I am addicted to socks. There, I’ve said it. There are certain stores I cannot go into without hitting the sock aisle. A new pair of socks is soft snuggly sunshine happiness. Especially fun socks. Striped socks, argyle socks, funky socks, bright socks, crazy socks. I love them all.
Target has had some awesome socks the last couple years. Last week I totally fell in love with this pair that had a double seam and bow but I don’t have anything that I could wear them with that would truly show them off and so I hacked them into fingerless gloves. I was thinking this week that it’s getting cold in the office again and that I needed some new fingerless mitts and this was the perfect excuse to buy those socks.
It was a super simple mod, one I’ll be doing again. And again. And again. New socks for my hands. Cuter and far cheaper than store-bought mitts and less than an hour to make. I am doing the happy dance.
I wrote up a quick tutorial. If you’d like to make them too, download the PDF Instructions for Sock Hack Fingerless Mitts.
