Hand Spun, Home Made,Tube Socks
Size 8 knitting needle cast on multiples of 2 long enough to go around the calf circumference. For the stretchy cuff, Knit 2 plural 2 ribbing for 2 inches. Knit right side, plural wrong until desired leg and foot length. Decrease 2 every row for toes, until 6 stitches remain on needle. Cut yarn leaving about 1 yard in length, draw yarn through remaining stitches and tie off. Use remaining yarn to sew seam. Hand wash in cold water.
HINT: I would make them larger than needed and felt them by putting them in a pan of hat water and a tablespoon of dish soap. Agitate for several minutes and then rinse in cold water. Repeat this process until you achieve the desired results. After the socks are felted they can be washed in the regular wash.
