It's a Skimmer Sock

I finished this a while back, but there is still only one skimmer sock, mostly because I couldn't find my other skimmer shoe. This is the difficulty of living in a NYC apartment where all your shoes get jumbled in three cubic feet of hall closet with two other people's shoes.

Back when I had the idea for these, the low cut skimmer sock didn't exist on the general market. However, once finished a plethora of cheap options are available at your local chain shoe store. So, I missed the boat a bit there.

I used size 0's, Regia Jacquard, pattern my own. If anyone's interested, I can write it up and publish it.

OMGoodness! This is so cute! I just adore the little tiny socks. I also missed the boat with them. When I went to Japan for my honeymoon, I had never seen them before so I bought a half a dozen pairs- when we got back to the States, both my little sisters had already been wearing some for months. xD

I hope you find your other pair so you can make the second one. The yarn is beautiful and it matches your shoes so well!

Thanks, Sarah!

Now that the weather is warming up, I will have to go digging through my shoes again!
