas everyone
  17. After posting my anklets about two months ago, I recieved so many compliments, and even requests for the pattern, that I dug out my index-card scribbles, rewrote them, and made another pair, taking photos so I could do this "tute-style" So, here's my first attempt at a tutorial. note:These socks were designed by me, for me...I wear a size 8w/8.5 shoe. But the major change for different sizes would most likely be in the foot length, unless you have extremely slim ankles, or very deep heel-cups... Supplies: Sock weight yarn. I used Bernat Baby Jacquards in the linked show and tell, and Sensations CuddleMuffin for this tute. (ETA: 1 skein of either of these yarns is enough, with plenty left over, possibly even enough for a second pair...but I haven't made two pair with the same colorway yet--and you thought second sock syndrome was bad...I'm not ready for 3rd and 4th sock syndrome! ) You can use regular sock yarn if you prefer...I'm just allergic to wool. Size E (3.5mm) hook Leaving a 4-6 inch tail, work 44 fsc. (or you could chain 45, and single crochet in the second and each remaining hook, but the fsc has better stretch, which helps get the opening over your heel). Being careful not to twist, join to the first sc with a sl st. Heel: 1. Ch 1, sc in first 22 sts, leave remaining unworked (this is your RS) 2. ch 1, turn. Sc in eahc of 22 sc. 3. Repeat step 2 for a total of 13 rows. Last row completed should be a RS row. Do not fasten off. side view-- Heel "cup": 1. Ch 1, turn. Sc in first 15 sts only, leave rem. sts unworked. 2. Ch 1, turn. Sc in 1st 7 sts, sc-dec next 2 sts. (I used the invisible decrease here. I realize that makes for a lousy tute picture. You can use the regular decrease just fine on these socks, in fact, you almost have to for the rest of the heel cup) 3. Ch 1, turn, sc in 1st seven sts, sc dec next sc and first sc from unworked row. 4. Repeat step 3 until all unworked sc's from heel flap have been used. You should end up with a cup with 3 sides and a bottom. Heel "gusset": 1. ch 1, turn. Sc across bottom 8 scs, work 13 scs along ends of rows,Mark Sc just made [sc FL next st. Sc BL next st] across sc's from foundation sc round. (22 scs across top) work 13 sc's in ends of rows (mark first of these 13 sc), Join with sl st. 2. Ch 1, turn. Sc next 11 sts. Sc-dec next 2 sts. (place marker on dec). [sc BL next st, Sc FL next st] across top of foot (22 sts). Sc-dec next 2 sts (place marker on dec), sec remaining 19 sts. Join. 3. Ch 1, turn. Sc next 18 sts. Sc-dec next 2 sts. (move up marker). [sc FL next st, Sc BL next st] across top of foot (22 sts). Sc-dec next 2 sts (move maker), sec remaining 10 sts. Join 4. Repeat steps 2 & 3, (sc counts on either side of join will decrease by one, every round) until you have 20 sc remaining across bottom of foot. (Should be 5 on one side of join and 15 on the other, including dec's) to clarify: in photo, ankle is at top, and toe end is facing left. Foot: 1. Chain 1, turn. Sc across sole, (keep moving markers as you go, it makes it much easier to see when to begin the pattern stitch) Work established pattern across top of foot, sc across remaining sole. Join. (42 sts) 2. Repeat step one until foot reaches just past your pinky toe (or 1.5" before end of toes). For me this was~ 6 1/4" when measuring from ankle opening to toe opening along the top of the foot. Take note of your measurement for when you work the second sock, it's easier than eyeballing, to get the same size on both socks) Toe: Ch 1, turn. Sc-dec on ea h side of markers, maintaining pattern across top of foot between decreases. Continue working in rounds in this manner, until only 20 stitches remain. (You will likely find you have to adjust your decreases for the joining. One method is to slip stitch over on the right side rounds, to make room for the decrease before the marker. Another is to move that decrease to the other side of the join. either method will work, just pick one and go with it for the last couple rounds of your sock) FO, leaving long tail for sewing. Turn sock inside out, and sew toe closed (I just weave the tail through the stitches along the toe opening, and then tie off, and weave in the tail a couple directions along the toe, to secure) Now use the beginning tail to tidy up the join at the beginning of your sock if you used the fsc, by pulling it through the "chain" of the last fsc, and back through the first "chain" of the first sc. weave in to secure. You're done! now go make the other sock!
