Hand made socks

Made to measure hand knitted socks. An absoulute delight to wear , long lasting with 3000 stitches plus to each sock. Treat your feet to a real hug, every stitch fllled with good karma ().
100g wool used for socks costs 15 franks , work starts at 20 for plain socks,more complicated designs extra.
Great for treking , comfort for home , and very nostalgic.

I'd better start being more appreciative, then, when every Christmas and birthday I get a pair or two from my M-i-L.

Re: Hand made socks

Yes i do make them myself , I am addicted to making socks with the beautiful yarn and the effect of turning 200m of single thread into a perfect sock that lasts for years. I just love making socks .Takes me about 2 weeks to make so making now for next winter. My vincent van gogh wool is nearly a pair of socks.

Re: Hand made socks

Do you know Etsy? It's a great e-commerce website focused on handmade items.
Go to www.etsy.com. There is a market for handmade socks.

Re: Hand made socks

yes i can post them no problem , to be honest i never sold any before i just made them for friends and my boys, so we can do it like this .If you tell me what size you would like and what colour and any other preferances i will make them in the next round and send you a picture , if you happy with them we can make the price with postage, I think that is a fair way because I think its important that you are more than happy to be wearing them or giving them as a gift, If you dont like the picture you dont have to take the socks, I will find a home for them if it turns out like that,Because in the end i am just going to buy more wool if i make something from the socks I plan to make about 12 pairs this summer , so no big orders , just one at a time .

Re: Hand made socks

Sock wool (very good quality) is cheaper at Buttinette.
Etsy is international. I had stuff on there fro a while but make sure about international postage rates if you want to go that route. I found it too much hassle 'cos things can get lost in the post.
This is a Swiss Romand site I am currently using. There too you have to factor in postage but at least it is a set a rate & registered so less chance of things getting lost. Still waiting for the 1st sale.
There are other Swiss German sites where you can sell handmade stuff on.

Re: Hand made socks

Hi. How would it be different for bigger sizes. I have a Swiss Size 48. Is there a surcharge because of more wool etc.?

Re: Hand made socks

it would be a bit more wool but it would only make 5 franks differance so not the world, but you would have to measure the curcumstance of your feet , if you have a very broad feet you would have to measure them and pm me the size . , my son has size 44/45 and they have a stretch to them , he wears them with work boots . the ones in the picture 2 are mens socks .
