Description

I visited Japan recently and had my mind exploded by how awesome everything there is and particularly their hosiery shops.

They are so innovative with sock design that I ended up buying A LOT of socks in a sock fascination fury.

When I tried to find similar in the UK I only found one store but the prices were ridiculous (I don’t know who can afford £25 for a pair of socks), so I decided to make my own.

I’m making loads with different colours/ribbons/elastics/laces

    So do you actually make the sock or do you just buy a sock and add the ribbon and such??? They are really cool!

      great thing about making socks is that they are so small, you can finish a pair in no time.

      SO many possibilities!

      Thanks! I’ve become sort of obsessed with footwear after seeing the myriad possibilities.
