All this tlk about embroidery on socks got me to do this pair about a week ago. I hooped a dble layer of thin tear away, turned my socks inside out and pinned down to stabilizer. I sat there and carfully watched to make sure the needle would not go thru any pins. Kinda tricky, but sure love the personalized outcome. I "DID NOT" stretch the cuff of the socks at all. Can't recall off hand where the pattern came from, sorry.

Joanie, you did a wonderful job! I haven't yet tried socks. They seem too intimidating to me!

Thank you. They may be small, but stitch up ever sew quickly. You should really try it. *4U ><>

Thank you. If you can do those mini mini nutcups, you can easily do this. The design is about 1 1/2 (w) X 1 1/4 (h)" *4U2 ><>
