I always visit her booth first at Road to California in January as that is the only place I can see her.
I have several pairs of her bamboo socks that have gotten worn at the heels and are no longer good to wear but I was unable to throw them out because they are so beautiful. This morning I had the brilliant idea to turn them into finger-less gloves.
I cut a little below the ribbing with my pinking shears so that I would have some thinner sock for the turn under. I tried them on to make sure there was enough stretch to go around my hand.
After turning them under I used a zig-zag stitch and slightly stretched as I sewed to make sure I will have enough circumference after I was done. I then turned them inside out, put them on and pinched between my thumb and forefinger to get the sizing for the thumb hole. I sewed up about 1/2 inch, over about 3 stitches into the hand side, then back down to the edge. I repeated this another 1-2 times to make sure I had a secure seam. A sharp pair of scissors to clip between the two stitch lines and then turn those gloves back to the right side. I am thinking I can probably do the same or similar with the foot area that is still good.
And there you have them. A pair of finger-less gloves to wear on a cool morning walk. What have you done with your 'Wendy socks'?
