Bet you thought I was gone for good! Well I’m back at it again as the Holidays are now over. That kind of makes me sad. This year was kind of different for me as I did not have the Christmas spirit until maybe a week out from Dec 25th. Not sure what was up but I never did put up my tree as usual however, I did put up a small as in VERY small tree and some snowflake decorations. I wish we had Grandchildren that would have been here but they could not make it this year. 🙁
Anyway, I’m back at it as my busy time of the year has slowed down. I had a friend ask me if I could make her some Pedi Socks. Well of course I had to investigate this. What in the world are Pedi Socks????? Well it’s just about one of the best items I have ever seen out there. I wish I could take the credit for inventing these socks but I have created my own design for these simple little flip-flop socks. Just think you can put these on before you get your toe nails painted and keep your feet warmer and nails in good shape. Then there is always the folks who like to wear socks with their flip-flops too. 🙂
I’m not a perfect pattern writer so I do like feedback on my patterns in a pleasant manner.

Here the finished product! So excited to share this pattern with you all. I crocheted these with 1 size bigger hook then the yarn calls for because I crochet tight. So make adjustments with hook size and make sure you are trying on the sock as you go.
Thanks and let me know what you think!
