Hi there and here are my olds socks! You are probably wondering why I am showing my colourful collection of socks that I no longer wear. Well... I kept them for very very long for the day like this when I finally go ahead and do the upcycling project that I had thought of ages ago. To be honest what really prompted me to do it is finding out that my friend is also on the same idea and well ahead of me ( I am quite competitive and everything tend to be a race for me even if the other person have no idea that I am racing with them), I went ahead and did it.
So today I will share how it all went. I essentially made a mini rug (still in process to get bigger and bigger) out of socks that are too worn to wear but too pretty to throw away. To make the 'yarn' I have cut the sock in spiral direction,then joined it with other socks by tying the knot.I ended up with a 'yarn' ball that was big enough to start crochet. I started with the chain stitch!Then formed a circle. For the tutorial video click here! When the 'yarn' ball is finished you can always attach another sock to it. It can be never ending, always expanding circle rug!Hide all the knots on the wrong side (that side that faces the floor, which is not visible).My rug is tiny at this moment, but don't you worry it will soon expand when I add all Joni's old socks in it :-D. I hope you found this inspiring!
