wow! what an enthusiastic review. One question.. since the socks are made from fleece, arent they bulky to wear under shoes and sandals?

Most boots and heavy shoes are made to wear with "socks" that are wool or other heavy knitted materials. I have not had a problem wearing them with my tenners or boots or clogs. It is amazing how little bulk is involved with the polar fleece. You could use the 100 weight for loafers!

I use the thinner fleece for socks to wear inside of shoes, thicker fleece for "house sox." I finish the top the same way as Janie. Also, for house sox I paint designs on the soles for the anti-skid effect.

I have not had any slippage without the non skid bottoms. We have hardwood floors and congoleum so are a pretty slippery crowd! I have heard of using the "Puffy Paints" to draw on the bottom. You could write a name on the bottom if you wanted to identify the owner!

Thanks for the top treatment tip! I am going to make these now, and figured I had better check the reviews for hints. I'm glad I did!

Great, I have been going to buy this pattern and was wondering about it. Have used some Green Pepper patterns before and really like them.

Great idea to write the names on the bottom! I'm thinkihg about making these for the kids, and the names on the bottom would be wonderful for sorting! Thanks!

I recently made a lot of these. I followed the jalie youtube sock video when I started sewing these. You are right that they are worth the under $10 pattern cost. I have on a pair now made from clearance priced remnants. Forget regular socks, I wear these everyday. You're right about the sewing time. It takes me about 30 minutes to whip some up and I try to sew at least 2 at a time. Instant gratification and the zig zag is cute. I tried to serge, but the seams were to thick and not comfortable. I leave the tops unfinished. I found the pattern at Joanns
