I do not know if there is such a thing, does not matter, I want something quick to sew up very easy, and why not Socks, we could make them personal and everything.

oooh that is so juicy, i once spent a whole day trying to find sewing patterns for socks, and eventually did somewhere- it's probably buried in my miles of favorites, but ended up deciding thin leg warmers made out of sweater rib-knit were just as sexy as long socks.

I use this green pepper pattern 527 Polar Slippers -
Adults/Kids $7.00 and make them longer so they are more sock like. I made a ton out of fleece for xmas presents

yah, that was the first type of thing i saw that i thought would work, i'd love to see a pic of your results.  i actually did find a more form fitting type looking pattern, although probably more complicated than necessary, gusseted and such, i just liked it in theory- will dry to dig up for fun.  i haven't really pursued this yet but i keep thinking if the fabric is really stretchy, the pattern wouldn't much matter, like some tights and tube socks.  your pattern is probably the most appropriate choice, just haven't seen it/ tried it yet in real life (i do a lot of mental crafting!)  i think there's a free version out there too.  i love socks, thinking of ways to make em easier, like a knitting machine, but this would be funnest.

I just bought a pattern by Favorite things. I think its called the boot slipper. You could probably use this pattern but just make them tighter fitting. Its unusually cold here in S. California and I'm freezing so when I saw this pattern I was thinking ahhhh I could have warm feet. I bought some minky to make them out of.

mmm-minky!  i just saw a silk sweater at the thrift store for like 50 cents i thought about recycling for this, but decided it was just too short (i like em loooong).  i should have just grabbed it anyway, what is wrong with me.

well if anyone wants to check it out, here's the patterns i found, tell me what you think: http://www.orbitals.com/self/history/stocking.pdf

I've had good luck with the Green Pepper pattern for fleece socks (in two lengths).  I think I made a couple dozen pairs two years ago.

Inspiration without application is moot.

Would any one be interested in joining me to restart this SAL?

I have the Green Pepper sock pattern and must say I do love it.

Very easy and lasts.
