THIS JUST IN: Order a pair of handmade socks--or slippers--to match your favorite pajamas! You saw it first, here, at Groovy Tuesday's! What a great gift idea!
Below are just a few of examples...
Now is the time to place your orders for Christmas Gift Socks! Hand crocheted socks from wool/alpaca/silk/acrylic blends. I purchase only the best yarn that I can afford from the America's for these gift socks, in fact, much of the yarn I have in stock is from a Kentucky Alpaca farm. You can find them here: KentuckyBlueFiber
Prices: Adults: $25.99, Kids/Teens: $20.99, and Infants/Toddlers: $12.99 The adult and kids socks are a basic crew-style length and are a little thicker than regular socks you wear with shoes. Here is the information I need for your made-to-order socks:
1) Foot length from heel to tallest toe or shoe size.
2) Foot circumference around the instep or shoe size.
3) Your first color choices, and an alternate color. If you want just one color, tell me. If you want a variegated color (self-striping) let me know the main color.
4) Although I can probably figure it out from the measurements, please make sure you tell me if the sock (s) are for an Adult, Kid, or Infant.
5) Let me know your fiber preference. Wool blends are usually for winter socks, while cottons, bamboo, silk are usually for summer socks. But, some folks are allergic to wool, so PLEASE give me some guidance on your fiber choice. I'll do my best to work with you.
SPECIAL OFFER: PURCHASE THREE PAIR OF SOCKS AND RECEIVE 10% OFF OF YOUR ENTIRE ORDER!
Please allow 2 weeks for completion. This gives me time to find your color choices if I don't already have it in stock. PRICE INCLUDES FREE SHIPPING TO LOCATIONS IN 48 CONTIGUOUS USA. Actual shipping to other locations will be added via email invoice.

Yeah, "Johnson-Hall" was just too plain and ordinary. We are waay too groovy here for that, aren't we?
Earlier in my posts, you'll see I made a tea cozy for my mom, who drinks a pot of tea every morning. I shipped this to her along with a trivet that matches (remember this--they match), slippers, and a couple of pair of socks for Dad all which I made for their Christmas gifts.
Mom calls last night to thank me for the gifts. She said she is wearing the slippers, but "the hat doesn't fit me!" I'm running a silent film in my head as fast as I can trying to recall a hat that I made and sent, but nothing comes to mind.
Ding Ding! "Mom! Mom! THAT is a TEA COZY!" She says, "a WHAT?" I repeat, "a Tea Cozy. For your morning pot of tea."
She says, "Well, Ben and Laura were over and she didn't know what it was either, but decided it was cute. Just a shame it wouldn't fit anyone. That makes sense, now! And I thought the brown pipe cleaners on the top were antennas!" Apparently, even my dad tried to wear it. Good Grief, Guys! "If you would have read my blog back in October, you would have known!," I whine, hurt to the core they didn't read my blog.
I thought the matching trivet would be a dead giveaway clue. I even put the plastic bag inside it with a handle hanging out of each opening for the teapot spout and handle.
I have the nuttiest family! Mom could make Scrooge giggle like a girl.
I hope Dad's feet are warm and Mom is enjoying a very hot pot of tea this morning!
G'day, and feel better! You are both loved so very, very much!

We are avid seamstresses and crafters since the ORIGINAL 1970's, and we're still going strong. We're also yarn, fabric, and pattern hoarders. ("Speak for yourself," protests Alice.) We, ok, I haven't parted with my stash in over 40 years until now. Maybe we'll have something that you just can't live without! Enjoy browsing!
