Choosing what to sew for the Comfy Winter Boutique blog tour, hosted by The Wolf and the Tree (TWT), was a very easy decision. When I think about being comfy in winter, I immediately think of sitting by the fire, with a cup of hot chocolate in warm, fuzzy, comfy socks. So I made some Going Rogue socks for me and my youngest daughter.

I had made some of the TWT Knockout socks before (see them here) but the Going Rogue socks was a new pattern for me. The thing I love about the TWT sock patterns, is that they are a quick sew and they don’t require a lot of fabric. I decided to make our socks using scraps I had leftover from other projects. I started with some fuzzy black fur fabric that I just recently cut into and a printed fur fabric that I have had forever. Since I was using fabric scraps, I did have to modify the pattern just slightly. My black fabric was about 1′ too short, so I just added an extra 1″ to the cuff. That worked great! I would suggest sizing up if you are using a fur fabric that has minimal stretch, like my fabric.

My next pair of Going Rogue socks were made with some grey Walmart mystery knit for the main part of the sock. For the cuff, I had small pieces of this fun Christmas knit fabric left over from a cardigan I made for my husband ( I really need to blog about his cardigan!). I didn’t have enough of the Christmas knit to go all the way around the cuff, so I used some navy fur fabric for the back half of the cuffs. These socks look so cute, and are definitely comfy! I am so glad that I was able to use up some of my fabric scraps, and got some really cute socks out of them!
