I have loved making things that involve using my hands ever since I was a very small child. Things have evolved since then. Sewing, quilting, smocking, embroidery, spinning and of course knitting and machine knitting. I have been designing my own knitting patterns for many years now, but more seriously during the last 5 years. Since 2008, my husband and I have been living aboard our sailings vessel "ONEDAY". We left Bayfield ON in August 2008 and up to this time, we have spent our time cruising the Eastern Seaboard and the Bahamas. For a couple of months each year, we return to our home in Ontario where I love to teach knitting classes which I create around my own designs. I have paterns for sale on Craftsy, Knit Picks, Etsy and on Ravelry also. You can find me under my name, Linda Sellick or "ONEDAYDESIGNS".

These adult "Hiking" socks will become a year 'round favourite.
The quick and easy to knit design starts with a provisional cast on and continues into a sideways knit garter stitch cuff. The cuff is completed by grafting the two ends together. Stitches are picked up from the cuff and the sock then becomes a conventional top down design.
Do not be put off by the word "hiking" - These cozy socks work well as warm and comforting slipper socks and are especially soothing to the feet after "working out", making them also perfect for indoor wear.
The design is written for 4 different sizes, ranging from small to ex.large, making them suitable for both women and men.
This design also comes in a separate children's pattern - "Tyke Hiker" Socks with sizes ranging from 6 mths to 8 yrs.
4.5 sts x 7 rows = 2.5cm in Stocking Stitch after blocking.
