The finished product is nothing new, but the road I took to get there I'm willing to say is somewhat unique. At least I haven't seen it (doesn't mean somebody else hasn't already thought this one up). I have a container of socks without mates. There are some socks that have been in there several years and several moves. I came to a realization that the socks that have been in there over a year are never going to find the other half of their pair. The reason I know this is because I packed every box and there are no socks out there...only the ones in my container. Knowing this, I decided it was time to do something with some of these socks. Sure, you're thinking, "You threw them away, right?!!" cause they're socks and that's gross. Nope not me. I'm a recycler.
Now, I'm not completely crazy. I cut of the "foot" part of the sock off and ditched that. It was too much for me and I had no desire to find another use for it.
I slipped it on and it didn't feel quite finished (and all the other blogger/crafters always add something).
(yes, that is old nail polished that has since been removed...I promise)
Since the picture, I have made the thumb hole bigger so the "glove" slides down more. Now I have to ask, where to people wear their fingerless gloves and how? With long sleeves? Underneath a coat? I'm picturing Punky Bruster here. I think they look cool but I don't know what to do with them (I made three).
