This post will most likely be more enjoyed by readers in the southern hemisphere, because it's freezing cold here, and I have made the warmest socks ever!
These socks were made from a 100% lambswool jumper (translate: sweater for my American friends). I found it in a sales rack of a thrift store. So it was CHEAP. Also as a jumper it was pretty ugly and unwearable.
I forgot to take a before picture but you can see from the above pic that I just cut off the sleeve and stitched the foot area closed. I tapered the foot to snuggle around my toes, therefore trapping in the heat and warming up my feet beautifully!
I hope my daughter doesn't mind I have decided to keep these for myself since she claims to be allergic to wool and I really am feeling the cold lately. I don't know whether it's old age or if my low blood pressure has something to do with it. Most likely old age! lol. I will keep an eye out for acrylic jumpers to turn into socks for my daughter so she doesn't miss out.
