So easy and quick - perfect for surfing and sewing - I have several pairs, long and short, and just throw them in the wash - they don't unravel or anything - no sewing needed, and a great way to reuse poor old, worn out socks!  Cheesy

What type of socks are you using? I haven't found any that don't start fraying after a few washings ( yes, I am lazy and don't feel like tacking the cut edges down... or even knitting a pair...) I like that black pair you are wearing!

glad you like them!  Smiley

yes just above the heel and straight across  Smiley

cowspots I just use regular fine knit socks - I think anything chunky or ribbed or fleecy might fray, but fine guage knit seems OK so far  Smiley I figure as the socks were being thrown out anyway due to being worn through on the heel, I had nothing to lose - maybe I was lucky that was the only type of sock I had!  Cheesy

What a great surprise....saw a gal in a magazine wearing dressy long fingerless gloves and thought that was soooo cool. Could not find any until I came across your remake.....thanks a lot! I may sew a little patch on mine or tiny buttons in a row.
