Cockpit Floor Repairs – Water Drainage – NO WET SOCKS! (Patrick Childress Sailing #56)

our cockpit floor never drained fast orcompletely enough so we're going to add this big fiberglass and foam wedge tohelp get the water out hello we are Patrick and RebeccaChildress on the Valiant forty sailboat “Brick House” we have been calledhauled out in Richards BaySouth Africa and we are getting our sail boat ready to head down to Tierra del Fuegoonly because we have nowhere else to go and that's a cool sounding name butfirst there is more work we have to do to get this boat ready to cross oceansafter seven months of being hauled out of the water and all the major projectsout of the way now that we're back in the water and at a dock I can take careof some of the smaller but equally important jobs like adding slope.



alittle extra pitch to the cockpit floor so let's go up to Hayden's shop and justjump right into making the foam panel fiberglassed on one side that'll give usthat pitch okay we're going to come in here and see Hayden Hector from KTC Projects – one of thelocal contractors.

okay hi there Hayden how How are you doing? hey so today's the day wemake a panel yeah it's for my floor and it'll be set up on this big glass sheet.

My laminating table I call it.

okay and the first step is going to be what putting a couple of coats ofRam Wax on so it can release from the table So first your man is going to be putting on ram wax onthe glass table and how many coats will he be putting on? He will be putting on threecoats and then he will start the layup so what you've already done is taken two piecesof foam and join them that's right.

And what did you join itwith? I just use hot glue to join the foam together, so I put a hotglue gun uh-huh glue it together just gonna holdit together until the fiberglass cures on the table okay that's quick hot gluethat's it and it doesn't have to be any stronger than that? No, once it's glassed inits as strong as it will ever be.

Thats where it gets its strength.

Yeah The fiberglass is the strength.

All the foam is doing is doing is acting as a former.

Bufan has made hundreds of these fiberglass foam panels and first he defines the areawith blue tape so he knows exactly where to roll out the polyester resin and thenlay down the pre-cut sections of chopped strand mat and roving then it is a quickroll out of a thick layer of polyester resin.

You can see how the resin is pulling away from the wax in some places.

This is because of the viscosity, the thinness of the resin.


it can't hold to itself, where as with gel coat it is much thicker so its bonds to itself and it doesn't allow it to almost fish eye on you.

You would get a very similar thing with spray spray painting on a waxy surface you would get your paint that would have a similar effect Bufan is using 450 gram, that's about16 ounces , chopped strand mat the next layer is woven roving also 450grams or about 16 ounces in imperial measure.

Rather the dumping more resin ontop of this roving Bufan is allowing the resin to soak up from the bottomupwards and that helps to push air and air bubbles out of the cloth and then herolls it out with a thin roller to help spread that resin and only when he needsto then applies more resin to the top of the cloth and then rolls that aroundto help make sure that all of the air bubbles come out and now the final layer of choppedstrand mat often times just called CSM The second layer of CSM is thesame weight as the first layer so now the foamboard gets a good soaking offiberglass resin before it gets turned over on top of the build-up offiberglass lay up to make sure that these cans of weightsdo not get glued to the new work a slick sheet of plastic is used toseparate the can from the fiberglass so it's 8 o'clock in the morning I cancome back about 3 o'clock in the afternoon and pick up my new panelpulling the weights off of the panel we can see how the fiberglass resin hasmigrated all the way up through all all these little perforations which are partof the structure of the panel and so it isn't just a face adhesion it is reallya good bond all the way through the foam panel oh look how smooth that is that isamazing it's also ideally I like to leave itovernight it's not it's like now to take her this looks fine, it's cured, but I justprefer to leave things overnight.

Sure get a good cure on it.

So Hayden what if on my panel if I needed it for something else and Iwanted it good on two sides not just on one side so that's obviously yourlaminates against the gloss, gel coat finish.



other side is your second layup asyou can see with the cross-section it could be your bottom layer with your laminate and then your foam foam core, and then you do your second layup on top of that consolidating with the steel rollerand then a layer of Peel ply on top of that and then everything gives you a grip surfaceokay so you're not worried about squishing everything down and like avacuum bag.

if you wanted to you could vacuum bag it but I don't dovacuum bagging on most of my panels hmm mainly panels I do are for cosmeticpanels I don't really do structural panels so as for structural panels ifyou're worried about strength and you had a spec to meet obviously the idealway to go forward with that would be vacuum bagging to consolidate it 100%.

well it seems like these are pretty darn strong as it isI mean laminating on two sides even without vacuum bagging this gives youyour strength that you need for for the application you're looking at.

okay greatthanks! FaNTASTIC! So if you want to do this at home in your garage and youdon't want to have to go through the big expense of a thick glass table a pieceof plastic laminate like Formica or wilsonart each not shiny piece would bethe best just lay it out on a good solid strong flat table and be sure to wax thesurface with at least four coats of car wax if not something better and do yourlay up and then put the foam on top of that and weight it down the way that wedid but if you want two good sides and nice and shiny you can go ahead and dolay up on top of that and then take another piece of plastic laminate lay iton top of course after shining it up with a about four or five coats ofautomotive wax then put a thick piece of flat plywood on top of that Formica tohelp distribute the load evenly and then weight it down and I think that willhelp to squish out any excess resin and make for a stronger product and alsogive you a nice finish on top if you're gonna be doing some laminating on thatupper surface of course just like what Hayden showed us you just put peel plyon top and that'll make it nice and flat and you can also still take a piece ofFormica on top then put a thick piece of flat plywood on top of that Formica tohelp distribute the load evenly and weight that down on top of the peel plyto get a little squishy effect and squeeze out in the excess resin that wayas well either way I think it's going to come out pretty darn strong and it's anice way to do it at home I think these homemade foam core panelsare very good for cosmetics and partitions but as far as using in a veryhigh stress high strength application you're on your own to figure out thatsuitability now I have to make a template of the floor to transfer on tothe panel I used some corrugated plastic easy to cut although the corrugationsbecause they all run parallel sometimes it's hard to cut the proper straightline to the corrugations hold your knife in a direction that you really don'twant to go clean all of this wax from the layup table often here make surethat there's no speck of it even though I'm going to be sanding thisI don't want to be sanding that wax into the rest of the surface so I'm usingacetone to clean off that wax according to Hayden's directions using a finemetal cutting blade this is pretty easy stuff to cut using 36 grit paper on thesix inch disk sander it makes it easy to fine-tune the cuts and also round offthe edges where it needs it but even 24 grit in this big heavy sander hardlymade a dent in this incredibly strong foam panel that was a big surprise so Ihad to get out the angle grinder with 16 grit paper and finally attacked it with I had to stop every once in a while and check with a straight piece ofaluminum for high spots and then I would mark and attack those high spots withthe 24 grit paper on the heavy disk sander once things we're looking pretty goodthen the big random orbit sander pretty well smoothed things out and gave thebevel that we were looking for the panel has a very nice taper a little more thanan inch a little more than 24 millimeters at its thickest end down toa knife edge at its bottom and then to prepare this panel for installation andtabbing in all that beautiful nice glass smooth shine had to be sanded off 60grit paper was used around the edges where the fiberglass tabbing will go and then 80grit inside the field where it's going to be painted nothing ever seems to fitright the first time so with a little marking and then sanding with a disksander and marking some more and sanding some more about four or five times itwas finally fitting the way it should so then it could be glued and tabbed in butnow we have to sand the floor and sand the sides of this cockpit and geteverything ready for the permanent installation first a good vacuuming andthen a good wipe down with acetone and clean paper towels don't worry aboutwhat the rest of this cockpit looks like all of this work is in anticipation ofpainting the entire cockpit a little later on so then I mixed up a big batchof epoxy resin thicken it up with cabosil and then spread it around likebutter all over the cockpit floor where this new panel is going to sit andespecially around the edges to help seal that up and get that ready for thetabbing this was just the start of the weights placed on this floor to helphold it down overnight bricks concrete all kinds of things were set in here togive it a lot of pressure so the next step was to thicken up some epoxy withsome easiest to sand filler make a fillit and then sand it so it'll be a nicecurved section for the fiberglass cloth we'll easily fold in around these edgesand then it has to be sanded and fared and then on and on and on.

These drum Sanders in the drillmade it a lot easier to get that curved surface all the way around the perimeterof the floor finally after a lot of sanding and fairing and cleaning I couldlay in two layers of lightweight cloth the first one was two and a half incheswide and the second layer would be four inches wide to fold in nicely around allof these curved surfaces and of course using epoxy resin so I mixed up 300grams of resin with slow hardener and that's a lot of resin but I worked justas quickly as I could I got the two layers of glass downstarted getting the peel ply in place and I could see oh no I'm losing thewar because the resin just went off on me and so I didn't get the peel plyas saturated as I really felt I needed to but what else can you do so we'll seewhat happens when we pull it up certainly there's going to be somefairing after all this is done oh how nice it's going to take some sanding andsome fairing but still not nearly as much work as like in the old days whenwe had to do a lot of sanding and a lot of fairing this peel ply is amazingstuff and saves a lot of work and out here in the middle it's so much betternow to have everything already completed that was done in the shop and havingthis panel pre-made for me rather than me fiberglassing all this Center areaand sanding and fairing it has saved me days of work and a lot of valuablelabour time with two-part primer and then two-part white paint oh it's sohard not to keep going with that white paint roller on the rest of thecockpit but it's day we'll be coming for the final coat on the walking surfacesof this cockpit floor I mixed up a little fine sand in the paint and thenrolled that around so I think we're in pretty good shape now certainly our feetare going to say a lot drier on that forward end of the cockpit If you like the video give us a thumbs up, a comment down below, leave a tip in the tip jar, and share this with all your friends!.

How to Give Socks to Homeless People.

– Where I started giving out socks and having them in mycar so when people come to ask me at a stop light for change that I give them socks instead and that it's amazing when people's face light up that particularlywhen it's raining out and they're standing there, and that I had a woman tell me that she was so excited to get them, because her socks were wet, and she needed to go change them, and that it makes me feel good that it makes a little bitof difference in their day and gives me a reason to talk to them, because I know that most people don't.

– Hi, my name is Mark, and I'm the founder of Invisible People.

I'm pretty sure I wasn't the first guy that ever handed outsocks to homeless people, but I can almost guaranteethat there's nobody that has handed out as manysocks to as many homeless people in as many cities and asmany countries as I have.

In the last 10 years, I havetraveled to over 300 cities and eight differentcountries handing out socks and making new homeless friends.

Now, there's a couple of reasons why handing out socks is so important.

First, it's a real need.

So many people go out and hand out food.

Socks is something thathomeless people don't often get.

Or they're getting sandwiches all day long but it's very rare thatpeople go and hand out socks.

So there's this nonverbalconnection that says, “Ah, you know, you care.

” But probably most importantis that socks are a real need to people who areexperiencing homelessness.

Imagine that all you haveto store your clothes on is your backpack that you carry all day, so you have maybe a couple pairs of jeans, maybe a couple of shirts, maybea couple pairs of underwear, and some socks, and they get dirty.

They get dirty fast.

What happens is homelesspeople can wash their feet, but often they have toput back on dirty socks.

– I've been wearing thesame socks for over a week, and I haven't had replacementsand I do wash my feet, but the old socks gotta go back on, because I don't wannaget fungus and all that on the bottom of my feet.

You know? So when you're living in the street, you can't take off your shoes, because you wake up without 'em.

People will steal your shoes.

Fungus grows.

– [Mark] Socks are like gold? – Yeah, they're gold.

They are.

– Another reason to giveout socks is it feels good.

It feels good helping somebody else.

Trust me.

Sometimes when I'm feelingdown or a little depressed, I will fill my backpack witha couple of bags of socks, and go out and hand themout to homeless people and make some new friends.

My problems don't go away butI get this new perspective that really helps me deal with life, and I guarantee whenyou're giving other people the gift of brand new, fresh socks, you're gonna get all kindsof amazing responses back from smiles to jumps for joy.

I even had a homeless youth once yell, “White gold!” And you will be recharged and refreshed.

– You guy were gracious enough to give me a brand new pair of socks, which I'm gonna be so happy to put on, 'cause they'll be snugly and clean, and they'll cling to my footlike socks are supposed to, and thank you so much.

– [Mark] Well, when's the lasttime you changed your socks? – It's been a couple weeks.

I washed them out.

Actually, he washed themout for me and dried 'em, and they were hard and yucky, so I get to put theseon brand new (laughs).

– [Mark] Hard and yucky? – Yeah.

– So here are some tips on how to give out socksto homeless people.

The number one question I get is what kind of socks do I buy and what kind of socks do I give away and what kind of socksdo homeless people need? The number one sock you should buy are men's white, white crew sock.

Men's white crew sock.

Don't buy the no shows.

Don't buy tube socks.

Don't buy ankle socks.

And don't buy black sock.

People prefer whitesocks over black socks.

Occasionally, I will takeblack socks and white socks with me and give people a choice.

99 out of 100 times, a homelessperson will say white socks.

I also recommend Hanes socks.

Now, in full disclosure, Hanes occasionally hires me as a consultant and Hanes gives me socks, but I am not being compensatedfor this video whatsoever.

I am doing this, becauseHanes is the best sock for you to buy to give to homeless people, and there's a couple reasons for that.

Hanes is a wonderful, comfortablesock at an amazing price.

There's a lot of buyone give one brands out for the cost of one sock.

For one of the buy one give one brands, you can buy 12 pairs of Hanes socks.

Or at Walmart, you can get deals like this where you get 13 pair, soyou can give out 6 pairs of socks and keep 6 pairsof socks if you wanted to.

Or you could give outall 12 pairs of socks for the price of one pair of sock.

I want homeless people to have socks.

I want them to have quality socks.

So that's why I recommend Hanes.

They're available in Walmarts, and there's Walmarts in every city.

I have to tell you.

When I go to another countrythat Hanes are not so common, people on the streets are blown away.

They're like, “Oh my gosh, these are so comfortable.

“These are amazing socks.

” I've given lots of different socks away, different colors, different sizes.

Hanes is the best sock, the best sock for the money for you and for homeless people.

Safety first.

If you don't feel safe, don't engage with someone.

Now, this is not just homelessness.

We live in a really scary world.

If you don't feel comfortable, don't go down that street.

If you don't feel comfortablewhen somebody tries to panhandle, don't engageand give them socks.

You have to feel safe andcomfortable wherever you are.

Your safety comes first.

I also try to give every homelessperson two pairs of socks.

Sometimes that's not possible.

If I walk into a groupthat's rather large, then maybe I'll go downto one pair of sock.

If the group is way too big, I may not even give socks at all because when I went to school, the teacher said if youdon't have enough gum to give to everybody in theclass, don't bring it out.

So I go by that rule.

One of the things that I findinteresting is that often when I'm handing outsocks to homeless people, they will only take one pair.

They want another pairto go to somebody else.

Occasionally, which is really rare, somebody will ask for more.

Or they'll say, “Hey, mygirlfriend is down here.

“Can I give them?” I don't.

They have to be right in front of me.

I give them two pairs, everybody, two pairs of socks whenever I can.

There's a lot of different waysthat you can hand out socks.

You can, like me, carrysocks in your backpack.

Maybe carry a couple pairs inyour purse or your briefcase.

You can keep a couple ofpairs in your glove box for when you're at that exit ramp and there's a homeless person, and maybe the light turns red, or there's a stop sign, andit's really a little awkward.

Well, you could take that awkward moment and turn it into something wonderful by handing the homeless person some socks.

I often get asked by people, “There's a homelessperson in my neighborhood.

“I see 'em, I walk by 'em.

“I want to know his story.

” Well, a great way to breakthe ice is giving some socks, and then listening.

When I give somebody a pair of socks, I try to make conversation.

Little trick I use is that Icompliment them on something.

Maybe it's their jacket.

Maybe it's their hair.

Maybe it's their hat.

Maybe it's their bicycle.

But, I usually start offand I walk up and I say, “Hi, how you doing? “Would you like some socks?” And if it's not a homeless person, they'll be like, “Get out of here.

” If it's a homeless person, you're gonna see them immediately start glowing with gratitude.

The reaction it's when youoffer a homeless person socks, are I often laugh and Ifeel bad because I laugh, but I so enjoy their response.

I mean, it's almostpredictable that I know they're going to respondin some joyful way, but I never know exactly howthat response is gonna be.

So I chuckle sometimes.

So after I meet a new homelessperson and have some socks, I might say, “Wow, that'sa really nice hat.

” And then I start conversation.

Now, maybe they are not very sociable.

Or maybe they're focusedon something else, and this is not a homeless thing.

I mean, you can go into work and your coworker mighthave got a flat tire or a fight with his wife andthey don't wanna talk either.

Remember, homelessness is horrible.

It sucks.

So people might not be in a social mood.

Or maybe there's mentalillness or some drugs involved.

So at that moment, you'll knowif that person has a wallop and doesn't wanna talk orthey'll give you an opening and say, “Thank you.

“Thank you for commenting on my hat.

” And then you can juststart on some small talk and make a new friend.

Also, a great way to engage community into charity work anda learning experience, let's say you're a church or a youth group or maybe a Rotary club or a school, starting a sock drive andmaybe connecting to one of the local shelters or homeless services is a great way to engagecommunity and learn about homelessness and provide a need and help people all at the same time.

I know people that keepsocks in their briefcase, in their backpacks, in their glove box.

I know people that go outin groups to hand out socks.

There's really no right or wrong way.

Whatever works for you.

The only rule is the law of the street, which is respect everybody.

If you respect people, homeless or not, they're gonna respect you back.

And that's the same thing whenyou're out giving out socks.

Respect people.

Treat them as you wouldwant to be treated yourself and you'll get that respect back.

And it will be an awesome experience.

Let's recap.

The number one rule:if you don't feel safe, don't engage with people.

That's not just homeless people.

That's anywhere.

If you don't feel safe, don't engage.

Number two: the sock thatyou should buy to give out to homeless people or to giveto your local church or school for a sock drive, men's white crew sock.

No other sock.

Now, I recommend Hanes, becausethey're an amazing value and a wonderful sock, butyou can grab whatever sock is available at whatever store you go to.

Again, men's white crew sock.

It can't go wrong.

Number three: I alwaystry to give two socks to every homeless person.

It doesn't always work out that I can give two pairs of socks, butthat is what I shoot for.

And last but far from least is have fun.

Some of the most amazingmoments of my adult life has been out on the streetswith a backpack full of socks making new homeless friends.

Helping somebody in crisiswith something so simple as a pair of new socksmakes you feel grateful for what you have, becausewhen you hand them new socks, you're gonna see amazingsmiles, shouts for joy, and you're just gonna go, “Wow, my life, I was upset “about this today, andthis person is happy just “because they got new socks.

” It's an amazing experience.

Prevent DVT On Long Flights | Exercises To Prevent DVT | DVT Flight Socks | Reduce DVT Risk (2018)

ok, interesting fact over 300 million people travel on long-distance flights every year now that's a flight that's generally over four hours long blood clots are also called deep vein thrombosis or DVT for short and it can be a serious risk for some long-distance travelers now in this week's

video I've done some research into the best ways to help reduce your risk of developing a DVT whilst traveling so let's begin so a DVT is a clot that forms in a deep vein and it's usually in the leg serious health problems can occur from DVTs so what

can happen is parts of blood clot can break off travel to the lungs and cause a blockage which we call a pulmonary embolism the risk of developing a DVT from travel is quite small though and research shows there's 1 DVT per 4656 flights that last four hours or

more and the good news is there's loads of things that you can do to help reduce your risk so let's begin firstly compression stockings now these are probably the easiest things you can wear to help reduce your risk of a DVT theyalso help reduce swelling in your ankles

and your legs and we call that an oedemain the medical world now the compression stocking that you need is the class onestocking and class basically means how much pressure it puts on your leg classone has the least pressure so it's the easiest to wear really and it'ssufficient it's

good at what it does it's fine and it helps to prevent a DVTthe length that you need is below knee okay there's a thigh length one as well butit's really long and you don't really need to wear it below kneeclass one the most important thing about these stockings

is that they fitcorrectly and you wear them properly okay, in terms ofwearing them read the box read the information leaflet that comes with iton how to wear them so you're doing it right but in terms of fitting properlyI'd highly recommend everyone to visit their local pharmacy so they

can measureyour legs for you and pick the right size that's suitable for you now theymight not have it in stock they might have to order it in but it's definitelyworth it because if it doesn't fit right it's notgonna work and it's a waste of money remember though compression

stockingsdon't replace the fact that you still need to remain active and do thingswhilst you're on the flight now let's move on to those go for a walk up anddown the aisles every hour or so when the seat belt signs are switched off ifyou can do it more often

that's even better every half hour or soyou can do these mini exercises while seated foot pumps lifts toes withfeet on the floor then lift your heels and continue doing this for 30 secondsknee lifts lift your legs to your chest with your knees bent alternate your legsand repeat 20

to 30 times ankle circles lift your feet and draw a circlewith your toes towards then away from each otherfor 30 seconds drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration and don't drink toomuch alcohol either as it can dehydrate you and cause immobility my last tip isto wear loose comfortable

clothes whilst traveling so basically don't wear what I'mwearing and also avoid taking sleeping tablets because if you're asleep for thewhole flight you're not going to be able to exercise you're not going to beable to stay hydrated and it's not going to help you prevent having a DVT and

that's it you now know how to reduce your risk of getting a DVT whilsttraveling long journeys and if you have any tips for everyone else on how toreduce their risk of getting a DVT as well then leave a comment belowI'd love to read it as well it's also

worth mentioning that certain medicalconditions can increase your chances of developing a DVT on long flights ofeight hours or more so I've left the full list in the description below checkit out and if you or someone in your family falls into those groups then it'sreally important to speak to

your GP before you travel lastly and I promise this isthe last point it's also really important and useful to know thesymptoms of DVT and pulmonary embolism so I've left them in the descriptionbelow please read it and that's it finished have a great flight hey guysthanks for watching this

week's video make sure to click that like follow orsubscribe button now to stay up to date with new weekly videosI picked the black stockings because that's my favourite colour thought blackstockings would be a bit cooler but there's many different colours you canget beige you can get sand “Can

you see me in that?” We can see you in it Lewis “Is it that wide?” you're there “I'm wanting to walk past that's all” you can go mate you can go (LAUGHTER) now thecompression stockings that you need (LAUGHTER) do you wear your stockings “I always have my stockings

on, can't leave the house without them” good good

Come scegliere una GRIP SOCKS | Equipment

D: Hi guys i’m Davide and today we are going to talk about one of the most popular setup in a footballer.

D: But First present to you the inevitable Borriellone who will talk with us about this topic.

D: today we will talk about the main brands producing technical soccer shoes, the “grip” socks S: surely it is a very important theme for those who play football D: Absolutely now the use of the standard soccer sock is a bit outdated S: Of course those who do not play professional is led to have a low-level sock, so look for a solution that improves comfort D: In fact, it is interesting to understand why so many professionals use a “grip sock” compared to the stockings supplied D: As I deepened some time ago the topic “why footballers pierce the socks” and “how footballers cut socks” (one of the brands we analyze today offers a complete package on this theme) D: today we will analyze all types of socks S: in fact brands like nike and adidas currently provide the top clubs with “cut” socks to allow you to use this type of sock D: the main brands for grip socks are: SoxPro, TapeDesign, Trusox and Pdx.

S: we start from Trusox because it is the brand that started this type of setup in wearing football socks D: Trusox has two versions available, the thinner “thin” (which I did not particularly like) and the “cushioning” version which is more thick S: So you (and maybe who is in vision) do you think the thinner version is worse than the thicker one? D: Yes, I prefer a little bit of thickness in the socks with grip to not have too much the feeling of “paper” under your feet D: in fact I had found a comparison with much better socks like Tape Design or Sox Pro, more thickened S: Everything is subjective.

For example, I prefer a thinner and not very thick grip sock, just because I want to feel good grip with the playing shoe.

S: As we always say with Davide, it is important to put your needs first, so there will never be a better product, but the best for you S: for example I tried the Trusox Cushioning and I did not get well because “ate” a measure in my shoes and I had to take bigger ones D: personally, when the stocking is thicker I feel safer.

A psychological factor also .



S: Of course we can discuss subjective things or not, but there are some objective aspects, sure to be addressed D: i started with Trusox and after to Tape Design and for me it was a step forward.


S: You know that for me (i’m joking) Tape Design are sock like when you are babies and the floor is warning… D: Surely one thing we want to tell you is that to give a judgment on a stocking of this type, you need a constant and constant use, so as to have all the answers S: in fact, another important aspect is washing.

Remember that the sock must last over time and maintain its qualities after many washes D: After Tape Design (which at the time I thought was the best) I tried Sox Pro which surprised me positively S: Let's say that, even in my opinion, between the two socks that do not have the internal Grip, but only external, Sox Pro seems even better to me S: So, let's look carefully at the details of the internal grip or not together.

S: Pdx Perfect has a soft internal and external grip, along the whole plant and also the heel, if you have even “mid” shoes the grip will come up to the top.

S: This is definitely one of the strengths of the product S: The same concept for the Trusox, with the difference (and it may or may not) that the type of grip is identical for both the exterior and the interior.

It can be a bit “stiff” .



S: It must be said in addition to before, that in relation to the price, Trusox is worn very quickly and loses its initial softness a lot.

D: They really cost too much .



D: in fact, in my previous review I pointed out that there was a good grip, but with less comfort S: This is why my net preference definitely goes to Pdx, as well as for the lower cost (€ 25 against over € 35) also for production in Italy and the fact that the socks remain soft for a long time D: back to Sox Pro, in the interior we have no grip, we can measure it only in the comfort of the material.

D: Designed in Italy, the production is China.

even Tape Design is Danish as a proven .



S: The socks obviously come from different parts of the world, but we want to focus on the products themselves and not their commercialization D: Giving a personal opinion, I can say what I think is the best (assuming that I could not try Pdx thoroughly, I will try to do it as soon as possible) D: Between Trusox, Tape Design, Sox Pro, I prefer Sox Pro.

S: for the needs you mentioned, it makes sense! S: Having thoroughly tested all the socks (Tape Design not so thoroughly, but because it does not reflect my needs), I definitely say Pdx Perfect.

S: this because for the type of yarn of which the sock is composed, and above all a great grip without an excessive thickness, it perfectly meets my needs D: We know well that the softness of a sock, to the touch, counts.

Then you have to see in the field during use if this reflects your needs S: certainly if I thought I had to work out, Sox Pro would use it safely, I prefer something different in the field D: Then you have to understand how these socks are worn .



S: Certainly the advice that I can give is to try them all and decide the best for you .



D: Sure! As you have an opinion and a choice when we talk about shoes, the same goes for socks D: we also want to show you how one of these brands gives the “package” complete with sock and sock already “cut” S: We use orange but you can use the color of your club S: important to say that when you play an official match you should use the sock under the same color of the sock S: So you wear your Pdx first (in this case) and then after putting the shin and all, wear this sleeve that you can place as you like best D: It looks like a pair of compression stockings similar to leg warmers D: also because the alternative you have is to brutally cut the stocking of your suit, however questionable choice and that needs tapes and anything else S: and neither does it swell up if you blow in .



D: laugh….

S: for example since I was a child I suffered from cramps (tell us in the comments below your needs and experiences .


) D: absolutely write us doubts or curiosities related to each of these stockings and how you organize yourself D: so let us know everything below in the comments, which product you like and why! S: For me it is very interesting the topic of the sleeves, as I have always hated scotch and tape to have to put and everything.

Now it is much more immediate and convenient D: I think we said everything there was to say about this exciting topic D: we have analyzed in detail all the grip socks products of the market and find all the individual reviews on the channel S: Do not worry about writing us in direct on instagram in addition to the comments below as already said D: As usual put like and comment below with all you wants to know about this video and other curiosity about world of football boots.

Check the Instagram profile @bootsculture to find all the boots spotted and more… D: I remind you to activate the notifications to receive all the updates and to follow the stories that you find daily on our instagram page, bye!.


Hi guys! Welcome back to my channel This time I'm going to share a product for exfoliate the dead skin or remove the dead skin cell especially on the foot I don't know about you, but I always get a pleasure to see a peeled dead skin That's probably why I always love seeing my hand with scalling / peeling skin and I get that satisfaction to peel it off one by one Then I saw this video on Youtube, it's about a product that looks like socks We are required to put it on for about 1.

5 hours You'll get your whole foot's skin peeled off on day four-six.




OMG! I'm so furious to try it! I finnally got it from A lthea Korea I mean Althea Indonesia The product's brand is Calmia, which is this one.


So in here.


we have the socks pocket and these two are the liquid that well be poured into the socks So, without further do, I'm gonna try these socks now.


and I'll update starting from the day when the peeling process begin Basically, there are two pockets that we will tied up on this part.

and the liquid will be poured.


into here.


*awkward giggles* How can I open this?? It's so difficult.


Your feet will be going in here and then following by the liquid.

On the inner part, there's another fabric layer So make sure you are getting into the fabric layer I'm gonna pour the left liquid Ohh.


it's so watery, I thought it's gonna be slime-y You want to make sure to distribute the liquid evenly I'm sure the liquid is enough for the whole feet I feel wet all over it and tied up the pocket.

On the other brand, I've seen them tighten and close the pocket with tapes This one is not taped but tied up which I think more convenient and easy Now I'm gonna cover this with socks so the liquid will be well absorbed by the skin Okay now I'm gonna continue with my right feet It's 1.

5 hour already, I'm gonna rinse it now.


This is how my foot look like after I rinse it Please ignore the sunburn.


I wear sandal a lot.


The most obvious change is, my nails look cleaner and brighter but there's no sudden change on my skin It's not peeled off right after the soaking It just looks normal and doesn't feel extra smooth whatsoever I just finished shower, and I realize there're more skins opened each time I take a shower from the first day it began to peel This is my right feet The left one have the peeled skin first and right after shower the right feet got some peeled skin too I don't know why but it always started in the middle and then following by in between the fingers Between the thumb and pointing finger and here.


but the most satisfying part is this one At first I feel pessimistic that it will turn out like this Because I can't really find the review on youtube about this product and I was following this video from youtube to wear socks after putting on the peeling socks and I think, wearing socks help me a lot to achieve this result The first time it started to peel is the fourth day if I'm not mistaken.


and it become more extreme after I get into bath tub I was soaking it and yeah.


I got these.


This skin is not thin, it's actually quite thick, I doesn't tear when I pull it off and it doesn't hurt at all I feel nothing.


Now I'm pulling it.


and it gets wider and wider.


Budi : can you pull that? Agustine : yess, it's just so big! Budi : do you want me to help you hold the camera? Agustine : I'm good! You will disgust this.


Budi : But you won't get a good angle that way.


Agustine : I'm good So BIG! Budi : You only get the side look babe.


Agustine : I did the rest *Budi help me with the camera at the end* *Thanks babe!* Agustine : I'm glad we're married.

You can't runaway now.

Budi : Ilfeel.


(losing the feeling of love) Agustine : You'll be fine once I cooked for you! Budi : Only God know when you'll finish Budi : It's never ending.


This one.


this one.


I want to get it into the record.

So this is day twelve from the first day I started using the peeling socks and the whole feet already been peeled off including the back part.




there's this bit part.


that has not peeled yet.

But overall.


Almost every part is done and the most significant change is on this part.

I used to have callus on this part to the point where I can peel it with callus shave and extract small pieces of dead skin now it feels noticeably softer.


but this part on the thumb hasn't really change.


I think it's because I got thicker callus on this part.

so this part still feels hard and thick Everything is good, feel so smooth All my fingers used to have a dead skins too, but now they are totally gone So yeah, I think the product really works for me but if you don't have a serious callus problem or a huge dead skin on your feet.

I don't think you might need this Because I can feel that on some parts of my feet, the skin feels thin So that's it for the review now If there's any other product that you want me to try.

how to curl your hair with a sock 🙈

Hey everyone, welcome back! For today's look Irecommend having clean hair.

Start by combing through your hair to get rid ofall the kinks and now we're ready to dry our hair.

I recommend drying the ends ofyour hair 90-95% and the roots 100%.

You should always dry yourroots 100% anyway because you don't want to get a headache when you'reolder.



at least that's what my parents told me so we'll just go with that.

And now that your roots are dry and yourends are a little damp, a sock should magically appear.

I'm just kidding Istole this one from my boyfriend and no worries if you're single.

Just throwyourself your own sock.

It works just the same.

Now let me show you how I foldthis.

I don't know if you can tell but I definitely stretched it out quite a bit.

Itused to be pretty short but now it's much longer so I definitely suggest youget a sock that you don't care too much about anymore.

I like to fold mine into3s and it doesn't really matter which way you fold it as long as you canget it to look something like this.

For waves like mine, aim for this thickness.

Butif you do want smaller tighter curls then you can go ahead and fold it upeven smaller than that.

Or just use a thinner sock, whichever way works for you.

And that'll give you some nice little ringlets.

But for me I like to just foldthem into 3s.

I find that this is the best way for me to get some waves.

Thegoal is to leave enough space on both ends of the sock so that when you wrapyour hair in the middle section, you still have some room to work with andsecure your hair in place.

With the sock already folded right in front of you, start to gather your hair at the top of your head so that when you're layingdown at night you can still sleep comfortably.

Go ahead and grab your sockand put it right behind your ponytail and make sure you leave a little endsticking out so you can tie it up later on.

Okay here's where it's gonna get a little tricky but don't worry.



I promiseyou it's gonna be so worth it when we're done! Start to wrap your hair around thelonger end of the sock while bending it in a way that basically makes a donutshape on the top of your head.

Honestly whatever method at this point works foryou you should do that.

For me sometimes I like to hold down the shorter end of thesock with my fingertips.

Other times I like to use my palm which I'm gonna showyou in my next clip when I do a close-up.

Other times I just let it go completelyand it just works.

When all of your hair is completely up just tie a simple knotin the back of your head.

And when you're tying the knot.



make sure to invite me.

NoI'm kidding.

When you're tying your knot make sure to go in the direction ofwhere your hair was being wrapped because you don't want to go theopposite way and then start pushing your hair back out.

And definitely do not bemessy like me right there! There are little bumps that shouldn't be there.

Ifthere are while you're wrapping, try your best to smooth it out and be as neat asyou can.

As you can see it's inspired by the donut bun method except we don'thave to use a scrunchie here because that leaves a dent in my hair.

For thisclose-up I do want to show you what it looks like with the scrunchie only as aguide to make your lives a little bit easier when you're starting out.

SoI've already went ahead and started off my loose ponytail, making sure that it's nottoo tight so I can glide the scrunchie through later with ease.

And again makesure that it sits on top of your head so you can sleep comfortably at night ifthis is for overnight curls.

So now we're gonna take our sock–either side is fine–aslong as it's a few inches away from the end of the sock.

I'm actually gonna usethis other end just because we didn't use it the other time so just to showyou that it works either way.

Again place it on the back of your ponytailand wrap your hair along the longer side of the sock and now we're gonna slowlyglide our scrunchie around it.

If it's easier use your palm to hold it down onone end while you use the other hand to wrap your hair, making sure that you takethe scrunchie out because there's been times when I just like completely forgetand I leave it in there.

I mean, if your hair doesn't dent you could totally dothat but my hair is a mess when it comes to scrunchies so I'm not even going tomess with that.

The trick is really just slowly bendingyour sock into the shape of a donut.

That's where the hard part I think liesbut yeah so definitely hold down your hair making sure that you get all partsof it.

This is supposed to be an effortless curl look so it could be alittle messy but you don't want to create that mess yourself, you know whatI mean? Now we could finally lose that scrunchieand tie it at the back, making sure to put the sock with the direction of thehair so you aren't pushing it back out.

Now if there are any loose ends justtuck it back in and you're all set.

This is what you're gonna be sleeping in orif you're bold enough walking around the grocery store.

See? No scrunchie, no dents!I like that this is a healthy heatless style but if you do want to expeditethe process then you can definitely use a blow dryer to.



dry your hair.

What else?Just make sure you don't burn your hair or sock too much, but I don't really needto do this because I have some time! So I will go do some stuff and I'll see youin a bit.




actually the clip already changed andI couldn't even tell when I'm doing this voiceover.



anyway! So this is the revealpart of the video and it's a lot messier from the back.

I couldn't tell from thefront but don't worry! It's gonna be all cleaned up in a bit.

So just carefullyunravel it and soon you're gonna have really nice effortless blowout lookingcurls.

Hair spray, texturizing spray is optional.

Last step is do not forget toseparate this sock from your boyfriend's other socks or else he's gonna look likea mess.

Anyway, I hope you guys enjoyed.

I reallywant you guys to try it out and if you do, please send me a DM or tag me onInstagram.

I have layers in my hair so I don't know if that affects how it lookson other people, but I'd really like to see.

Maybe try this out on a Sunday firstcus I don't want you looking disheveled.

Alrighty! Thank you SO much for watchingand I'll catch you in the next one.




Sock Merchant HackerRank Solution [O(N)]

Hello everyone welcomes to my YouTube channel.

today we are going to talk about sock merchant hackerrank problem.

In this problem, we havegiven an array of integers representing the color of each sock and we have to determinehow many pairs of socks with matching colors there are.

We will first look at the inputformat, the first line contains an integer n, the number of socks represented in the array.

the second line contains n space separated integers, describing the color array of thesocks in the pile.

Let's try to look at the example first.

this line represents the numberof elements present in the array which is 9 over here and these are the nine elements.

guys here each number represents one color of this socks pair and our task is to findout how many socks pairs are available.

so here if you can see the first element is 10and we have one more 10 here so this one pair.

20 & 20 this the second pair.

and wehave 10 and 10 one more pair.

so totally have 1 + 1 + 1 equal to 3 pairs this is theanswer .

so our task is to if given an array of n elements and we have to find out howmany socks pairs are present.

so let's try to understand the algorithm behind this hereI am taking the same example guys which we have seen in a sample.

first here we willtake one set which is empty set and a variable or counter which will maintain the pair count C.

initially it will be zero so you can see this the count and we will process the elementone by one in a set so whenever we found anything in the set it means we got the pair and wewill remove that pair, that element from the set and increment the counter.

let's see howwe are going to do it.

first we will process the 10 so the counter will be zero so we willprocess the next element 20.

20 is not present in the set so we will add the 20 here so counterstill will be zero.

We will process the next element which is again 20 so if you can seeguys 20 is already present it means we found the matching pair.

so we'll just remove thiselement from the set and increment the counter because we got one pair of socks.

now willprocess the next element which is 10 as we can see 10 is already there so it means wegot one more pair of socks.

so will remove this element from the set and increment thecounter to 2.

Now will process the next element which is again 10 so, because it was emptythere was nothing so we will just add into the set and still the counter will be 2.

Nowwill process the next element 30 and will check whether 30 is present in the set ornot because 30 is not there so we will just add that element into the set and the counterstill remains same.

will process the next element which is 50 and we will add into theset because there is no 50 over here now, we will process again the 10 and we can see10 is already there.

so will remove the 10 from the set because we got another pair of10.

so only 30 and 50 will be here and will increment the counter by 1.

because we gotone pair of 10.

now we will process the next element which is 20.

So here you can see, we will have 20 over here because 20 is not present here and the counter will remain thesame.

Once we have done with the processing will come to know that set will be containingthese three elements and the counter will be 3 which will tell this is the final result.

and these many numbers of pairs are present in the array.

so, this is the logic guys, nowwill see the solution.

so, this is the method, guys.

in the method we have n which representthe number of elements present in the array and an input array.

so we have taken a HashSetover here and this the counter which will calculate the sock pairs count and we aregoing through a loop and we are looping from 0 to n -1 and we are taking each element fromthe array and checking whether set contains that element or not.

If set contains that elementwe are removing that element from the set and incrementing the count as we did in ouralgorithm and if set does not contain that element we are adding that element into theset.

so once we have done with the loop the counter or the count variable will hold theexact matching pair of socks and we will return that Let's try to run this code on hackerrankplatform so, in this, I am just copy-pasting the code here and try to run.

so guys you can see sample test case got passed.

I will try to submit my code.

congratulations guys.

it is accepted by hackerrank platform so I hope you got the idea how we are going tosolve this question.

guys I have committed the code on GitHub and link is mentioned inthe description box.

so you can download the code from there.

If you think this video helpedyou to gain some knowledge then please subscribe to my YouTube channel guys.

thanks for watching.


Hartland WI Chiropractor: Does Wearing Socks To Bed Help You Sleep Better?

Hey everybody Dr.

Seth Barr here.

You might be wondering why I have these crazy glasses on and it's because on today'svideo what I want to talk to you about is an incredibly important topic and ifthere's one thing that I could recommend that you do to improve your health thathas far-reaching effects on every single aspect of your health it's just onething and that is to improve your sleep.

Now why sleep so important? Well as Imentioned sleep is the one area that you can improve that has vast reachingeffects on so many different areas okay.

If you get better sleep, you improve yourbrain function, you help your body to heal, you balance your hormones, youincrease your longevity.

Even sleep is tied to weight loss because if you'renot sleeping well your hormones they're not balanced and when the hormonesaren't balanced is very difficult to lose weight.

People who don't get gooddeep sleep they predispose themselves to Alzheimer's and dementia even.

So sleepis incredibly incredibly important.

So what I want to do today is I want togive you seven tips, actionable tips that you can take and actually implementtoday to start sleeping better.

A lot of times people are taking sleepmedications or pills or drugs to sleep better and while that may work a lot oftimes those have often nasty side effects to them and they aren't in yourbest interest long term.

So 7 tips to help you sleep better.

Number one and the biggest most important is get on a routine sleep schedule cycle.

As you know our bodies have circadian rhythms to them and if you can get on a regularsleep cycle that's going to be very important too.

The best time to go to bedis around 10:30 p.


give or take a window.

So if you can go to bed earlierthan that that's actually even better but stick in a regular sleep cycle.

Nowyou might be saying “well Doc that's great I go to bed at 10:30 anyway but Istay awake for three hours and I can't fall asleep.

” Tip number two: good sleepactually starts with what you do in the morning believe it or not.

And so there'sa couple things that you can do in the morning to help you sleep better.

Number one isget natural sunlight meaning get outside and expose your skin and your eyes tosunlight.

20 minutes of sunlight before 11:00 a.


is gonna help you sleepdeeper and better.

The second thing that you can do is get exercise in themorning.

This doesn't have to mean you're gonna go to a high intensive intervaltraining class I mean just get moving and so what I like to recommend forpeople is get outside the morning and go for a nice brisk walking.

You're gonnasleep a lot better if you do that.

Now the third tip that I want to talk aboutis and let me take a look here proper temperature.

This is an easy one.

Set yourthermostat.

The colder the room the better okay? So if you actually can loweryour temperature in your room to 65 degrees Fahrenheit that is the idealsleeping temperature.

The fourth tip is one of my favorites and it's wearingsocks to bed.

Believe it or not, research a research study in 2007 found that bywearing socks to bed adults actually fell asleep quicker.

So the answer is yessocks can help improve your sleep.

And the last three that I have here deal thelast two deal with light.

Okay we've all we all know that screen time before bedis bad.

But why is that? Well it's bad because the blue light from the screensactually disrupt hormones in your body that put you to sleep.

So if you stayawake or are on your phone right up until you go to bed it's bad.

You're notgonna get as deep a sleep.

So put away the phones for at least an hour or two – no TV, tablets, computers, cell phones.

Put them away for at least an hour or two – and you'rereally gonna improve your sleep.

Now this is where these glasses come in.

If youcan't put your screen away you say “hey you know what I need to work late.

” Youcan buy a pair of these.

These are called blue light blocking glasses and theyactually block the blue light and you might know some people said they lookcool some people say they look goofy.

I'llleave that up to you but they actually work.

So this way if you do need to worklate or you want to watch some TV it's not as good as taking away the screencompletely but it's still an effective strategy to havein place.

The other thing, the last tip that I want to give you is or actuallythere's two more.

One is to black out your room completely.

So put duct tapeover any small lights.

If you need to buy new curtains, blackout curtains, do that.

But you want to have a completely dark bedroom not any light in your bedroomwhen you fall asleep.

That's gonna help you get deeper sleep as well.

And the lasttip is to help get your body into a restful state before you go to sleepokay.

So that is gonna be things like doing deep breathing or meditatingor prayer.

Any of those that get your body in a calm down state is gonna work.

I like the deep breathing one it's very easy to do I call it box breathing.

Youjust breathe in for five seconds, you hold for five seconds, you breatheout for five seconds and then you hold with no air in the lung for five seconds.

And if you do that for let's say five rounds what that does is actually helpscalm down your body get your body into a restful state and you end up going intoa much deeper sleep.

So those are the strategies.

I apologize that this videodid go longer than just a couple of minutes.

I'll try and keep the other onesshorter.

But those are the strategies.

Implement them, let me know what youthink, take them all and use them take some of them and use them.

But do let meknow how they help you and as always if you have any questions feel free toreach out to me.

We are here for you.


Should You Wear Crazy Socks / Colorful Happy Socks ?

Welcome back to the Gentleman's Gazette! In today's video, we discuss crazy socks, the pros and cons, and whether you should wear them or not.

Some of you may wonder, do I actually wearthese socks? The answer is, unequivocally, no! And I'll explain why here.

So what exactly are crazy socks? They are socks that have bold colors, boldpatterns, and whimsical motifs such as footballs, baseballs, or a solar panel.

You can find them in nearly every color underthe sun and sometimes they have comical motifs or serious motifs or just something that anartist came up with.

In the last three years, they have almostbecome mainstream amongst casual business cultures.

Maybe inspired by Silicon Valley or just astart-up culture where formal traditional dress codes are not enforced.

Many many people think crazy socks are a goodway to express their unique style and personality, yet let's discuss the pros and cons.

First of all, a crazy sock really makes astatement and you're definitely different that you stand from a crowd.

If that's your ultimate goal, crazy socksare a good way to achieve that.

Now, standing out could also mean being theodd one out or being weird and crazy socks have that potential cause they're just sobold and outlandish that they don't work with anything.

They're just contrasting and make an extremestatement.

There's no room for subtlety at all.

I think all the men gravitate towards thembecause it's relatively easy to pick up a pair of socks and then think, you're done withyour outfit.

However, if you want to have an elegant stylish outfit, just changing the socks is not enough.

First of all, ask yourself, “Do I want toidentify as a well-dressed gentleman?” If the answer is yes, you should probablynot wear crazy socks because they're simply over the top.

A simple bold obnoxious accessory won't makeor break the look, instead it draws attention to itself and so people wouldlook to your feet rather than your eyes.

You want them to look at your face and notat your feet.

A gentleman can be eccentric and you can createan entire outfit that frames you as a person even using some louder accessories.

But if thereare two out there, you just destroy the overall harmony.

Would you wear tacos, beer mugs, or dinosaurson your ties? Probably not and therefore you also shouldn'twear them on your socks.

Reason #2, it's a cry for attention.

It basically says you can't get people to lookat you or get an interest in you in any other way, that's why you choose something that's so overlybold and out there because it's your last resort.

Bold crazy socks like this one basically communicatethat you're desperate for attention which is never a good place to be.

The third reason you should avoid crazy socksis that they're often of low quality.

In order to keep the price low, you have togo with low-quality materials that means a lot of nylon that means a very limited rangeof sizes because that way you can stock more and it's easier and requires a lower capitalinvestment.

Of course, figure in different sizeand you have a size 13, you need a different pair of socks than you would have size 8 While doing research for this video on crazysocks, we actually found that often times they only come in short lengths and neverover the calf and they have a lot of nylon and come in very limited sizes.

Most of the time it's one size fits it all orthey have three sizes at the most.

So the problem is, those socks will slidedown inevitably and expose your ankles which is not something you want to show to others.

The cotton used is of lower quality.

It's stretched with nylon and polyester tokeep the price point down and basically what you pay for is the design or the eccentricity.

In theory, you should be able to find qualitycrazy socks but in reality, it's super difficult and it's just not the case.

In essence, crazy socks are a disposable fashionitem and it's part of a throwaway culture because it won't stand the test of time.

It's not something you can wear on and on andon.

It's not just something that combines veryeasily with other items in your wardrobe and for that reason, we suggest not to wear them.

Of course, the choice is entirely up to you.

If you want to send a statement that way, gofor it.

If you wanna be a well-dressed gentleman witha timeless wardrobe that is elegant and highlights the person behind it, avoid them.

Instead, go with solid color socks or maybetwo-tone socks such as the shadow stripe socks.

That way, you still can add some personality andcolor to your outfit without going overboard and looking obnoxious.

Also, bear in mind that if you have crazysocks, you are less likely to be taken seriously.

Usually, those socks are associated with teenagersor hipsters but not with men who work in office environments or professionals.

So who could wear crazy socks? It's perfect for people who want to be outlandish, geeks, or artists who have the Mona Lisa on their socks.

For example, if you have orange and grey, it has a brown tone so you could wear it with brown tones.

You could wear it with a pairof denim, and they're colorful so you could pick up an accessory like your tie or yourpocket square and combine it in a way that's meaningful, stylish, and it will earn youcompliments.

For example, here you could see a royal bluesock with a subtle pair of clocks on the outside paired with seersuckers and brown suede shoes.

It works really well.

It's not too outlandish but still very stylish.

If you want to learn more on how to pair colorfulsocks with your pants and shoes so they look stylish, please check out this in-depth videohere.

As a conclusion, it's okay to go with bolder socks, try to either stick to solid colors, or patterns, don't combine them.

Otherwise, it's over the top.

Learn to Knit Magic Loop Socks – Part 4

you're at a point now where you have finished knitting the short row heel and as I said it will actually change the direction of your knitting if you're following along with the pattern that we're using for this lesson you should have 12 stitches left and we're ready to

pick up stitches for the gusset and let me show you on the example here this is the heel flap this was turning the heel now we're going to pick up stitches on both sides of the sock for the gusset so that we can continue knitting the foot and

let's me show you what that looks like okay remember I was just letting my cord hang here using my addi click needles I'm actually going to need to reattach them now make sure I do this correctly ok handy things to have these interchangeable needles I encourage everyone to

go buy a set but it's hard to convince a new knitter to go spend that much money on a set of needles they don't know they're going to need it yet ok so using the same needle that you used to pick up to do the short row heel

we are going to pick up stitches along the side of the heel flap here first thing I want you to do is to roll that so you are seeing the very most edge stitches which are a hole v running up this way you want to pick up 11

stitches along the side of the heel flap here you put the needle in through both legs of the V wrap it and pull it through and I'll tell you it should work out mathematically the way we had it so that 11 comes out every time but it never

does I just had to skip one here to try to make it work so 2 4 6 8 10 12 2 4 6 8 9 and I skipped one which is going to give me the opportunity to shove one stitch down in here where it doesn't really seem

like it would go but it will keep me from having a hole right here in my sock the tighter I can get that in there so I kind of grabbed one stitch out of no so we are going to do the magic loop trick here we have the

the turning the heel stitches here and all those picked up stitches here and we're going to shove the core the needles close together and pull the back one long we're going to work across the instep stitches without doing anything fancy just plain knitting okay and then we're going

to pick up 11 stitches on the other side and you know something I forgot to tell you to do is to place a marker right here but I have these awesome markers that come apart and go back together tada okay so now I want you to place a

marker before we start picking up these stitches and using that same needle grab one in there kind of tight to keep there from being a hole in your sock and then pick up both legs of the V 11 times up the sock nine ten eleven perfect okay now

remember we had 12 stitches left in the center of the the the 12 stitches left and we after we turn the heal we want to get back to the very center back of the heel here so I'm going to knit half of those stitches onto the same needle

I was just working so six I'm going to knit six more off of here one two three four five five six and now we're at the center back of the heel and that's what we want to be the new beginning of our round we have our markers placed

and we want the center of the front to be where the cord pulls through because that'll be exactly half on each side so across the instep stitches two four six eight ten because there are twenty instep stitches we're going to pull the cord long there and now we

have the cord set up like this the center back of the heel is the new beginning of our round and the cord pulls long here at the center of the instep stitches instep stitches now for the rest of the of the gusset you're going to knit up to

the first marker three stitches from the first marker knit two together knit one knit across the instep stitches and you know of course you're keep pulling your magic loop cord through each time when you get to the second marker you will knit one SSK and knit to the

end the next row is a plain knit row and you'll follow the pattern to get yourself back down to the original number of stitches working a decrease round every other row and it will look like this then you will knit the foot plain plain knitting no shaping nothing

fancy until the pattern tells you to stop and start doing toe shaping and for the pattern that we're working here that is an inch and a half short each one you tried to sock on there's an inch and a half of your big toe sticking out and I'll

see you back here for toe shaping Oh

Crochet Baby Socks

And welcome back to Redheart.

com, as well as The Crochet Crowd.

I'm your host Mikey, and in today's tutorial we are going to explore the wonderful world of baby socks.

I've never done a crocheted tutorial sock tutorial.

I should say, ever before in my life, and there's a reason for that, and I'll tell you in just a moment.

And what we have here is a six month to twelve months size.

This is my own pattern.

Took me five hours to figure out all the math.

Just to being able to frog it, and to do it, and then to create an identical one that comes out to the exact same size, is absolutely wonderful.

Now you'll happen to notice that, both of the striping is really close to each other.

You'll see that? That's an absolute fluke.

I didn't plan that.

It just happens to be that almost one sock when you finish it, ends up restarting the yarn again at the same point, to be able to fasten it again.

These socks though, because they're so designer like, I wouldn't stress about trying to match the colors with each other.

That's the whole beauty of crochet socks.

So let's explore, and I'll talk a little more about Baby Crochet Socks.

So crochet socks are one of the hardest things I've ever had to do, because I've tried it in the past, but I can never get a second pair of socks (lol) to be the exact same size.

(Mikey giggles) I should never admit that, but it's absolutely true.

And the reason for that, is that I either miss count, or something, and it has everything to do with the slip stitch for when you're joining it.

But look, there's no slip stitching is there? You see that? So I had to figure out a pattern that would work for my own personality.

Because I swear, I think there's a lot of people out there that absolutely love to do crochet socks, but they get hung up on the slip stitch, because then they start adding extra stitches, and then they start miss counting.

So within my pattern, there's no slip stitching at all, except for at the very end when we go to fasten off.

Everything else is done in continuous circles.

So we just continue to go round and around and around.

And by doing that you end up with this beautiful line, and so you'll never see any weird lines, going up in it.

So what we had here is that these two pair here are done with this ball here.

This is the Red Heart, uh Heart & Sole.

This is Berry Bliss.

You can see that I have a lot more extra yarn.

I believe, but don't quote me, that I think that you can get two pairs outta one.

I did weigh this while on the postage scale, and I think that it can be done.

So it's one of those things, you don't want to waste any yarn, though if you're going to do it, it's pretty close to the line.

So with one ball of these, you can get two bear, uh pairs of baby socks.

Now everybody's commenting, I would love to do a baby, boy project instead of all the girls that we always focus on.

So today I'm going to be using the Red Heart & Soul Faded Jeans.

I've never used this yarn before.

I have no idea how it's gonna turn out, but this one I would classify to be more boys, or more casual even for girls.

So let's go through, some of the pattern now.

In the more information of this video you're gonna find a direct link to my exact pattern on everything I used.

You will tell that it's my pattern, because I'm very long-winded with some of my instructions, because I really do wanna aim you with the knowledge that you need to know.

So what, what this sock is doing at this point, is that we're gonna start off on the toe, and we're gonna start working our way around, and we're gonna grow it evenly, until we get to a certain size.

And you'll notice that, as we work along.

And then what's going to happen here, we're gonna get to a certain point, and then all of a sudden, we're gonna single crochet, and all of a sudden create a foundation chain, and it's going to take you up over here.

And what's going to happen in this tutorial today, and the reason why I really like this design, is that we're going to be creating this whole area first.

Then we're going to immediately come around, and then create a foundation chain, and finish the rest of the sock.

Leaving this without a heel.

The heel is done at the very end of this project.

So this is one of those things where you really don't have to stress it, because in actual fact, this stuff here is so simple, even the heel is so simple.

But because we have started off at the bottom here instead of the top, um it ends up looking and being a lot more easier to manage.

So today we're going to be using, using a size “F” a 3.

75 millimeter crochet hook today.

I'm gonna be using the Red Heart, in or, Heart & Sole, (Mikey giggles) and let's get started.

Let's begin, and grab our yarn, and let's play with this pattern together.

To begin, we need three stitch markers.

These stitch markers should be a different color from each other, so that you can tell exactly what they are.

So what I want you to do on your pattern, or unless you're following along.

I want you to write down on your pattern, and say blue equals the start.

Yellow equals the halfway point, and white equals another.

You may have different colors.

This is just scrap yarn for me.

This is so critical in order to keep your pattern straight, for when you're working on it.

So let's grab our yarn, and we are going to just simply just tie, or do a slipknot to be begin.

Just like so.

Let's grab our crochet hook, and to begin, all we need just need to do is chain three.

So one, two and three.

Now what we need to do, is that we need to put three single crochets in the second chain from the hook.

So we're just gonna come into the second chain, just like so, in, and we want to put three.

So one, two and three.

I find always starting off with thinner yarn, I'm always a little more conscientious.

So I got three in there, and what I want you to do just pull up a loop like this, and I want you to grab the one stitch marker that you decided that is going to be your first stitch marker.

So this is going to be the beginning round of my work going forward.

So I'm coming to the second stitch that I had, so you had, you had three single crochets, come to the second and grab your stitch marker, and just pull it through, like so.

And so this stitch marker blue will represent every time we're starting a round.

And because we're doing a continuous round, is that this will always mean that for me.

So let's uh begin, continue along sorry, and what we need to do, is just pull everything back tight to your hook.

So now we have our starting round position.

We're gonna come to the second chain which is the last chain, and we are going to do three single crochets again.

So one, and two and three.

Just get that straggler out of the way for you, and three.

And we want to come to the second one of those group of three, and mark it with another stitch marker.

So yellow is going to represent my halfway point around.

So basically these stitch markers are sitting on either side of the sock.

So if you're looking at a child, and looking straight down, these stitch markers would be on either side of their foot.

So to finish off this round as per my instructions.

We're just going to pull everything back tight.

I want you to come to the very first stitch that you started off with over here.

Okay, so there will be three stitches, one, two and three.

I want you to single crochet into the beginning of those three.

So just into there.

The starting is really cumbersome, but, this is totally worth the effort, because once you get, get it going it's worth it.

So I'm coming into the starting one, that I started off with, to finish off this round.

Because we're working in a continuous round, we don't want any slip stitching.

We're just going to finish off there.

So we're finishing off the stitch before the beginning stitch marker, just like this.

And that completes off round number one.

Just start off round number two, very simple.

So this is the stitch marker.

This is your first stitch.

This stitch marker.

There's gonna get three, single crochets into that stitch.

So one, two and three.

And again, now that we're going around there, I want you to grab that stitch marker.

So go to the second one over from the three, okay, and just grab the stitch marker and pull it through that.

And that will represent the new beginning as you come around.

And now I want you to single crochet the remainder.

Going around until you hit the stitch marker once again.

So one.

So I'm not even going to count.

I started counting because I normally would.

But what we want to do is get to the second stitch marker, and we wanna put three single crochets in here.

And so we're growing the front of the foot evenly, and only on each side of the foot.

So now that we have our three, you guessed it.

We are going to put the stitch marker in the second one of the three, to maintain it.

So these stitch markers will always stay opposite to each other, on either side of the foot.

It just helps you to keep count, and to be able to identify the stitches after.

And what we want to do then, we want to come in and single crochet the remainder, all the way back until you get to this stitch before the beginning stitch marker.

So there's the stitch marker right here, so I want to go to this stitch before and stop.

And that will complete off round number two.

So we're back, and you will notice that in round number two, I will have put instructions at the very end that there was ten stitches.

So you should count ten stitches going all the way around this, in order to stay in balance.

This is so important for, when keeping your socks, because you want them to be the same size.

So now we're gonna move up to number three, and we're going to repeat again the last step we just did.

So we're gonna start off with this stitch marker, and we're gonna put in three more double, uh single crochets into there.

The bigger this project gets, the easier it is to hold, and the faster you will get at it.

It's just when it's so small like this it gets really cumbersome.

Pull up a loop, and I want you to come, and I want you to bring that stitch marker to the second one in from there, and bring it through just to keep moving it up.

If you want perfect socks, you're gonna have to bear with that.

So we're gonna have to come around now, so we're just going to immediately come to the next stitch, and we're just going to single crochet the remainder until we get to the next stitch marker, at the halfway point.

So yellow is my halfway marker.

When I originally started I had stitch markers all with the same color, and it's impossible to remember, and you start second-guessing if you've gone all the way around or not.

So now we're at the halfway point, and we're gonna put three, uh single crochets in the half way.

Pull up a loop, and bring your stitch marker into the second one of the three.

Just to keep it balanced.

And now, I want you to put it back onto your hook, and single crochet yourself the remainder of the stitches going around, until you get to the stitch right before the stitch marker.

So I'm really anxious to see how this yarn turns out.

I've never seen it done up.

So here we go, and so we're right before it, and that will complete off round number three.

So now, if you count all the way around, you should have 14 stitches instead of 10, because we've just grown it, a little bit more.

Let's move up to round number four.

Round number four is again a repeat of what we already are doing.

So this is the stitch marker.

We want to put three more, single crochets there.

So our goal is to, to uh increase, (lol) our goal is to work our way up to 26 stitches around.

So now the second one in, so I put three in the first one, the second one in I want to move that stitch marker in.

Um, I really like yarn for stitch markers just so you're aware.

It's not because I'm cheap, because I do have real stitch markers, but I like to see the line within my work.

So we're now gonna come and we're going to single crochet ourselves, all the way until the next.

So just regular single crochet all the way until we get to the next stitch marker.

And when we get to the next stitch marker, we're going to put in three single crochets there.

So I, I would find with myself, is that even though my stitch count was absolutely identical in the second sock, I found the second sock was just slightly a different size.

And the reason for is that you will know it yourself, once you go through a pattern once, you get more comfortable, and you, you're not guess, second guessing, so you're kinda blazing through it.

Therefore your tension is slightly different, so if that happens to you, it's nothing really much to worry about.

The size is really minimal, but you will tell it, because you are a crocheter.

So once you get in your three, you moved up your, your stitch marker, and we crochet all the way back to the stitch, before the beginning stitch marker.

Just like that, and so that will complete off round number four, and now you will have 18, going all the way around.

So round number five is identical as well.

So round number five.

We're coming, um starting with the stitch marker again, and we are going to put in three more single crochets in there.

I keep wanting to say double crochet.

(lol) There's virtually no double crochet in this thing.

So we're gonna just move the stitch marker up again, to the second one in.

Just like that, and then we want to continue to rotate around, so single crochet again.

So you will notice that this is almost creating oblong or uh, elliptical shape.

Because of the way that we're growing it on the one side only, that's exactly what you're looking for.

So this is not a circle, was never meant to be a circle, but it's actually the fact, uh the front of your foot.

Okay so we're coming to the halfway point stitch marker.

See with these things, you can just pull up more yarn, if you need more yarn.

It's kind of a cool thing.

And once we're there, we're just gonna put in three, uh single crochets again.

Three, and then we just continue, oops, second one in, we've gotta make sure we move that stitch marker.

There's nothing worse than losing your point on this project, because then that's when you end up with the sock looking like it might have a weird twist to it, because you're not growing it exactly where it needs to grow.

So we're now going to single crochet the remainder of the stitches all the way back to the center, or sorry, to the beginning of um, stitch marker.

Which is blue in my case.

And just going across.

I think I already said it, but I'm dying, to see how this yarn works up.

Okay, so we're coming to the before point, and then that concludes off round number five.

So we have one more round of growing, and then the rest of it becomes really easy.

Let's begin round number six.

This is the last time we're going to be growing this project.

And so the stitch marker we're gonna begin with three, uh single crochets in there.

So one, two and three.

And we simply just move this stitch marker.

So even though you're not growing it anymore from this point, you still want to move that stitch marker up.

And we want to continue to single crochet the remainder, going around to the halfway point.

Just like so.

So the single crochet really kind of acts like it's knitting in some way.

Some of this yarn looks a lot better, if it's not, if the stitches are not too big.

The colors look like they transition a lot better, and you get some really beautiful striping as a result.

So we're at the halfway point, again three singles in there.

And again move that marker up.

Sometimes, see how I didn't pull a big enough loop, sometimes it does happen.

I just want to make sure that we, to make sure we did get it in there.

So there you go, so sometimes it does fall out, and then we just come around in there.

So technically that would have been an outtake for me, but I'm gonna leave it in, because I want you to see the, the point.

That you really do need to make larger loops when you do that.

So when we come all the way to the stitch marker, we are concluding growing the toe, and we are going to move on to doing the foot area.

And this is the toe, this is between the toe and the heel, so let's finish this off, and this is concludes the toe region right now.

So we're just before the stitch marker, please do not fasten off.

If you ever do want socks with a different toe color, you can also start off with a different color, and then change the color here at this point.

So let's begin.

We're going to go between the toe and the heel next.

Let's begin between the toe and the heel.

I pulled up a loop already, and what I want you to do, is that I want you to slip your hook in behind that stitch here, just there, and I want you to grab another piece of string.

This is your third stitch marker.

The reason why I'm asking you to do this, is that this is gonna indicate to you how many revolutions you are going around this project.

So just pull the loop through, and grab the yarn, and pull through, This is going to come out afterward.

But instead of counting and moving up these stitch markers, which is very time-consuming for this this duration of this part of the project.

This is a great way in order to spin around the project, and being able to have a marker, so that you can count and know exactly where you started.

So this is right here.

So what I want you to do at this point, is that I want you to start on the next stitch, and that's in the stitch marker.

Leave the stitch marker right where it is, okay, and it will be on the inside.

So we're gonna leave it on the inside here, and I want you just to continue to rotate around here, single crocheting for 13 revolutions.

So wanna make sure we got everything.

So we're just gonna continue to go around, and basically the white stitch marker is an indication of where this started.

So just like the rings of a tree that you can count up.

Once you start counting these blues right here, and you can count 13 rows, really easily, because you're just spinning around.

So what we want to do, is just continue to rotate around 13 times with single crochet, and this will take us to the starting of the heel.

And when we come back we're gonna start and work up the leg, because the heel is the very last part of this project.

So even at the stitch marker, just leave this on the inside, and just continue to go over top of it.

You're not gonna move it.

You'll do it later, and just continue to go around 13 times.

So just a few minutes ago I left you, and now I've completed my 13 rows.

Now how I counted that here, is that here is where the white is, so starting from where, just to here, ok this blue happens to be right where I started my way.

It just happens to be a fluke, and you just count up, and you make sure that there's 13.

So 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12, and 13.

And when you do that, therefore, you know the done right.

So essentially I can now pull out the stitch marker at the bottom, because that's the only thing that I needed that for, at this point, So that's out, done, and now I need to bring the stitch markers back up now.

You will notice how it stays flat like this, and it's basically due because I'm only growing on one partial portion of this I need you now to bring these stitch markers back out of the dark, and I want you just to kinda bring up them right here.

So we have the blue, and we have yellow, to be done, and they're sitting right in the center.

So you can take them right out at the bottom.

This product naturally wants to fold on itself, so you can just pull it out.

So when you fold these, for example, is see how it's wanting to stay flat? So you know it's done perfect.

So what I want you to do is right where we ended, I ended exactly where I think that the ah, side is, and the key is I think, and that's because it looks really close to me.

So you know it's not a rough, it's not an exact science.

It's just what I'm going right into the edge.

So now I want to bring in the stitch marker again, the blue, that's my starting, because that's where I've brought it in from.

I wanna do that one, and essentially I want to pull everything nice and tight there in just a moment.

But here I wanna, here where you do want to count, is that you do want to make sure that you're on the halfway point.

So you wanna make sure you can count over to 1.

So 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13.

See how 13 is exactly on the other side? So I wanna put the stitch marker in on there as well.

And we need to have these in there for the remainder so that we can follow it properly.

So let's bring everything back tight to our hook again, and let's begin and we're going to start doing the leg.

So we're going to totally skip the heel at this moment, and I'll show you that will just make more sense in just a moment.

So to begin, what I need to do, is that I need just a single crochet.

So this here is the top of the foot, okay that we're going to single crochet, now is the top, and it will totally make sense in just a few seconds.

So we're gonna single crochet ourselves all the way to the other stitch marker.

And we're currently looking at the right side, just so you know, so the side that we've been working what the whole time is the right side.

And we're going all the way to the stitch marker, and once we get at the stitch marker we're gonna start doing the light part, and we're going to totally skip over the heel.

Okay, so we go right to the stitch marker itself, right onto that stitch, right there.

So now we're gonna do a single crochet, but it's going to be a foundation chain, and what we're gonna do is we're gonna create a chain that's going to totally jump over this whole back-end area.

So to begin foundation, what we just need to do is come in to, see how there's two strings right now coming from that stitch? Just go to the first one, okay, and we pull through.

You now have two loops on your hook, and then pull through two, and that counts as one.

So the next one here is the second one of the string, okay so you'll see how there's two strings right here? It's the second one over.

We're coming in, we want to make sure there's two strings on top, we pull through, and then pull through two, and that is the number two chain.

So we have two.

It's creating a beautiful chain so that you can operate on both sides.

So again going in, pull through, pull through two, and that was for three.

And continue to do that all the way until you get to 13.

So now that I have my 13 foundation chains.

I wanna make sure that this chain is not twisting at all.

So you see how it's going up flat? And all I wanna do is come right back to the beginning blue one here.

This is the beginning one, and we just want to single crochet in there, just like this.

And so essentially now this is the starting of the leg.

So this would be where the heel is going to be, and now we're going to start working up in a vertical formation.

So let's begin, your next step, right now.

So step two is really simple.

All we just need to do now is to continually rotate around here four more times.

So we're just going to single crochet, but this time when we get to that chain we want to just operate the chain as if it's a regular project.

And so you will see then, when we get to the other stitch marker that you know, it's going to lift and we're going to start playing within the chain.

Now because we did a foundation chain, it would be very easy to identify your stitches, on either side.

And I found with myself I don't move my stitch markers at this point.

And what I want you to pay attention to, see this big gap right here? That does happen, so what we want to do is that when we come in here, I want to come all the way down to the original where it's happening, and then single crochet around that.

And what that will do, is that it will bring it so that it's going to cover that gap, just like this.

And so now the single foundation crochet, the foundation single crochet.

I'm simply just going to, just work around the chain, for single crocheting as well.

So this corner gap space there does happen.

Really not sure exactly why it does, and it's one of the downfalls of making socks.

You need to address it, right at that moment, because it's something that if you leave and say well, you know what it'll work itself out.

No way it won't.

So if you can see that right in that very moment, it makes the world a difference of being happy at the end.

It probably does happen on both sides here.

So it's one of those little tidbits of information, especially when loom knitting you see a lot of that gapping right in that particular spot as well.

So we're coming all the way back around.

I'm still single crocheting into the foundation chain.

Okay, and I got one more to go.

In here, see I'm going to have a gap.

So what I wanna do, is I want to come all the way down to where the stitch marker is, and do that, and what that, what that will do is, that'll just bring everything closer together.

So that was round number one of four.

I want you to go around three more times.

It's really easy to tell um, where the stopping and starting is so I don't bother to move the stitch marker.

So rotate, three more times around this and I'll meet you back up, and we'll start doing front and back post double crochet.

So I've now gone around four times, and you can start seeing that the heel shape is perfect, and it's still working up.

So now we're gonna change this particular round only one time, and you can tell that I haven't moved up the stitch marker.

But you can just follow up the stitches and determine where this blue one is stopping and starting.

And so the next stitch I wanna do in the next round, is that I want to half double crochet all the way around, and, we're just gonna continue to do that.

And I want to mark this stitch here, right when I did that, I wanna mark it so that I know exactly where I'm starting.

This one, sometimes it's harder to tell, um on the half double versus the single at times.

So I'm just putting a stitch marker right in, so I can tell exactly where I've started my half double.

And I want you to half double all the way around, and when we get back we're going to start doing some more fancier stitch work at that point.

Now that I've gone all the way back around, I stopped right over top of the stitch marker.

So now I want to begin front post, and back post double crochet.

So to do that we're gonna wrap, and we're gonna come into the very next one on the bottom on the underside, and we're gonna just pop it through the back post only, and just come in, and we're just gonna do a double crochet.

So there's other tutorials on showing you how to back post, and front post double crochet.

We're gonna do the back post next.

So we're gonna wrap, we're gonna come in from behind, come up through the front, pop that next post backward, and then pull through, and then double crochet as always.

Okay, and we wanna continue to do that back and forth.

So the next one is front, and the next one is back.

So do this whole one round, just doing the same thing, and when we come back I'm just gonna just show you another quick tip, and then the rest of it.

There's only three rounds of back loop and front back thing, and what this is doing is it's creating the rib look, or the cuff look of your socks.

So just do that, and we'll meet me back up in just a moment.

On the original sock that you can see here, you can see ribbing, and this is caused by the front and the back post crochets.

So what we need to do is that I've just completed the first round, and next one here.

You see how this is popping forward? The other ones popping in the back.

We just have to simply match what's happening.

So this one is the front, and we just do the front post double crochet.

The next one is in behind so then we just have to match it, so that we can continue to keep those ribs going in the same way.

So I want you to complete two more rounds of this, of the ribbing, this includes this one.

And when we come back then, we're going to be finishing up, the top of this sock.

So do that, and we'll meet you back up in just a moment.

Now that I finished my back post and front post double crochets, so you can see the ribbing is now in.

All I want to do is just continue to rotate around here twice.

And we're just going to immediately start single crocheting, and do this twice and on the last two stitches of the second revolution I want you to slip stitch, and I'll meet you there in just a moment.

So slip stitch, or sorry, single crochet all around again two more times.

And I've just completed my two rounds, and now I'm just going to slip stitch into the final two stitches going around, and then I want to be able to fasten off.

So grab your pair of scissors.

You will need a darning needle.

It's the best way to go.

You are using this on a child.

And I'm just creating an extra long tail, so that I can use a darning needle, and just grab the yarn, and just pull through th last loop and all the way through.

So to do this with the darning needle.

It's very simple.

It's just grab a darning needle, and we just want to put it on, like so.

You should get all the plies in there.

And essentially I want to come into the direction from which I just came.

So I've been crocheting like this okay, so I want to go back in the direction from which I just came.

So I'm just gonna slip in my needle into some stitches, and I wanna make sure that the needle is not really visible on either side.

It's just in between, all the stitches, and then just pop it out through the back, so through the inside of the sock, and pull through.

And when I go to do this, I wanna make sure I do loosen it up a bit, and now I'm gonna go back into the same direction from what, or the direction from which I just came.

And again, I'm just going in a different spot, and through, like this.

And I want to do this one more time, so I'm just gonna go into a different area.

And what this does is, it really fastens this off so that you can pull it in any direction, and it will not come loose.

And I want to get all my plies out, and simply just ah, just trimming it at this point right there.

So then that concludes off then, doing the sock on the top level.

So now we still have the heel left, and these are where the stitch markers that we have in the middle, are going to come into play, for the remainder of this project.

So when we come back we're going to finish off the heel and make this sock look totally amazing.

So let's begin.

I'm going to create a slip knot and I'm going to put this on to my hook.

And we want to come to the sock again, in the beginning marker.

So this is right where it's folding.

Just like where we left off.

So I want to come in right where in the blue, and I want you to bring in the new yarn.

And I want you to make sure that you get this straggler trapped into position, so the child's feet is not catching on it, or foot catching on it, and you just want to push through.

Okay, so what I want you to do, is that I want you to single crochet into the same stitch from what you just were in.

Okay, we're gonna pull things nice and tight, and then we're just going to simply just go around.

So remember how we said already in the beginning, is that we didn't want to have any extra gaps? Well the gaps happen right here, on this, on these turn on, these turning points right here.

So we wanna make sure that the first one, when we go to look at it that it's not, there's not going to be any really obsessive gaps, to do it.

So if you can just see, bear with me here.

So if I did it right now you might have a major major gap.

So we're looking for that right now because this is the time to address it.

So we can always just grab a few extra strings, in other stitches in order to pull things nice and tight together.

So I'm just gonna move this straggler out of the way, and just come in, and we're just going to simply just grab something.

(Mikey giggles) It's kind of cheating in many ways, but it, you'll love yourself after.

So I just grabbed it so that you don't see any major gaps, and we are just going to work our way around.

Make sure this straggler is on top of the line so you can trap it into position, and we're just simply working around the foundation chain.

So when you're going around you want to make sure that you never just grab one string, you always grab at least two when you're going all the way around, because if you only grab one that's where you're going to have a major hole in the back.

So we're gonna just do this all the way to the halfway point, which is the yellow.

Now I've done enough of this that I can leave that on the inside.

I'm just going to continue to go along, so I want to make sure I just get everything in there.

So the first one is always the most critical revolution.

The rest of its all really easy because you know the stitch work is already defined for you.

So what we want to do, is that once we get to that stitch marker, we want to stop in the last stitch before it.

And what we want to do, so here is the stitch, I want to stop right here.

So I got one more to go, and the reason why I want to do that is that I want to do two together.

So I'm going to grab this one.

But you see how there's a major gap there? When I do that? So I'm gonna just come up and grab something else, from maybe a line before, pull through.

Okay, and then I go into the stitch marker pull through, and then I'm going to bring two together.

Like this.

And then we're going to carry on going around, so this is the round number one of the heel.

So essentially we are now going to start decreasing stitches.

So we're going to run out of stitches as we go around.

Oh! What I do want to make sure though, before I go any further, is that I want to make sure that I move my stitch marker up right where I did that.

So the stitch marker would then will be on the one, that has the two together, because then this will make sure the seam is going up evenly on this side of your, of your child's heel, or leg, or foot.

(Mikey giggles} Name a body part any body parts, .

So I'm just going to single crochet again, and so I'm gonna finish off this round with a two together, um like on the last one.

Now when we started the other part of the sock you notice that we always start off with the stitch marker being like the different stitch of the three double, uh single crochets in the middle, uh in the stitch.

This one here on this revolution, what we want to do, so here's the stitch marker.

You can see that this here is a representation, so I want to come into the one before hand, and I want to come into the new round that I was just in.

That I just created and bring it together, and then bring up that stitch marker.

So that would conclude off round number one.

So this video is really critical for being able to identify those gapping spaces right off the bat, so that you don't end up with the project you don't like at the end.

So let's move on, to round number two.

So we have four more revolutions of what I'm about to do.

We're just gonna start single crocheting into the first stitch, and then what we're going to just do a single crochet all the way to the, to the half, and we want to repeat exactly what we've already done here.

So there's only five of these revolutions in the heel all together, as far as what we're doing right now.

So this is row number two.

Or round number two.

And we're just going across, and I want to stop the one before the stitch marker.

So here's the stitch marker, so I want to get the first one, pulling up, then this stitch marker one up, and put them together.

I want to move that stitch marker up, so I can see it in the next revolution.

Like so.

And then carry on in the back of our, sorry the other part.

So just make sure you pull everything tight when you let things go.

And we just immediately start into the next stitch.

I'm sure we can identify it.

There you go.

And so I want you to do this, so this was our two of five rounds that we need to do.

So I want you to do rows number three, four and five, identical to what you're doing.

The only difference is, is that you're gonna run, you're going to get low on stitches.

You're not going to run out of stitches.

But I want you to do the rest on your own, and remember when you get back to finishing a round, this is when you double crochet, uh put two together on the final before starting the next round.

So here is your stitch marker in the beginning, this is the one before, the stitch marker, one in and put it together, and move that stitch marker.

So please do rounds three, four, and five, exactly what you've just seen done.

And when we come back then we're gonna to be finishing off the bottom of the heel.

We're almost done with this project at this moment.

So were now almost done with this project and we've gone a rounds number one to five, where we were decreasing, and now the next round, round number six, is that we're gonna start doing something really serious, and really pulling it in just like so.

So you can really get a good sense of how the sock is looking at this moment.

So for round number six we are going to single crochet two together, all the way around.

So I'm just tucking in the loose ends, just are the markers, just to get them out of my way.

So all I'm just going to do, is that I'm going to, in the first stitch, is just, in the next one is that I'm going to put two together, all the way around.

So then the next two are going to put together.

And once we get all the way around, essentially everything just divided in half, so what was left open will then automatically fall into half.

Because we're decreasing every two stitches, we're making two stitches into one basically.

As we go all the way around and you'll see that this will be a very dramatic round as you go around.

I'm not even gonna worry about the beginning, or sorry, the halfway point stitch marker at this point.

It's at the point, it's the very last line anyway, so okay.

So we're just going to continue to go all the way back to the stitch marker.

Just like so, and I'm gonna get the stitch marker one, so the last one there, like this.

And now what I want to do then, is grab my pair of scissors and leave an extra long tail, for yourself, and I want you, to take this loop, that you have on the hook, and just pull it through like this.

Okay, so now we have to turn the sock inside out, okay to finish this off.

And what I strongly recommend before you do it, because it's a pain to be able to find it, stick your hook in the middle of the sock first, and grab this string and pulling it, pull it through.

You'll love yourself if you do that, versus trying to find any other way.

All thumbs today, so just pulling it through like this.

So now that's on the inside, and now turn it inside out.

So we're just gonna turn everything inside out, at this point, make sure everything is looking good.

We can now officially pull out these stitch markers.

So let's pull those out.

Okay, so now what we have here, is we have the very front.

So I'm going to show you how to finish this off in the back.

So what I want you to do is, I want you to fold the sock so the heel is flat, on the back.

Okay, so then this is the front of the foot okay, coming down, and here.

So all I need you to do is grab your darning needle, and you wanna do this on the inside of the, of the project, because then it hides the join, and you won't see anything.

It's more of a finishing look.

It really is brilliant though.

Um, there you go.

So all I wanna just do is, that I wanna make sure that I'm going to fasten off.

So I'm just going to come in between the stitches, and I want to just sew in across the back of the heel.

It's like a whip stitch.

Now you don't want to be over generous with the string back here, because you, the child, if they're still if they're standing at this age, um will feel it in the back.

So you just wanna make sure it's kinda not bulking up too much together.

And then what, once you've gone all the way across once, you're now just going to do that finishing technique of just going across, one, coming back.

I'm just gonna come back same direction, and then once, one more time in the other direction.

Like so, and this will conclude off doing the sock.

And then you might want to sew in the, there's a front string on the toe that you might want to sew in as well, just to make it even.

If you're gonna go to all the effort, you might as well.

This here, so this is the starting string that we had when we did the heel, so we can safely cut that as well, because we've been burying it.

And now I'm just gonna simply just trim this down a little bit off camera, actually you know what, I'm going to leave it there and sew it in afterward.

And what I'm just gonna do now, is turn the sock inside, or sorry, turn the outside, right.

(Mikey giggles) Is that right? So we're gonna turn it in, and then basically this will be the conclusion of how to do one of these cute little crochet socks, just like this.

And it just needs to be a little bit shaped, and that's what you have fingers for, and you can see that you have a really cute new sock.

On both sides you have a perfect looking heel, just like, this you got the cuff, you got the front.

And now, the true test is then pulling up the original one, at which I just had.

Are they the same size? Look at that! The pattern works out to be the exact same size.

So that means that the pattern is definitely working.

So whether you have a boy or a girl, you can be successful.

And thank you so much, on behalf of Redheart.

Vetements x Reebok Sock Runner | Cheap Thrills | Tatered

[MUSIC] What's up family? It's your boy Nate a.


a TabaskoSweet andyou're watching Cheap Thrills.

You already know what it is? Guess you won't be needing me then.

[MUSIC] I'm just [BLEEP] with you family.

And, I don't know about you, family, but your boy has been straight dying oversome of these shoe drops lately.

Today, I'm going to be showing you howto make the most sus kicks of all, that new Vettements Reebok collab.

So you too can look sus but also lit.

Shoe drops lately have me wondering if allthese designers are having a contest to see who control us the hardest.

Now let's look at our first offender, Balenciaga, with the Triple S.

Now these MF's are pretty muchguaranteed to have fools asking, if they can copy your math homework.

These have made cameos on ASAP Ferg and more than one of the Migos, believe it or not.

Now personally, I think these bang, but these bad boys can costmore than $2, 500 on resale.

You can miss me with that, family.

[SOUND] Nah.

Next up, we've got the Easy Does It Rav 500s.

Kanye's take on the ugly shoe willhave your feet looking like the damn Michelin Man.

[SOUND] Very puffy, my guy.

Pro tip, never try to buy weed in these things.

Very narc wave.

Hey, you got some chronic I can buy? I swear I'm not a cop.

So far, only Yeezy and his wifeyKim K have been spotted in these.

Very rare.

I still think the Vetements Reebok SockRunner is the winner of the ugly shoe contest y'all.

Clocking in at around 900 bones, sneaker heads are shook by these new kicksthat are arguably more sock than sneak.

Vetements just debuted these bad boysat their pop up on Hong Kong, so they aren't as played out yet as the supersimilar Balenciaga Speed Runners.

Now, I don't know about you, family, but your boy did not investin BitCoin in 2012.

So I'm not trying todrop $900 on some kicks.

So what do you say, family? Let's cop these socks, without wasting all our guap.

So here's what you're gonna need.

Some red and black paint, some sneakerswith white soles in your size, hot glue gun with an extendoclip [SOUND] your trusty blade, a long piece of cardboard, a pair of grey socks.

All right, it's Liddy, and our first step is going to be to doa little surgery on your generic sneakers.

We're gonna use our blade toseparate the shoe from the sole.

As always, be very careful when you're getting cutty.

[SOUND] [MUSIC] And I'm just following the lineon the edge of the sole.

And if you're having troublefinding the right sole, you can always spot theseon the realist real ones.

The senior citizens ofthe Carrows in Glendale.

[MUSIC] Very clean.

And once you're done with your first shoe, repeat the process on the other one.

Make sure to clean up the edges, family.

Precision is key.

Now we can move these aside andget cracking on our socks, which are probably the mostcrucial part of the piece.

Now the real ones have twoblack stripes near the top.

They're spaced about an inch anda half apart, kind of like an old school tube sock.

We're going to color in thesestripes with our black paint.

Protip, cut a strip of cardboardto put inside your sock, so that you have a flat surface to paint on.

[MUSIC] Now we're gonna put in our firststripe about two fingers from the top.

[MUSIC] Now that we're done with our top stripe, we're gonna put in our bottomone about three fingers down.

[MUSIC] Now let's bring out our heater to go speedmode on this and get it dry already.

[MUSIC] All right, now that that'stechnically dry, flip it over and repeat the stripes on the back.

Make sure you hit the sides too, sothat your stripes go all the way around.

[MUSIC] Once you're done with the first sock, repeat on the other one.

Very clean.

Now, we have to draw on our Vetements logoon the front, in between the two stripes.

We're gonna use our red paint forthis part.

Lucky for us, their logo is hella easy, and remember all caps, family.

[MUSIC] And once the logo is locked in on bothsocks, hit it with your heater again.

[MUSIC] Whew, serious heat.

[SOUND] Tight.

Now the cool thing about these shoes isyou'll never put them on the wrong foot because they are labeled left andright on the toes.

Good looking out Vetements.

We're gonna put in that textnow with our black paint.

Now, you'll know your text is the rightdirection if it's right side up when you're putting your shoes on.

Flipped text? Dead giveaway.

[MUSIC] Very clean.

Now we're ready to attach oursock to our sneaker base.

Now for this step, we're going to takeour inserts from our cut up shoe and put them in the sock.

Now make sure you put the rightinsert in the right sock and the left one you get it.

[MUSIC] Now this should take about nine hours.

[SOUND] All right.

Now we're ready to start gluingour socks into our soles.

For this step, we're gonna usea [BLEEP] load of hot glue, so it's best to apply it in sections.

Now I'm gonna start by fillingin the heel with hot glue.

Glop it up, family.

Now you're gonna need a ton of glue, so go full dummy on this.

[MUSIC] Now you wanna let this completelydry before moving on to our arch.

So while you're waiting forthat, hit the other one.

[MUSIC] Make sure you have someextra clips on standby.

[SOUND] [MUSIC] Tight, now that our heel's dry wecan hit the middle part, our arch.

[MUSIC] Now once again, while we wait forthat to dry, repeat on the other shoe.

[MUSIC] Raindrop shoe sock.

Tabasko hitting it with the glue Glock.

[SOUND] [MUSIC] All right last clip family, kill shot.

[MUSIC] And there you have it, the legendary Vetement Reebok Sock Runner.

These are pretty ideal for laundry day because you don'teven need a pair of clean socks.

This one's forall you foot freaks out there.

Do not screenshot or you'll get blocked.

[BLEEP] off Wiki feets.

[MUSIC] Hella lightweight andfuturistic as [BEEP].

I'm 37 teen [BEEP] family.

Let's take these bad boys out fora test drive.

[MUSIC] All right, these things have gotyour boy feeling very athletic.

I am about to clock some serious speeds, family.

You timing me? All right, try to keep up.

[MUSIC] Speed, agility, endurance, precision.

[MUSIC] Damn, these things got your boyfeeling like he's saying bull.

Sports gang.

Anyway, this has been Sweet on the Street, over and out.

Back to my room.

So, I think that went as expected, go ahead and tell me in the comments what you thinkthe ugliest sneaker of the year was.

And make sure to @ someone who iscrazy enough to wear these Johns.

As always, stay boosted, Cheap Thrills fan.

Suppose you were gonna go to the give away section at Bob and Brad, We're always giving something away.

Giving away a beauty this week.

– Oh yes.

– Thermotex Infrared Heating Pad, this thing is fantastic.

This gives you deep heat, regular heat pad goesjust, few millimeters.

– Skin deep.

– This goes 10 times more, 10 times more deeper so.

– Yeah 2.

63 inches according to studies, it's a wonderful device.

– Yep, you can find it on Facebook too, it will be pinned at the top of the page.

Go to Twitter or Instagram if you want a short version of our program.

– There you go.

– All right, hunchback.

We're talking about, you know, when people start to get that little, almost nodule or nob at the top, right at the base of their neck.

And what happens is it just simply– From poor posture over time, that bump starts to, youknow, the spinous process starts to get a little more prominent.

– Sure.

– And it sticks out further and further.

– And you know some people called it the Dowager's hump.

Which we get a lot of comments on what the Dowager's hump really is.

– Yeah, I think that Dowager's hump is really down here.

And there's one hump up here, there's a lot of humps.

– This is gonna help all of them.

– It is, to correct thisall, we're gonna do is we're gonna provide a counterforce the other direction, give it a stretch.

These bones are held together by tough ligaments, once they get tightened down it'sdifficult to stretch them out just manually like this.

You need a counterforce.

– Right.

– So, we got a sock here, we're gonna have you lay on it.

It's gonna give you that counterforce, and hopefully, over time, I'm not gonna, this isn'tgonna happen in one week even.

– Right.

– Hopefully over theperiod of a month or two, you'll start to notice that your posture's improving and the humpis starting to disappear.

– Right.

So, again, the sock, actually, there's more that one sock there, Bob.

– That is actually three socks.

– Three pair or three sock? – Three pair.

– Three– – So what I'm gonna do is, I'm gonna take it apart at the end.

– Oh, okay.

– So that you can see.

'Cause I've got this allshaped real nice, Brad.

– Yeah it is.

– So what's nice about this, a lot of people try to use a tennis ball and we've even recommended it.

Like a towel over a tennis ball – Sure.

– This, you can make it any size you want you can make it any firmness you want.

Some of you are not gonnabe able to tolerate much.

– Right.

– You know, Brad and I can a fair amount, because we have decent posture.

Wouldn't you say? – And we work with these.

– Right.

– I mean with other ones.

We've worked with a tennis ball, we got the back padwhich is another story.

But this is definitelygonna be more comfortable for a lot of people.

– Right.

So, what you're gonna do just, what you do a couple oftimes a day if you can.

– Right.

– And this is a easy thing to do, so Brad why don't you, oh you're gonna do it to me? – Yeah, yeah.

– You're gonna show mewhere you're gonna place it.

– Right, so you're actually gonna do this laying on a carpeted floor, you could use a hardfloor, if you wanted to but first you're gonna put it right in the center, right there at the base of the neck, upper part of the back.

And you're gonna lay there and then we'll show you on the floor.

– [Bob] Yeah.

– And then we're gonna go off to the side between the spine and the scapula or the shoulder blade, on this side, we can do it on this side, and it's gonna depend on your back individually and how youfeel it should be there.

– You can go up a littlehigher, a little lower.

– Right.

– You know you justreally need to lie down for like 30 seconds on each section.

You know, it doesn't take that long.

– Is it lie or lay? – You lie down.

– That's right, I was just testing him.

– I'm glad you did.

Why don't you go ahead? So you can, listen, you cango four spots if you want, and each spot, 30 seconds.

That just takes a couple minutes.

You do it twice a day, forless than five minutes a day, you can start correcting your posture.

And let me tell you, with most people, this is, if you wanna work onone area to correct posture, that's it.

You know, if you correct that, Brad, everything else starts to straighten out.

– Sure, Bob, it's a big one.

– Why don't you go on and lay down, Brad? – Okay, so I've got the sock this way.

You could put it this way as far as– – [Bob] Sure.

– It's gonna depend on how it feels.

Like right now, I can tell I need to move it down a little bit, it's too high, it's upin my neck a little bit.

Yeah right in the center, can you give me that towel roll, Bob? – [Bob] Sure.

– You may need this– – [Bob] For your head.

– You have a pillow or towel, so you can rest your head and relax and you don't tightenup your neck muscles.

And there we go.

– [Bob] See now look what he's doing, when he's in this position.

He's bringing his arms out so he's getting a little more of a stretch and he's stopping those armsfrom internally rotating now they are externally rotating.

And while he's in this position, he's gonna take some nice deep breaths, you know, that's gonnahelp work the spine too and work the rib cage.

And he can also do some chin tucks, while he's in this position.

– Sure so– And actually, if you'regonna do chin tucks, a towel is a little better than a pillow.

– Right.

– A firm pillow.

– [Bob] So you see again, he's tucking his chin in and that's a great thingto do along with this.

So really easy stretch to do.

This is something that anybody can do and you can go and adjust it.

So now he's gonna go for a different spot.

– I'm going up or down a little bit, on the left, between the shoulder blade and the back.

You know this, you're gonna have to make sure the sock roll is pretty firm for a lot of people.

Because if it's too soft, you'll squish into it.

But Bob, you're gonnatalk about that at the end of the video.

– [Bob] Right, right but I mean where is this, with you Brad? I mean is this too firm for you? – No, it's just about right.

– [Bob] Yeah I thought so, it was just about right for me.

But, again, I don't thinkwe're typical, Brad.

I think because we work with this so much.

– Well of course we're not typical we got issues, Bob.

– [Bob] So the cameraman andmy cast will laugh about that.

Right Brad, I wanna showalso, so do you mind? – Oh yeah.

– I'm gonna show that I actually, this is an on-going joke with my family and even Brad.

I use it in my car also.

I use a sock like this.

Because I'm tall, when I'm driving, it's really easy for me to go like this.

– Well that car you had 15 years ago, what was it? A little Toyota Corollaor something like that.

– That actually had a deep seat.

– Yeah I know, but it still is amazing– – Maybe you mean the Subaru.

– Yeah the Subaru, could you just imagine.

– So I actually keep a towel-0 Now this isn't gonna work here because I don't haveanything to lean up against.

– Oh, because of this.

– But I lean up rightagainst the sock right here and I can do chin tuckswhile I'm in the car.

It's almost like a treatment everyday.

And it really works on my posture.

It's to the point nowwhere I can't be in the car without something.

Like I'll be in someone else's car and I'll pull my gloves out or– – Right.

– A pop can or– – Right, I remember thefirst time I saw you do that, just sticking something back there.

Yeah, I don't know ifit was your towel roll or you just some mushed upglove but I remember that.

– So anyways, so I justtook two socks here, and rolled them up like that.

– Yeah, you must do laundry a lot, you did a nice job – Yeah, these are clean.

There's another one.

– Yeah different people rolltheir socks differently, this is old style.

– Yeah so I put them together like that.

– Yeah.

– I put them two together like that, then I just took a sock like this, then went over the top like this, and then I opened up one, you know, went overboth of them, like this.

– [Brad] So that one sock is gonna get a little stretch, stretchy.

– Yeah and then once I gotit on, I just shaped it.

– Yeah, yeah, customize it.

– You'll figure it out.

– If you haven't done any socks before, you might have to ask someone.

– Right, so get your socks.

Look at that, I hit the camera.

– Wow.

– I wonder if you can slow it down, slow my motion on that.

All right, we can fix just about anything.

– Except for a broken heart.

– There you go.

– But we're working on it.


تعليم الكروشيه: سليبر شراب – Learn how to Crochet: Slippers Socks

Welcome today we will crochet a slipper sock as we can see this is how it looks the slipper will suit size thirty eight so lets see how we will crochet it but before er begin we'd like to remind you, to get all of our new videos if you haven't yet subscribed to our channelyou can click the subscribe button now and if you are already subscribed make sureto activate notifications by clicking the bell we will use two threads each one will be a different type this one is Alize Sekerim Bebe and the other will be SNG they both has same thickness but different colors we can choose either the two threads are sametype or two different types as we did here but it's important that the two threadsare the same thickness and we will use a size 4 hook and we can also use size 4.

5 the amount of yarn we will be using of eachcolor will be less than the quarter of the roll which is less than 25 grams we will start off with the starting chain we will start with three chain stitches then we make a ring by joining the veryfirst stitch with the last stitch and as we see we will make just three chain stitches we will crochet the slipper startingfrom toes to the heel so we will start from bottom to top we started with three chain stitches becausewe want the beginning part to be tight we don't want the ring at the beginning to be wide which will cause the slipper to be wide at toes part so as we saw we started with three chain stitches and we made a ring by closing the very first stitchwith the last stitch using a slip stitch (Sl) now we're going to make three chain stitches and start making the first round with double crochet stitches (DC) as we see we insert the hook into the ringwe made at the starting chain and the first stitch we makeis double crochet stitch (DC) insert the hook again into the ring and make the second double crochet stitch (DC) continue the same way and make14 double crochet stitches (DC) we do all of them the same way, we insert the hookinto the ring we made at the starting chain the double crochet stitches (DC) should be rolled onthe chain stitches, not inside the chain stitch itself as we said the first round will be14 double crochet stitches (DC) we make them all the same way now we completed 14 double crochet stitches (DC) as we see all of them are done throughthe ring we made at the starting chain at chain number 3, we will closethe round with a slip stitch (Sl) and that's how the first round looks we will start the second round we will start off with three chain stitches starting from the second round we will be makingfront post double crochet stitches (FP DC) the part of the slipper which will be on the leg will be done with front post double crochet stitches (FP DC) in the first stitch we will start making the firstfront post double crochet stitch (FP DC) we will make two front post doublecrochet stitches (FP DC) as we see we insert the hook in the stitch from behind and we make the front post doublecrochet stitch (FP DC) like that at the first stitch we made two front post doublecrochet stitches (FP DC) turning around it the next stitch we will make only one front postdouble crochet stitch (FP DC) turning around it at the next stitch we can see how the frontpost double crochet stitch (FP DC) is done we insert the hook in the stitchfrom behind and pull the yarn and continue making the front postdouble crochet stitch (FP DC) but in this stitch we will turn around it and make another front postdouble crochet stitch (FP DC) so as we saw, starting from the second round we started making front postdouble crochet stitches (FP DC) at the first stitch we made two front post doublecrochet stitches (FP DC) turning around it the next stitch we made only one frontpost double crochet stitch (FP DC) in the next stitch we made two front post doublecrochet stitches (FP DC) turning around it together at the next we will make only one frontpost double crochet stitch (FP DC) and we will continue on the same sequence making two front post double crochetstitches (FP DC) turning around one stitch and at the next stitch we are making only onefront post double crochet stitch (FP DC) the next one will have two as we can see here we made the firstfront post double crochet stitch (FP DC) we then we go back to the same stitch and makea front post double crochet stitch (FP DC) and we will continue on with samesequence to the end of the round now the second round is completed at chain number 3, we will closethe round with a slip stitch (Sl) as we saw, in the second round we started makingfront post double crochet stitches (FP DC) and starting from the first stitch we made our wayusing the same sequence for the whole round making two front post double crochet stitches (FP DC) turning around the first stitch we made them both at the same stitch at the next stitch we made only one frontpost double crochet stitch (FP DC) the next stitch we made two front post doublecrochet stitches (FP DC) turning around it and at the next stitch we made only one stitchand used same sequence for the rest of the round two front post double crochet stitches (FP DC) thenone front post double crochet stitch (FP DC) and then two stitches and then one stitch and keepthis sequence until the end of the round we will start round number three we will make the whole round with frontpost double crochet stitches (FP DC) they will be single stitches so at every stitch we will be making only onefront post double crochet stitch (FP DC) and if you needed explanation for how front post doublecrochet stitch (FP DC) or any other stitch used in this video you can check our crochet foundations videos on ourchannel and watch the specific video we made for every stitch we are now working in the third round making one front post double crochetstitch (FP DC) in every stitch so there is no increasing in the third round all stitches are single at every stitch we make only one frontpost double crochet stitch (FP DC) now the third round is completed as we saw all stitches in the third round were front post double crochet stitches (FP DC), all were single stitches then we will continue all rows in this part of the slipper working with front post double crochet stitch (FP DC) only in the first round we used double crochet stitches (DC) so it can be a foundation for the rest of rows and as we saw, the second round isthe one that gave us the expansion at that round the sequence was two front postdouble crochet stitches (FP DC) together and the next stitch had one front post double crochet stitch (FP DC) and then two stitches and then one and we followed this sequence for the whole round we completed round number three with singlestitches without any increasing we are going to make just one step to give ussome width, and it depends on foot size because as we see we are now crocheting the toes partand then we will be working on the widest part of the foot so if we wanted to give this part more widthdepending on the desired foot size we will repeat the same steps in fourth and fifth rounds we will increase only one stitchin fourth and fifth rounds but if we'd like to increase more thenwe make two stitches in every round or we can increase in the fourth, fifth and sixth rounds and the seventh also.

so the increasing can be done byadding one stitch in each round, not just fourth and fifth rounds so we will start round number fourand we will increase one stitch in it at the first stitch we will make two front postdouble crochet stitches (FP DC) together we will continue making the wholefourth round with single stitches so it's only the first stitch that we increased a stitch in it because we are increasingthe size with only two stitches and of course if we wanted more width or if the width is fine and we don't want to add morewidth so it's our choice to make it depending on the foot size but as we saw here we increasedone stitch in this round and we will also increase one stitch in the next round because we don't want a huge increase, we just need toadd little more width to give more comfort to this part because the desired width of the slipperwas already made in the second round after that there will be a slight widthincreasing that gives us some comfort we'll then continue the the fourth round, we started itwith two front post double crochet stitches (FP DC) together and the rest of the round will be with single stitches now round number four is completed and as we saw, there was no increasingin round number three all stitches were single but at the beginning of round numberfour we made only one increasing stitch and continued the rest of the round with single stitches we will start making round number five and here we will also make two front post double crochet stitches (FP DC) in the first stitch they both will be turning around the same stitch and we will continue the wholeround with single stitches as we said this is the width wewill be doing in this slipper but if we want to increase the width we canmake another round with two stitches and check to see if the width is fine and if we needed more width we can increaseone more stitch in the next round or we can increase two stitches in the fourth and fifth rounds instead of one stitch for each round so in each round we will make two front post doublecrochet stitches (FP DC) together turning around the same stitch two front post double crochet stitches (FP DC) and as we see here, we continue the restof the round with single stitches and at every stitch we make only one frontpost double crochet stitch (FP DC) we said we will stop the increasingat round number five we will start round number six and starting from round number six and as we said, the increasing willbe at the fourth and fifth rounds all the next rounds we will make themthe same way using only single stitches there will be no increasing at all unlesswe wanted to add more width and after that, we will make allrounds with single stitches working all of them the same way, all stitchesare front post double crochet stitches (FP DC) and at each stitch we make frontpost double crochet stitch (FP DC) and this part will be 18 rows this part will start from toes to the heel so this part will be 18 rows and as we said this is the part where we can makesome changes if we wanted to change the size so here we will make 18 rows which will suit size 38 but if we wanted to change the size and make it bigger or smaller size 38 means that the whole footlength is 24.

5 centimeters the part from toes to the beginning of the legis approximately 17.

5 centimeters and those will be the 18 rows will be doing but if we wanted to change the sizeto a bigger or smaller size because the slipper can be made for men or children so depending on foot length and sizes the part from toes to the beginningof the leg is the part we can change we will increase or decrease in rows numberdepending on the length of the foot and since our size here is 38 wewill make 18 rounds for this part as we said, starting from round number six we stopped increasing and started making single stitches and made only one front post doublecrochet stitch (FP DC) at every stitch and now we are working in round numbersix so we will continue the same way we are making the rounds untilwe reach round number 18 and now we completed this part startingfrom toes to the beginning of the leg and as we said this part was 18 round all of them made with front postdouble crochet stitches (FP DC) now we will start the heel part the heel part will be almost half a roundor two thirds of this round so we will not complete the front partas at this point there will be the leg but we will make this bottom part becausethis is the part that will cover the heel now we will put a pin.

we cut off the yarn so wecan connect it to the part we will start with because as we said it will not be full rounds now we go back the startingchains and count nine stitches one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine and at stitch number nine we will connectthe yarn and make three chain stitches because we will start working with frontpost double crochet stitches (FP DC) but we also need to locate the second half, so at the starting stitches we will count nine stitches in the second half one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine and put the pin and now we will work starting from this spot wherewe connected the yarn until we reach the pin then we stop and start making the next row this way so at this part we will make rows but we will do nothing in this part here we will just work in this part, starting from this spot where we connected the yarn until we reach the pin and this is the part which will coverthe heels and both sides of the foot we can also change the number of the nine stitches onboth sides depending on how much width we need for this part if we wanted to have more or less width soit covers more or less space of the front we can then change the number of the nine stitches, but anyways we won't make a big change it might be one or twos stitches max but it can't be much more or much less than that because as we see the space left here is not much it's almost suitable to give us the space we need as wewon't be covering this part of the slipper because it's the leg part we will continue working in this part and as we said we will be doing frontpost double crochet stitches(FP DC) so at the first stitch we will make frontpost double crochet stitch (FP DC) and we will continue making front postdouble crochet stitches (FP DC) of course all stitches will be single stitches we will continue until we reach the pin now we have reached the stitch wherewe put the pin and we will stop here as we see here this is the row that wewill be making the rest of rows on it we will start the new row we will start the new row with three chain stitches and to maintain the shape of the frontpost double crochet stitches (FP DC) we are now working in rows so when we reach the pin as we did now we goour way back to the spot where we started and we will be making back postdouble crochet stitches (BP DC) as we can see here the front post double crochet stitches (FP DC) are on the back side so we will make back post doublecrochet stitches (BP DC) we turn around the stitch from behind we're doing this to maintain the shape of the frontpost double crochet stitches (FP DC) so now we are doing the stitches this way to maintain the shape of the front post doublecrochet stitches (FP DC) at the slipper front but because we are making the row from the opposite direction and we are facing the backside so we are making back post doublecrochet stitches (BP DC) you can also check our crochetfoundations videos on our channel to learn how to crochet back postdouble crochet stitch (BP DC) it's explained in detail if you'dlike to see how it's done as we can see the front of the stitch is very clearin the front post double crochet stitches (FP DC) so we turn around the stitch from behind the only difference here is thatthe stitch is facing the backside and not facing us as we did in frontpost double crochet stitches (FP DC) the front post double crochet stitches (FP DC)in this part was fronting us but as we see here this part isprominent but on the backside as we can see here we turnaround this stitch from behind but since it's on the backside so we make back post double crochet stitches (BP DC) again, we are working this way to maintain the shape of the front post double crochet stitches (FP DC) at the slipper front as we see here the back post double crochet stitches (BP DC) are back post double crochet stitches (BP DC) at the slipper front so we will make this part depending on the direction when we are facing the front we will makefront post double crochet stitches (FP DC) and when we are facing the backsideas we are doing in this row here we will make back post doublecrochet stitches (BP DC) as we said this is to maintain the shape of the front post double crochet stitches (FP DC) at the slipper front now we completed the second round now we will switch the direction and we will be facing the front so we will makefront post double crochet stitches (FP DC) we will continue making our rows this way now we started the third row this part will be nine rows and it's also the part we canchange to get different size we explained how to change size in the first part changing the size or number of rounds dependingon foot size from toes to the beginning of the leg also from this part to the end of the heel we can control the number of rows dependingon the length or size of the foot as we explained we calculate the whole foot length then we measure the front part lengthfrom toes to the beginning of the leg and then we calculate the lengthstarting from this part here and as we said changing the number of rows increasing or decreasing will change the size accordingly so we will make nine rows in this part and this will be suitable for size 38 as we specified where these rows started and ended we continue making the rest of the rowswith the same size we specified and we will also consider changing the rows directions in one row when we are facingthe slipper front as we see here we are making front post doublecrochet stitches (FP DC) and when we flip it and face the backside of the slipper we will make back post double crochet stitches (BP DC) so we will continue making the restof the nine rows in the heel part now we completed the heel part makingall rows the way we explained this was the width of the rows asit wasn't fully completed rounds and this the part we left on the frontbecause this is where the leg will be and we made nine rows as we see now we need to close thispart here to form the slipper's heel so we will flip it on its backand fold it to two equal halves then we start connecting withthe stitch on the other side we will insert the hook in each of the opposite stitches we folded these rounds into two equal halves as we see here we folded it on its back so wecan make the stitches from the backside so we folded it into two exact equal halves and we will pull the yarn througheach two opposite stitches and connect them with a slip stitch (Sl) insert the hook into the next two stitches and pull the yarn through each of themand connect them with a slip stitch (Sl) insert the hook into the next two stitches and pull the yarn through each of themand connect them with a slip stitch (Sl) continue connecting stitches the same way connect every two oppositestitches with a slip stitch (Sl) last two stitches and we close this part now as we can see here the foot part is completed it has the foot shape exactly and the heel part is also finished now we will make the upper part of the slipperthat will cover a little of the leg this part here will cover the foot we will start making some rounds to cover the foot to make this part we will choose oneof the two colors we used here but still we are going to use two threads togetherto maintain the same thickness of the slipper we will choose the grey color as we said we will use two threads togetherto maintain the same stitches thickness at the connecting part here at the endof the heel we will connect the yarn and we will make three chain stitches we will start the first row with double crochetstitches (DC) to be the foundation for this part we need this part to have the proper width we don't want to add more width to it so if at every stitch on both sides we madethe stitches as these ones shown here each stitch is split to two stitches and there also the parts where there willbe starting chains for the previous rows if we followed the same sequence by makingsame number of stitches in this part this will result in more unwanted stitches and we don't need that as it will cause more width we need this part to be a little bit tight on the leg so if during working we noticedthat we have some extra stitches because as we said the sides don't have apparent stitches that we can change or modify so we will do our best not to makea large number of stitches and as we said that's to make thispart a little bit tight on the leg and there won't be extra width in it so what we will be doing hereat the beginning of every round we will be making one stitch atthe beginning of every round especially in both sides here these are the parts where there will it will bea little bit difficult to adjust the stitches but the stitches at the front part here are very clear because it has stitches lengthwise as wecan see so we will work on all stitches but here at the side part we will makeonly one stitch for each row but if we wanted to add more width we canincrease one or tow more stitches in each side as we can see we are makingonly one stitch for each row so we can make two stitches at this row one stitch at the connection part here and the otherone goes through this gap here this way we will be adding one morestitch to the sequence we mentioned lets go back and make only one stitch at this row here and another one at the second row here.

and we can also make another one here we are still working in one side and we are still following the samesequence we mentioned before we made one stitch for each row, butwe added two more stitches here so the width won't be so tight and of course we can change the widthdepending on the size of the leg as we need this part to fit the exact foot size then we will start working on the front part and the stitches here are clear as we see so at this part it'll be easier for us to makea double crochet stitch (DC) in each stitch and we see here in this part we madeit with double crochet stitches (DC) because it will be the foundation for the stitcheswe will be making in the next rows now we completed the front part we will start working on the other side and as we said we will make the number ofstitches to be the same as number of rows but we can add two more stitchesas we did in the other side so the row won't be so tight in general we will adjust the widthof this part depending on leg size we will close the round at these stitches here with a slip stitch (Sl) and that was the first round in thispart which will be on the leg we explained how it's done without adding extra width by making only one stitch for each row, so the numberof stitches are the same as number of rows in heel part but we added two more stitches for both sides but the front part here had clear stitches so we made only one double crochetstitch (DC) at each stitch and as we said we can change the width of thispart depending on the size of this part of the leg and regarding the amount of yarnwe clarified at the beginning because we used more amount of the grey color so we will be using a little bit more thanthe quarter of the roll of the grey color but the other color we will consume almostquarter of the roll as we mentioned we will start making the second row.

the grey part here will be three rows only we made the first row with doublecrochet stitches (DC) and we will show you how to make the other two rows and this will be the height of this part and if we'd like to add more height we can increasethe number of rows to the desired height but now we will make two rows only the first stitch we will make is a frontpost double crochet stitch (FP DC) the next stitch will be a double crochet stitch (DC) as we saw here we made the stitchthrough this stitch not around it then we will make front post double crochetstitch (FP DC) from behind this stitch the next stitch will be a normal stitch insert the hook into the stitch and makea double crochet stitch (DC) the next stitch will be a front postdouble crochet stitch (FP DC) the next one will be a double crochet stitch (DC) and this is the sequence we will followfor this row and the next row this part will be three rows as we mentioned at the first row set the size and also wemade it with double crochet stitches (DC) so it was the foundation for the next rows we will make second and third rows the same way one front post double crochet stitch (FP DC) and the next stitch is a double crochet stitch (DC)we go through the stitch normally the next one will be a front postdouble crochet stitch (FP DC) and the next one is double crochet stitch (DC) we will continue this round and the nextone the same way a front post double crochet stitch (FP DC)and then a double crochet stitch (DC) then a front post double crochet stitch (FP DC)and then a double crochet stitch (DC) we will continue this roundand the next one the same way now we completed this part ofthe slipper which will be on the leg and we explained the last two rows we made themwith one front post double crochet stitch (FP DC) and then a double crochet stitch (DC) then a front stitch (FP DC) anda double crochet stitch (DC) we also explained that this part was three rows the first row we made it withdouble crochet stitches (DC) we also said that this is the row where we will setthe width depending the size of this part of the leg so it must be the proper width to fit the leg size and we explained how to make it the suitablesize without adding more stitches and this was the last step in making the slipper using the same way and same numberof stitches we will make the second one the second one is completedand now we have a pair of slipper if you liked this video don't forget to like and share and if you have any question write it in the comments subscribe now if you want to get all our new videos Than you.

Yes, You Should Wear EVA Birkenstocks with Socks

– I'm Justin Krajeski andtoday, we're gonna take a walk in the EVA Birkenstocks, where as we lovingly call them here at Wirecutter, the Birkencrocs.

(jazz music) You may have seen EVA Birkenstocksin your neighbor's feet or showing up in your Instagramfeed, they're everywhere.

A quick PSA, this is non-adnor it's sponsored or paid for.

Everything that we say and do here is because we love the thingand the EVA Birkenstocks are no different.

Birkenstock introducedtheir EVA models in 2015 and they now make up as much as 15% of the entire Birkenstock business.

But what the (bleep) are they? EVA stands for ethylene-vinyl acetate, a super lightweight material that's somewhere betweena thong and a rubber.

The material is flexible, itoffers cushion and comfort, and it's also waterproofand machine washable.

Don't put them in the dryer though.

The EVAs will do a lot for your love but they won't do that.

I've had mine for years and I can vouch for their dependabilityespecially the all-black pair that come with me whenever I go.

And they only cost about 40 bucks, a fraction of what you payfor classic leather Birks.

But there's something I wannatell you about EVA Birks and it may shock you.

Even when the temperature hitsbelow 60 degrees Fahrenheit, you can throw socks under your feet, possibly a pair of Darn Tough socks.

Slip your feet into a pair of EVAs and take a walk around town.

We know this ulterior move can be seen as polarizing the sun.

So to prove that your EVA Birkenstocks look great on your feet, nomatter what kind of outfit you're wearing and withsocks, check out my colleagues in different outfits while wearing EVAs.

– I will say Eva, it sounds cooler.

Holla at me, WALL-E.

But yeah, I originally had the suede pair Birkenstock Bostons, andI used to like to cook in them 'cause I'm a savage.

And the oil from the platanoswill just fly everywhere and land on the suede andit was just miserable, and I would walk around withthose little suede patches.

This was like a great upgrade because I like to just walkaround, living the summer, be really leisurely walk the dog.

This is bodega approved.

If you wanna step up from Adidas slides, the young kids like to walkin, little more Calleja.

First outfit, I haveAnonymous Ism Fair Isle socks.

These are kind of expensivebut the best socks I've ever bought in my life.

EVA Birkenstocks, this issome random brand from France.

Little colorful sweater from Amsterdam which I went to recently.

The little watch, the ring detail.

The next outfit is a greenkind of pleated pants, those kind of loose fitting, roll them up next to the calf.

And then I had this pullover zip up turtle neck which has a little accent ofblue on the shoulder pads, a little '90s, '80s, CallMe by Your Name feel, shout out to Timothee Chalamet.

And it's like a all-greenlittle ensemble to go with the little black EVA.

Especially this color, you can kinda just do whatever you want.

It's just a simple shoe.

I mean, simplicity is like in right now.

We've been dealing withthose huge Fila Disruptors.

Don't wear those.

Right now, you kinda justwanna be a little comfortable, feel a little rich.

Get your little shells, get your little toe shell and get your little sock showing.

Something make you feel good.

Mix and match, people.

Have fun with clothes.

– Another thing you wannaremember is jelly shoes but jelly shoes used tobe so cute but they hurt so badly after a while.

These shoes were so comfortable.

I picked the black ones.

I have a lot of different color options but I wear them all summerwith anything and everything and now I'm even mixing them obviously into the fall and winter with socks.

You can dress them up oryou can dress them down.

So I have my EVAs with my colorful socks, my Reformation jeans, ahand-me-down turtleneck and an H&M sweater, that says Frenchy because I love my two friends bulldogs.

You can wear just pretty much anywhere.

Today, I have it for acasual day in the office.

I also brought a more fall inspired dress.

So it's a long black dresswith a little like cap sleeve that has this littlefloral embellishment on it and I brought some blackpants to pair with the EVAs.

The world can be exhaustingso having anything to make it a little biteasier and more comfortable is really, really nice.

– As you can see, the EVABirkenstocks are sheek and accommodating no matterwhat is that you're wearing.

The EVA Birks werebuilt to last to a range of different outfits, environments and personalities.

Check your temperatureapp, bundle up if necessary and walk to the grocery store in socks.

That's what I always say.

(playful music) Is this supposed to be funny? Like, www.



(laughs) You know? – I know.

– Do you?.

DC Socks advent calendars 2019: Day 24

Merry Christmas Eve! Yes it's the lastday of the socks calendars and I've gotta say I am actually kind of relieved, Ididn't really enjoy these calendars.

The Ooshies one last year was so muchbetter, I don't know.

The crappy quality of the socks and the.



Hmm some ofthem were alright, but mostly they were just really cruddy.

But it's the last day.



there goes my light, doesn't last very long.

There goes my light, it's the last day now.

*Coughs* Excuse me, it's Christmas Eve so let's get to the last pair of socks.

It is time for the last pair of socks and the last one of the girl calendar.

So let's get to it, I'm not gonna stab it today I'm just gonna rip.

Gonna rip.



what is it? Oh my God! Yes! For the last day it is Wonder Woman socks! That is just the best Christmas Eve present I could ask for, well no not the best maybe, perhaps not.

Just get rid of that, but it's pretty good forChristmas Eve.

That was completely random I had no idea that was gonna happen.

Wonder Woman socks, excellent! Yay my favourite! Well I gotta try themon, and then we'll count up how many pairs of socks no well obviously there's 24, we'll countup how many different heroes there were and how many were the most andhow many were the least Alright, Wonder Woman socks! Let's put them on.

Here we go the Wonder Woman socks, yes.

They actually.



they don't feel too bad.

And they, obviously the logo getsstretched but, these are pretty nice, yeah.

I would actually wear these.

I mean.



the uh, seams coming off a bit, coming out of it there so that's not, that's not great but.



these actually are not too bad.




well that's a good way to end it yes, WonderWoman socks.




as you can see I've laid out all the socks I got here, so what wasthe one that we thought the most of? I'll just get the Wonder Woman socks with the other Wonder Woman socks, and then we'll see who was the most and who was the least, and we'llsee what my favourites were.

Just gimme a sec, right.

Coming in at joint fourthwith four pairs of socks each is.



Batman with four, could be Batgirlas well it's just Bat logo.

Superman or Su.


and Supergirl, Super logo with four, fourpairs.

And The Flash with four.



oh hang on yes it is four.

These ones got lost, fourpairs.

Yes I, I really honestly thought there were more Flash, but it's probably justbecause there was that day where I had three in a row, those days that I hadthree in a row.

So yes four each for Batman Superman and The Flash.

Then we got withtwo pairs, Aquaman.

Another with two pairs, Green Lantern.

Two for The Joker.

Only two for Wonder Woman in the whole of the two.

You know she is one of the main, you'dthink she'd have four pairs just as, as long as as well as Superman and Batman but no, a lowly two pairs for Wonder Woman.

That is a shame, I really thought there was gonna be more Wonder Woman, especially in the girl box.

And, with one pair each we've got Harley Quinn, The Riddler, Catwoman and.



Just one pair for Cyborg.

I, I was sure I had more of Cyborg but no I don't, so.



What were my favourites? I think.



it is actually the Catwoman.

Because, this is just so unexpected you don't see Catwoman a lot and she's not actually a hero, she's more of a villain and these were like the superhero socks.

But we did have Joker and the Riddler as well.

but yeah, the Batgirl socks justcuz of the graphic on it, it's quite cute.

Yeah so yay, number one for Batgirl.

Myleast favourite? I think it's gotta be these Joker socks because.



just looking at them it just looks like indis.



indecipherable squiggles, it's not reallyuntil you look a bit closer that you can actually make out that It's saying Ha-Ha-Ha.

So those are my least favourite.

But Batgirl, sorry, but Catwoman wins thesock challenge because she is the best one.




this has been 24 days ofsuperhero socks.

A lot of some, but not so many of others.

But actually a prettygood selection of socks.

It's just a shame that the quality letthem down, because they are quite cheap and.



they don't feel that great to wear.

So I don't know what I'm gonna with them now.

Obviously I'll keep the Wonder Womansocks for my collection, the others I don't know maybe I'll give them to charity, maybe I'll put them on eBay, I don't know make some money.

I doubt I'll get much, Ithink I'll just put them in at a fiver for the lot.



they're not great quality.

I don't know, I think I want to keep the Catwoman ones though.

Hmm, yeah well that's it.

Have a Merry Christmas everyone And I'll see you.



soon, bye!.

The Rules On Matching Color & Pattern When It Comes To Socks – How To Match Men's Socks

The Rules On Matching Color & Pattern WhenIt Comes To Socks – How To Match Men's Socks Hi! I'm Antonio Centeno, the founder of Real MenReal Style.

Today, we're going to be talking about men'ssocks, the rules on color and pattern.

If you haven't already, please subscribe toour YouTube channel.

By doing that, these videos will come rightto you.

In addition, if you like this video, if youfind it useful, I would appreciate it if you would like it down below.

And while you're down there, grab our free47-page e-book coming right to you.

You can read through this and learn the basicsof men's style.

Finally, if you have something to add, ifyou want to tell me something, if you don't like my socks, please go ahead and commentright down there below and I will make sure to try to answer that comment.

Without further ado, here's the question thatcame in.

This came in from George Cook.

He's actually a good friend of mine and heruns the website The Style Insiders and a very interesting gentleman.

He had a good question about socks.


Centeno, I have a question or a topicfor you.

While going through your videos, I don't recallyou covering men's dress socks and how they go with a suit or a more formal wear.

How does color play a factor? What's your perspective on this?” Okay.

Let me go ahead and answer that for George, so I'm going to break it down into three rules.

You can say there's more, you can say there'sless.

I'm just going to say there's three rightnow.


The basic one that you'll hear most of thetime is that your socks should match your trousers.

Some people will say they should actuallymatch your shoes.

At the end of the day, what you're lookingfor is a streamlined transition from the legs to the foot because what you don't want, youdon't want someone's eyes — when you're an amateur, when you're just starting off inmen's style, you don't want people's eyes getting stuck on your socks.

It's just at this point not where you wantto be.

Now, I'm going to change this up a bit andI'm going to contradict this here in a minute, but that's what you want.

So whether or not you coordinate them withyour footwear, whether or not you coordinate with them through your trousers, you're probablygoing to be okay.


Now, some men are going to say it has to bewith your trousers because it's going to elongate the leg.

It's going to make you just look better.

At the end of the day, just wear dark trousersand you're going to be fine 99.

9% of the time, assuming that you're wearing a dark suit.

If you've got a dark navy blue suit on, noone's going to notice that you're wearing black socks, so you don't have to have navysocks to match that exactly, or if you're wearing a black suit and you've got navy socks.

And if you've got both of those, well, whynot just wear them together? But you get what I'm saying, dark socks, makesure they match the trousers.

If they match the shoes, it's okay assumingthat you've got dark colored shoes.

Now, if you're wearing some white box andyou're wearing a dark dress suit, you've got other problems and matching your socks isn'treally going to help or resolve that at all.


The other one is that you want to make surethat the socks are high enough.

So if you happen to be a guy that crossesone leg over the other, you do not want to show your ankles.

It's just something that is instantly a flashof color.

Unless you are as dark or the same color asyour suit, people are going to look at the leg.

Maybe on a woman and maybe back in the 18thCentury, showing a bit of ankle was kind of sexy.

In the year 2012, showing ankle as a man especiallywith our hairy ankles and all that stuff, it doesn’t look sexy, guys.

It actually looks like you don't know howto buy the right size socks, so make sure your socks are the right size.

Make sure they're dark and try to match themwith your trousers preferably, but if you match them with your shoes, no one is goingto care.

Okay, so let's go a little bit farther intothis and let's talk about having fun with socks.

So most of the socks we wear are like this.

These are from blacksocks.


This is a great company.

I don't get any money from them.

I just like what they're doing over there.

They actually have this thing called “sockscription”, so it's pretty cool and they sent me those socks, so I like to use them.

Good socks, black socks like that are goingto be fine for most men, but if you want to change things up, if you want to add a bitof spice and variety, socks are a place where a lot of men, they never think about it, butthey can add a bit of color.

Let's assume that you've got that dark suit, navy blue suit, dark black shoes, and you're not really a pocket square guy.

You're not really into pink ties or outlandishshirts with bright stripes.

Well, why not bring in a little bit of coloron the sock? Here's a little bit of color.

I picked these up in London.

Yes, George, I did just pull these off myfeet.

You can introduce a bit of color.

It's one of those little quirky things thatmost people aren't going to notice because your trousers are going — unless you're wearing– what's his name? I can't even remember the designer right now.

Somebody put a comment in there.

Tom, I can't remember whoever the designeris, but in any case — I can't believe I'm drawing a blank here.

In any case, he wears trousers and he putout the style.

I guess it was fashionable a couple of yearsago.

I don't follow fashion, so I don't alwaysstay up on this stuff, but basically they were showing a lot of sock or lack of in showingthe ankle.

In any case, I hope you're not wearing thatstuff.

And when you're not, most people are not goingto see your socks.

Therefore, you don't have to worry.

You could be wearing pink socks and the onlypeople that are going to see it are occasionally when you're in a position in which the trouserscome up and you show a bit of sock.

Who knows why you want to be wearing pinksocks? Maybe you want to be wearing red socks.


com makes a really cool red sock, really bright.

I just think something like that, people aregoing to see it and they're going to go, “Interesting.

” It's again one of those little style thingswhich can help you stand out.

You don't have to go with a bright color.

There are many socks with argyle patternswith blacks mixed in with greys that are very simple, very stylish, so let's say a gentlemanwho doesn’t want to be very loud, but he does want to introduce a bit of color to hishosiery — I think that's the other word for it.

At the end of the day, socks are somethingyou can have fun with.

If you know what you're doing style-wise, if you don't know what you're doing, go with simple black socks.

You're always going to be safe.

Unless you're going to the gym in the UnitedStates, then wear your white socks.

I guess that's a whole another subject.

I'm going to assume that you're not wearingwhite socks with your suit.

That was part of the three parts at the beginningthat you make sure your socks are dark, that you make sure that they fit you correctly, and you make sure that they match your trousers.

No socks as a statement or during the summer, this could be its own video.

I'm just going to say if you choose not towear socks, in my opinion, it should be in the summer.

It should usually be with a more casual suitand make sure to use that foot powder.


This has been Antonio Centeno with Real MenReal Style.

I hope you enjoyed the video.

If you want to learn more, make sure to checkour other videos and I will see you in the comments.




– Hey guys, how you doing? My name's Robby and today we'redoing somethin' I always do.

We're doing a bunch of crafts.

But before we begin there's one thing that I have to tell you guys.

T-Series is still almostbeating PewDiePie.

I know, it's a huge problem.

We can't let the king ofYouTube get overthrown.

So what I want you all of you to do is go to PewDiePie's channel and tell him that he can beat T-Seriesby making crafts.

I know it's a stretch and it sounds crazy, but I think it'll work.

Even Mr.

Beast knows this.

He has a whole channel now dedicated to him doing life hacks and crafts.

Felix, if you're watching this, you know what to do.

Anyway, let's do some life hacks! (cheering) (upbeat music) So I don't have anylipstick so I'm gonna see if Tori has any that I can borrow.

Lipstick, are you in here? Ouch, oh, that's not evenmakeup, what the heck? Where's Tori even keep her makeup? Oh, it was right out infront of me the whole time.

Maybe in the bathroom? Maybe one of these will work? This kinda looks like lipstick.

Sure, let's go with that one.

Okay, so the first step wasput the makeup on the finger.

Awesome, makeup is on my finger.

Then we get our tape, put it on there, and then get that fingerprint.

Yeah sure, that's good fingerprint.

Oh yeah, that'll totally work.

Okay, so just to showyou guys that this phone does unlock with my fingerprint, I'm just gonna, boop.

It's unlocked.

Do that again, put myfinger on it, it's unlocked.

Now, we're gonna try it with this one.

So it looked like she just kindof put it on another finger.

So I'm just gonna put it onmy middle finger right here.

Now, boom.

It's basically my finger thatI used to unlocked my phone.

This is my regular finger that I use, this is not my regular finger.

This is my regularfinger, unlocks perfectly.

Now we're gonna try it with this finger.

Ready? It's not unlocking.

It doesn't seem to be working! I feel like now it's just amixture of my two finger prints.

I'm gonna try it one more time.

Okay, so makeup on finger, tape on finger, we nowhave my fingerprint.

Now, I'm gonna put it on the phone and see if it unlockswithout me touching it.

Maybe if I put tape over my finger so that I don't mess withthe actual fingerprint.

Boom, let's try this.

It doesn't seem to be unlocking my phone.

So I'm gonna say thatthis doesn't work guys! (upbeat techno music) Okay, so first step, water.

Second step, boil the water.

(Robby claps)Water's boiled, then we add our tinfoil.

Boop! I guess I'm just supposedto boil it just like that.

Baking soda, even though Icould totally be sarcastic and just add regular sodalike they said in the video.

I'm gonna put a lot because I don't know how much I'm supposed to put.

Gonna let this do it's thing, I guess for a little bit.

Here's our copper key, let's see if it'll change color.

I'm not sure how long I'msupposed to leave this in for.

Let's pull it out.

Is it silver? I don't know.

Okay, that doesn't quite look silver.

Throwin' it back in.

I'm gonna go ahead and let this sit for five minutes and I'll be back.

Okay, let's see what the results are.

It still looks the same, I don't understand.

What is this supposed to do? Maybe if I put moretinfoil in, I don't know? I'm gonna try it with the tin foil like this on the outside.

We're gonna add some more baking soda too, just to be safe.

Oh no, I almost lost it.

It's still not turning silver.

What is supposed to be happening here? I don't understand.

Oh, what's this? Oh, that's just where thebaking soda dried onto it.

Oh my God, this is about to overflow.

I guess this one doesn't work.

Sorry, guys! (upbeat music) Oh boy, this is gonna be fun! So we got our condoms.

I can't wait for my new wrist cushion.

Whoo! Ew, it's already so slimy.

Fill it up.

There we go.

Oh, yeah! This looks like it's gonna be the best wrist cushion I've ever had.

Ewah! Whee! I have so many fond memories with condoms.

(laughing) (upbeat music) (yelling) Ah! – [Girl] Oh, it's in your hair! (Tori yelling in slow motion) – Oh, man, I am so excitedto use my new wrist cushion.

Don't need this one anymore! Oh yeah, that works.

That's perfect! I love it! This is the best life hack I've ever done! It's not lubey or slippery at all, it's perfect for using my mouse.

Yes, I love it! What's (beep) wrong with the internet? I wonder if I can put it on my camera.

Can you still see me? Oh, you can see my face! I don't know why it's so fun to play with water filled condoms.

(upbeat music) Okay, boys, we got our steak.

Ooh, that's a nice looking piece of meat.

Now, we're gonna try and torch this baby.

I don't see why this one wouldn't work.

I mean, it's basically the same thing as cooking a steak on a grill.

Oh, that thing is sizzling.

It's like popping.

Okay, this is just a touch scary, guys.

Can you eat like propane once it's like, can you eat this still? I feel like this is gonnaset off my fire alarm.

Okay, lets flip these bad boys over.

Oh, that is not cooked on that side.

Okay, now to cook the other side.

I mean, it seems to be working fine.

Oh don't mind me, I'mjust cooking my steak with a blowtorch.

(fire alarm beeps) Yep, I knew it! I knew that was gonna happen! Holy (beep)! Don't worry, everyone, I was just cooking steak with a blowtorch.

Ah, okay where was I? – [Tori] Is It working? – [Robby] It's working, see? I don't know if it's likeactually edible though.

– [Tori] I mean I would assume so.

– [Robby] Like, it's just propane.

It's like the same stuffyou use in your grill.

It's getting so hotit's melting the paper.

Do you wanna try some of this steak, Tori? – [Tori] I'm gonna pass on it.

– [Robby] You wanna passon eating the steak? – [Tori] (coughs) Sorry, youcan have it all to yourself.

(fire alarm beeps) – [Robby] Oh, it happened again.

Okay, good thing we're almost done guys.

This looks pretty good.

Okay so, Eddie's a professional cook.

What do you think about this? – [Eddie] Looks medium.

– [Robby] Looks about medium? Is that good? – You'd eat that right? – [Robby] I'm gonna try this.

You wanna try this with me? – (sniffs) I think I'll pass.

– [Robby] You wanna tryeating some of my steak? – I'm good.

– [Robby] Come on! It's good steak, it's gourmet.

I made it with a blowtorch.

You're gonna lick it? No, I'm gonna eat it! I'm gonna try eatin' this bad boy.

Okay, boys, now its time totry this beautiful steak.

Ooh, it's cooked all the way through.

Look at that!(cheering) I mean, it's a littlebit pink on the inside, but that's not bad.

Yep, its a steak.

(laughs) It's a little bit chewy.

It's not the best steak I've ever had.

It's not bad though, considering I cooked it with a blowtorch.

Yeah, it's cooked just right, kinda.

I mean, like I said, itis a little bit chewy.

A little bit of red inside, a little bit of pink.

I'm gonna have to say it works! (upbeat music) Oh wow, this life hackisn't body shaming at all! I love it! Okay guys, so this is my tummy.

It could be flatter, right? It could absolutely be flatter.

So we're just gonna get our tape and then apparently just like that.

Do another piece.

This is so ridiculous.

I'm just putting tape on my back.

It's good.

Okay, did it do anything? I don't know, I feel likeI look about the same.

What do you guys think? Do I look the same? I feel like I look pretty much the same.

So this is with the tape on me and then this is without the tape on me.

Yeah, I'm gonna go ahead and say that this didn't work for me.

(upbeat music) Huh, you guys thought thatthe blowtorch was crazy, I can't wait to try this one! I just know for a fact ifyou try and fish something out of the toaster with a fork, you're gonna get electrocuted.

So I feel like putting tinfoil in the toaster isn't the best idea.

But you know what? Five Minute Crafts hasnever let me down before.

So I'm gonna put my full trust in them.

(tin foil crinkling) There we go.

Awesome, it's the perfectsize for the toaster.

Okay, so we got oursteak, we got our toaster.

I'm actually gonna hookthis up to a surge protector because I don't trust itto not burn down my house.

Okay, now we just put it in the toaster.

I'm gonna put it on extra dark.

And now we wait ten minutes.

This is so like disconcerning.

I really hope this doesn'tlike burn down my house.

I'll see you guys in ten minutes or when this thing catches fire.

No, no, no, you're not ready yet.

Okay, fifth time.

(timer beeps) Okay, time is up! Gonna fish this bad boy out.

Oh man, okay.

Ooh, it's dripping.

It's a juicy steak! I'm gonna unplug this for safety.

Let's go inside and unwrap this baby.

(sighs heavily) Okay guys, now time to unwrap this baby.

Oh, man, ooh.

It is nice and hot still.

It doesn't look likeit's all the way cooked.

I don't know how I feel about that.

I think it still mightbe a little bit rare.

Eddie, you're the cooking expert.

What do you think of this? – [Eddie] Looks better than the last one! – Does it?- Yeah! – Would you eat this? – [Eddie] Yeah.

– Okay, try it.

– [Eddie] Can you like, eat it first and then– – You want me to eat it and then I'll spit it into your mouth? – [Eddie] Yeah, let's do that.

– Oh, (spits) it tastes like tinfoil.

This is awful.

(gags) I can't do it.

I feel like I'm literally eating tinfoil.

I don't even wanna put this in my mouth.

It looks like it's noteven cooked all the way.

I think the tinfoil melted onto my steak.

(gags) It's so gross.

Does anyone wanna try this steak? I'm gonna go ahead and saythat this one doesn't work.

Sorry, guys.

(snorts) Okay guys, now itseveryone's favorite part where I recreate the thumbnail! (Robby cheers) So we get our tinfoil.

Kind of just crumble itup to make it into a ball.

I've actually done this before, it's called the Tinfoil Ball Challenge.

I made a whole seriesof three videos where I do weird shit with the tinfoil balls.

Probably gonna (beep) upthe microwave really good.

They're really funny.

Go ahead and watch 'em if you guys want.

Yeah, that looks about the right size.

Okay, that should be good.

(camera shutter clicking) (upbeat music) So I bought bananas for this and they're already kind of going bad.

They didn't look likethis when I bought them, I swear, I think theyjust got a little bruised.

Anyway, apparently if you put tinfoil all over the stem of it, it'll keep it fresh longer.

Yeah, that looks like it'll work.

Okay, I'll show you guys theresults in a couple of days.

– [Man] Day two.

– Okay, so it's been about two days.

This is how our bananas look.

Oh, man.

I'd say that they're bothpretty equally messed up.

They definitely looklike they've aged a lot.

I don't think that puttingtinfoil on the stem really did anything, infact, this one actually looks like it's even moremessed up a little bit.

Well, yeah, I'd definitely say that these are about the same.

They both look like they'vegone through (beep).

I'm gonna have to say this one's busted.

(upbeat music) Man, I'll tell you what, these life hacks are getting harder and harder to do.

So first, I've gotta puta thumbtack in my paper.

I mean, now I got two holes in my paper.

Then I got my string.

Snip, snip! Now apparently, I should beable to draw a perfect oval now.

Oh, thumbtack fell out.

Grab my favorite pen.

(pen clicks) Okay, here we go.

Wish me luck, guys! Oh (beep), it flew out again.

Oh, that just popped out.

As you can see, it's workin' pretty good.

Let's try it with a different one maybe? Ah ha, perfect circle, perfect oval, every time! See, it's a perfect oval! Don't like how big that one is? Let's make it longer then, Iguess, that's how it works.

Oh (beep), how does that keep flying out? Ugh, my paper is so ripped now.

So I mean, it's kind of working.

It's just a little bit impractical because now you have holes in your paper.

So I guess we can say this one works.

Trying on Tights with CozyWow (Sock, Leggings and Scarfs Try on haul)

Hey y'all.

It's Alex and you are watchingPeach Perfect.

And I've got an awesome review for y'all today.

It's with a new company andI've never done this type of review and I think all of my feet people are going to reallyreally enjoy this one where y'all at.

It's a company that sent me a bunch of amazingsocks, tights, fishnets all that kind of stuff.

So I think y'all are really going to enjoythis is the first time I've ever reviewed socks and tights so this will be fun for meas well.

So a couple things; one I hope you all are having an amazing Memorial Day weekend.

I just got back from a weekend at the lake so fresh out the shower and a good tan goingon.

So if you are new to the channel definitely subscribe and welcome.

I am so happy to haveyou here.

Two, I do have an Amazon wishlist account.

So if you have got something in particularthat you would to see me try on or review.

If you want me to be a guinea pig for somethingdefinitely check out my wish list and hopefully you'll find something good there and threeI do have a patreon account.

So if you're looking for a little more exclusive material, you can definitely check that out.

I've got weekly selfies and a lot of really fun videosand reviews that no one else gets to see so definitely check out those.

Okay, so onto the review it's a company calledCozyWow.

So they have sent me a ton of socks, leggings, fishnets and they've even sent mea couple little kind of like square handkerchief scarf type things.

So the first thing I'mgoing to be trying on and I know a lot of people really like these kind of socks becausemost shoes are you know, low-cut, you know, a lot of the bands and a lot of the converseso they're real small little little sock and they've got the rubber.

And I'm going to kindof get close to you all can kind of see so they've got the little rubber on the heeland it comes real close, you know down far on the foot.

So I've got the great thing isthis pack comes with three black and three nude.

So there is the black and then the nudeand these are great.

I am going to be excited to try these because I have gotten a lot ofsocks like this in the past that they have the rubber and even with the rubber they stilljust don't stay on depending on the shoe.

I had these great pair of pink bands thatI loved so much, but I could never wear them because I don't like wearing tennis shoeswithout socks.

To me that's just gross.

I just I'm that's weird to me.

But so I reallywanted to be able to find something but I could never find a pair of socks that stayedon and then I didn't get blisters.

So I'll be excited to try them.

Okay, so like I saidthat, they come in with three black and then three of the nude.

So the next thing I've got is a pair of graytights me personally, these are not footless.

I am personally a big fan of the footlesstights and I think it's just because I grew up as a dancer.

And so I was constantly inand out of tights, especially, you know for ballet and recitals.

I was always always alwaysalways in and out of tights and especially with shoes.

Sometimes those seams on the tightscan be such a pain in the butt.

Should I say pain in the foot? So I am personally a fanof the footless tights, but I know everyone has their preference so, let's see.

I'm goingto be putting my hair up for this one because Lord it is getting in the way.


So hereare these little too tight.

So here are these you can kind of see full body great greatcolor.

I am always gray person.

So here is the gray and they are they're great.

The thingabout tights as you can you can wear them year round, you can wear them with dresses.

You can wear them with shorts.

I actually prefer wearing fishnets with like a littlecrop top and a pair of shorts over top.

I think they're really fun.

So you do get thefull foot which again, I just hate and you can kind of see on the bottom that seam I'mjust not a big fan of the seam in the foot.

That's ok.

So there is the gray pair.


The next pair I've got is a pair of red andlet's see if we can do this by this speed this up a little bit.


I am not a bigfan of red.

I just don't think it looks good on my skin tone.

So this I think is definitelygoing to be for a specific person because this is about as blood-red as you could possiblyget which is it's a beautiful color and I think red looks so good on so many people.

It's just I'm personally not a fan of red on me.

I just don't think it looks good.

Likea red lipstick on me.

Oh my gosh.

I hate red lipstick on me.

I am just not not a red fan, but these would be really fun.

Like for me I could definitely rock on it like, you knowChristmas or Halloween even because it's not a color that I wear a lot but for an occasion, so here is again, it does it's not footless.

It does have the seam on the bottom.

But, great great height, because some tights I feel like can be way too high up.

And thensome tights can be really low.

And so you're constantly happening having to yank them upand it does have the good seam around the waist.

So, okay.

So there's that pair.

And let's keep moving along.

All right.

Sofor me, I don't really wear a lot of scarves.

I'm not a big winter fan as you all know.

I do not like winter I do not like winter clothes.

So I am not that fashionable in thewinter because I hate all things winter, but the scarves that I do have I really do tryto get the square because I think they're the easiest to work with instead of like theround like the you ones and the the circle ones and the rectangular ones because I dotypically.

This is a beautiful color beautiful print.

What I typically do is I fold it inhalf and I wrap it and then underneath I make like a little knot so I'm going to wear ascarf this is this is how I typically wear it and I just kind of tuck that down.

So Iusually do it like this and I've usually have this is I've never I've never tried or wornreally a silk scarf like this.

So I don't know how how other if there's any other betterways to wear it and I'm sure some women out there will know a lot better than me, buttypically if it's a square scarf this is what I'm doing.

So there's that one.

This one is a fun print.

It's kind of likea navy blue.

And it's got this is this is all my equestrian people all the pretty littlehorses on there.

So same thing if I'm going to be wearing something like this, I'm goingto be doing the same exact thing kind of making a little, a little thing there and it justkind of leans over.


So the next pair is kind of like the firstpair of that I showed y'all the black and the tan.

So this is nice.

I like a variationin the color.

So same thing.

It came with a three pack of just the nude and then it'sgot like the little white seam around the foot and it's a little higher up than thefirst pair.

So it's not as low on the foot which I kind of like because I think it stayon better.

There is, it kind of comes up a little further, but same thing.

It's got theseam and it's got the rubber on the back of the heel which you can kind of see right there.

So there's the tan with the white.

And then same thing we've got the gray andanybody that has seen me review, knows I am obsessed with gray.

I love, love, love gray.

It�s my favorite color and especially in clothing.

That's my favorite color in clothing.

Same thing, we've got the gray that comes up a little higher and it's got the littlewhite seam around it and the rubber pieces on the inside of the heel so it'll come sita little better.

Okay, so I have now got six pairs of fishnet.

So bear with me.

Let me see if I can get these bad boys on because they are got the holesin the fishnet kinds of makes it tricky to put on.

Bear with me.

Same thing, these areall footed.

They're not footless.

But I do if I'm going to wear something I definitelywear fishnets over tights.

I am definitely more of a fishnet person than just just straighton full-blown tights.

So here is the first pattern which is really fun.

And again, that'swhat I like about like fishnets like these is because you can you can wear them in thesummer and that's actually when I wear most of my tights because I'm actually in the winterI'm so cold because I hate cold weather that I don't want to be wearing something likethis with a dress.

I want to have like 10 layers on it for my legs.

So up close youcan kind of see the pattern just kind of thicker, thicker kind of squares and then the smallerfish net.

So there's that.

And really nice material, really nice stretch.

Very, verywell made.

All right, same thing.

Hold on.

Let's get these.

I really like this material, almost this pattern I guess I should say it almost looks like kind of zebra ish whichis kind of cool because I don't think I've ever had a pair of fishnets like with thisdesign before so they're definitely kind of neat that way.

Oh yeah on these look reallygood.

that is the only thing about fishnet though boy, you got to be so careful puttingthese on that's a big reason why I just don't like tights in general.

It's because you canyou can just rip them so easily I didn't but I feel like I could okay.

So yeah really coolprint on this you can kind of see close up on that.

So like I said it almost kind oflike zebraish and I like the seam kind of down the side and the center.

So yeah, I likethem.

I like them.

I think better than last pair.

Okay, so four more of these and thenwe are done to hang there y'all.

Okay, I think this one's pretty too it's got, it's a little thicker design.

So there's definitely not as much skin showing on this one.

It'sdefinitely like a thicker pattern.

It's more it's like more tight-knit squares which arecool.

Alright, so here's this one.

Yeah, these are cool.

So again, same thing great heighton the waistline and nice material very nice and comfortable.

So there is a close-up ofthe design.

All right.

Three more.

These are definitely more samething a little closer design.

So definitely I think kind of not as much skin showing onthis one as like the first two.

You know what it look kind of looked that way when it wasbunched up.

But then when you put them on it definitely kind of spreads out a littlebit more.

Yeah, definitely spreads out a little bit more.

All right, so there is that oneback and here is the close-up.

There we go.

Alright, two more.

Say these are pretty.


So this almosthas like a floral design kind of built into it.

So these are going to be pretty I don'tthink I've ever had any like this.

This is kind of cool.

This is this is not what I'mused to yeah, kind of like a floral or kind of like an old oriental like tablecloth onthis.

It's kind of a weird design.

That's cool, though.

Okay, here's this.

I mean, thoseare cool.

Those are very cool the back on the really cool and here is the close-up.

So you can kind of see that.

All right, and the last one.

Oh, these are cool.

I think these are actuallygoing to be my favorite.

Yeah, these are fun.

This is this is of all the fishnets that Ihave.

This is kind of most like what I have just because it's kind of thicker and thinnerin some areas very cool.

This is definitely my going to be my favorite.

Because some ofthem are thicker, very difficult to get your foot in got to be careful on this one becauseboy, this is the one that you could probably put your toe right through and rip them open.


These are my favorite.

Let's see.


So here is this one.

Those are definitelymy favorite.

They're funky.

They're fun.

I like how big kind of like some pieces areand then how small the other pieces are.

So there's that.

So there's kind of a close up.

All right.

How to knit a short row heel for a sock by ARNE & CARLOS

We're here with our Pairfect yarn.

If you didn't see our previous episode, we've designed a yarn for REGIA called Pairfect, which allows you to knit two identical socks without looking for the beginning and the end, because it's all there Its marked with a yellow thread that you cut and throw away And today we're going to show you how to do the little short row heel that we do because we're knitting.



I mean, usually we like knitting socks from the top up, because then you can do a really easy heel that we've shown you already.

We've done a few tutorials that you can look for on Arne & Carlos Youtube Channel.

But now we're going to do the short row heel becausefor the Pairfect, you have to start from the toe Sorry, from the top, and then then go down – so it's a top-down sock – and then you need a short row heel .

Ao Arne has been gracious enough to agree to showing.



So this is like one way to do a short row heel.

There's probably.



(there's many ways) .



a hundred ways.

But we show you one way which is easy.

I just want to make two rounds of bluebefore I do the heel, and we do the.



like the Norwegian way, with five needles.

We never do circular or magic loop.

On socks we like to work on four needles or with knit with five Now you see, the sock is ready down tothe heel and then we do the the heel, this is the beginning, so we workon two needles for the heel.

So I would work on these two needles and what I do is I knit from this side and over to this side.

And I what you call that? Youskip one stitch on every needle, kind of.

That's hard to say in English.




So I'll show you.

I just start knitting, so I knit the first needle like this So I knit all these stitches then I go on the other needle, and I knit.

All of them except the last stitch One more.



And I don't knit the last one then I turn it, and I go back.



and I slip the first off then I pearl back Then when I come to the nextneedle I pearl all of the stitches but not the last one.

And then I go back again on the knit side, and again I don't knit the last one of the remaining stitches so then i have two leftovers.

I knit this one, I leave the last one;and then I go back again with knit.

I slip the first and then I knit the rest.

Then I continue knitting, knit and purl, like this on two needles and then when I have like for this I think like six stitches left, on each needle, like in the center, then I stop.

Then that's like that I have enough for the heel; that depends on which you are using.



or the thickness of the yarn; on this one I think six is good.

Then I have two left on the needle, but then you see there's a hole in between.

So then I leave this and I go back, slip this off.



and I go back like this.

And I go along the next again.




Now you done so many.



like a few needles, then you see where the hole is, on your sock; so you know when you are one stitch before the hole, it's time to turn the work and work your way back.

There's the hole, so I turn and I go back.

Slip one and knit.

Now, when I finish this this needles with skipping one stitch I will show you how to how to fill the hole, or knit so don't get a hole in your sock.

Again you see, there's the hole so I knit two more, and then I turn it.

Now I have three on this needle.



andI slip the first one and I pearl back Obviously I've been knitting back and forth, and I have these stitches that I didn't knit So.



I slip one, I purl one.



two, three, four, five and six, then i go to the next needle I knit to the last stitch before the hole.




) When I finish this (seven.



) then I turn it again.



then I can start because now I have.



No, I have six, I have to do one more.

So I slip, I knit the next and go on this side Two, three, four, five, six.



And now I have six on this and I have seven.



so let me go back and make six on the last needle also.

So I slip, purl the five.



Going to do the other needle, and I purl the six Now, I have six left on each needleand you can see the heel is coming Let's see.



Oh, that's a gorgeous heel! I know.



Now I have to go and knit these holes I made I have to close those holes because you don't want that on your heel Now I'm in, I knitted up to the stitch before the hole and the stitch after the hole, so I knit these two together, I lift the stitch below the last one and I make one and I turn it around, and I pearl back to the other side and I purl all the way until I have one stitch left before the hole.

Then I purl the stitch before the holewith the stitch after the hole and I make one.







) Not really, no.



(laugh) Purl from this side.



to the stitch before low.

Purl these two together OK, so how are we doing Arne? It's coming! Let me see.


Oh, wow! Look at that! (the heel is coming) That's a fabulous heel! I know.



it's just knitting two together and youmake one so I slip I'm it the rest of the stitches all the way to the otherside I think you've still got a couple of times and I mean there's nothing elseto say that's the way to do the heel basicallyyou sleep you need to the other side get two together make one turn around and goback yeah yeah and if you haven't gotten thatgo onto our website there's a pattern there we've written it down for youbecause aren't hasn't said it enough times have you know so it's there i cansay it again just watch me okay look I have to I needone more there is one stitch before the whole one after so i need those twotogether I lift the stitch below the last one like something I couldn't liftit whoops that always happens it happens inthe best families you know come on i lifted and I'm it okay while you keep knitting that and Igo back yeah well you keep meeting that gorgeousheal and I just want to say a few things again about the perfect as long asyou're knitting from the top down because that is actually the only thingthat you have to do so that perfect works as long as you do that it doesn'tmatter which he'll you choose the heel will come out anyway and the pattern isgoing to be identical if you're using the same he'll pattern in the in theother sock both stocks are going to be the same the tension doesn't matterwhatever tension you use your going to get two identical Sox anyway it's allamazing technology from 2016 basically and nobody else has this so you know the people that do it theyreally know what they're doing otherwise they wouldn't do no so-so really perfect is the way to goif you're an advanced litter and you just want to knit something mechanicallywithout thinking if you are an intermediate dinner that doesn't likeusing two or three colors do the perfect and if you're a new beginner trust usand let me tell you something very interesting ok if you look at this now I'm purlingyes what's happening imperiling all the way through this stitch before the wholeyeah what's so funny is that these people okay now I get it there you seethere's the whole sign pearl this one there's the whole one stitch once itprobably is two together and you block the hole all you say that you close yeah you kind of yeah you get rid of thewhole Basin and I pick up the stage and I make 1i pearl new one and I turnaround and I go back again and now i'm almost there and then what do you do beyond that beyond what do you mean yougo yeah what you do when you do all the twisting and early and whatever then Ido the foot that's what I was after and we will put the whole thing I mean thewhole pattern is is on the website anyway so you can just go there and seethe rest of what happens and if you have any doubts come here look at thetutorial then go back to the pattern in peace and quiet so let's see the he'llput it on the table put it flat let's have a look and let's show ourviewers what the heel is looking like if the heels coming yeah that is an amazing he'll basically I have to say it'sbeautiful and yeah there you see and you can see another one here this is done ina slightly ya loser attention but it's still another he'll be easy now isn't it yeah i think with this you can do anycircuit and portal yeah and we hope you enjoyed the perfect nobody else is doingthis because only read you can do perfect right now so yeah just enjoy it and hopefully nexttime we will have all these socks on our feet and you remember when you'refinished here every time you need two together you should make one to fill theholes i have to put ok it's pearl that's by.

Socks Vs No Socks | What To Wear For Triathlon

– Working out what to wear in a triathlon race can be tricky.

There's so much more toconsider than just your trisuit.

Well, I'm going to be opening up that age old debate ofsocks versus no socks.

So in this video, we're goingto be looking at the pros and the cons and comparingdifferent race styles to help you decide whichside of the line you sit.

Now, if like me, you come from a running or a cycling background, the thought of doingthat sport without socks might seem incomprehensible, not just because of the comfort level but also the unwrittenrules of that sport.

But don't worry, you'redoing triathlon now, so you can throw those rules away.

(whooshing) (upbeat music) OK, let's start with socksand the pros for wearing them.

Well, the obvious is, they feel good.

Putting on a brand newpair of colourful socks has gotta be a good thing.

And they also act as a barrier between your foot and your shoe.

And if you do go fora sport specific sock, they can even add that bitof support to your foot.

Wearing the correct pair of socks can reduce the risk of blistersand prevent any hot spots, especially when it comes to running.

And talking of hot, if you dohave the right pair of socks they can actually help your feet keep cool and vice versa you can get socks that are specialised tokeeping your feet warm if you're competing inreally cold conditions, so they don't turn to iceblocks on the end of your legs.

But going back to the heat, if you get that burning feelingon the soles of your feet when you're doing a long run on asphalt, certain socks can also reduce that.

OK, I'm probably starting toshow where my allegiances align but it's time to look atthe cons for wearing socks.

Obviously, in triathlon, time is of an essence.

When it comes to transitions, you don't want to be losingthose valuable seconds of having to dry your feet, trying to squeeze your toesinto well fitting socks and it also takes a lot of effort, you might even find ifyou're out of breath that you need to take a restand sit down to do this.

And finally, if you'reracing somewhere that's hot and it's a long race, you've got to think about those tan lines.

It might seem like a badgeof honour at the time around your triathlon friends, but when you come to a party and you want to wear a nice dress, those tan lines mid calfare not gonna look good.

(beep) OK, maybe I was talking toour female viewers there.

Right, now it's time to look at no socks and pros of going with that.

Well the obvious one comesto speedy transition.

Now this is especiallyimportant if you're racing in a draught legal triathlon and you're trying to make thebike pack out of the swim.

Now there's no point inhaving comfortable feet with your socks on if youcan just see the lead pack disappearing into the distance.

But, it also looks like you mean business.

It's a sign of a toughtriathlete going without socks.

And then finally, asI've already mentioned, If you're racing somewhere hot, you're avoiding those awful tan lines.

OK, you didn't think I was gonna forget about the cons did you? Right, here we go, top of the list, or top of my list anyway, is comfort.

Even if I have to wear my trainers without shoes back from training because I've forgottento take a clean pair, they start to feel alittle bit uncomfortable.

And that horrible feelingof sticky clamminess inside your shoe just isn't nice.

And talking of discomfort, unless you have a pair of shoes that fitabsolutely perfectly, then you're gonna start to get blisters and rubs pretty quickly.

Also, if you're racing inpoor weather conditions, your feet will get cold much faster.

And finally, a pointthat maybe not all of you will agree with me on, you don't get the chanceto brighten up your kit with a pair of nice looking socks.

(upbeat music) So we've looked at the pros and the cons, it's now time for youto make that decision.

But, there are a couple of other factors you might want to considersuch as the race type.

For example, if you'redoing a draught legal race then you're not going to want to risk wasting any time in transition.

And then you've got the distanceof your race to consider.

The longer the race, the smaller the ratioof transition will be and the more important comfort becomes.

But, if you look at the pros, you're not gonna see anyoneracing Olympic distance or less bothering withsocks in their transition.

But then if you look at the70.

3 or middle distance races, you'll see a mixture amongst the pros, some choosing to wear socks and some not.

And then for the full distance, the majority will wear socks at least for the run, but someof them even for the bike.

We've already covered the race conditions, but don't forget that sockscan play an important part in keeping your feet warm or cool whichever it is you require.

And it's especiallyimportant when it comes to the longer distance racing.

And another area that's worth mentioning, is socks for aero or compression gains.

Now recently, we saw protriathlete Lucy Charles using aero socks on the bike leg in the Ironman South Africa.

Now, if you think thegains of wearing aero socks will be bigger than thetime it will take you to get the tight fittingsock on in transition, then it's somethingdefinitely worth considering.

And, a lot of triathletesdo use compression socks.

If you're one of those people, just remember you can't weara full sock for the swim.

If you're gonna use calfguards and it's a wetsuit swim, then you can put them on underneath and you won't waste time in transition.

But, if it's a non-wetsuit swim, or you do what to weara full compression sock, then you'll need to considerthe time it's gonna take you to put it on compared to the benefits you'll have from wearing them.

Finally, you need to decide whether you're gonna useyour socks for the bike and the run or just the run.

And this will also dictatewhat type of sock you choose.

(upbeat music) It's time for tips.

We'll start with socks, now it might sound silly but you need to practiseputting on your socks fast.

And there is a certain knack to it.

Some people will roll theirsocks down in preparation.

Others will fold them.

It's a personal preference.

And then if you've gotsocks that are specific to a left and right foot, make sure that you put them in or on the correct shoe tosave time in transition.

And finally, there's nothing wrong with wearing new socks on race day.

But don't experiment witha new style or design unless you practise first.

If you're racing with no socks, you're going to have to do some training without them as well.

Now this is to get yourfeet used to the feeling and they will start toget a little bit harder.

And if you have differentshoes for racing.

Make sure you do at least acouple of sessions in those.

And you'll start to identify any hot spots or areas where they might rub.

And then before your race, you can put a littleVaseline on those spots and that should help reducethe chance of getting blisters.

And then in T1, you canhave a towel ready to help dry your feet very quickly.

Pop some talcum powder inside your shoes and that will help your feet slide in and also a little bit oflubricant, such as Vaseline, on the heel just to help withthe ease of getting them on.

Now you can also get somemore race specific shoes for triathlon which mightbe worth considering if you're sure you want todo longer distance races without socks as these could be a little bit more comfortable and sometimes even havean extra inner layer.

Well, that should have helped you decide which side of the fence you sit on.

Are you socks or no socks? Do let us know which you choose and why.

And you probably guessed by now, that I'm a strong advocatefor wearing socks.

And that is partly becauseI came into triathlon starting off with thelonger distance races.

But, I do have my first eversprint triathlon coming up.

So it's probably time I dipmy toes into going sockless.

And if you want somesimilar race day hacks, we've made a video on that just here.

And I also made a videorecently on how to run in sand and that's just here.


2 Socks at-a-time on 2 Circulars, Parts 1-7

knitting two socks at the same time is a good method for knitting socks especially if you're the kind of person who gets second sock syndrome where you knit through a pattern you're really enjoying the pattern enjoying the yarn and then after you finish one sock you kind of

feel like you're done with it and you don't want to go on and do the same exact thing over again so knitting them both at the same time keeps you from having second sock syndrome and it also is a way of making sure that the sock cuff and

the sock foot are the exact same length on both socks so in this in this tutorial we're stood weight yarn which is much heavier yarn and bigger needles than most socks patterns call for and that's so that we can get through the techniques more quickly so that you

can move on to other patterns and knit them using what you learned here now if you want to follow along with the pattern that we're using here for these socks it's available for purchase and download over on my website or the techniques that we're using you can pretty

much use for any cuff down sock pattern that you want to knit two socks at a time on two circulars again these are the socks that we're knitting they are kind of heavy socks they're maybe not the greatest for putting in a pair of sneakers or something but

they are great for wearing around the house kind of like slippers and again once you learn these techniques you can go on to use normal sized sock needles and normal sized sock yarn now when we're working two socks at a time we're using two balls of yarn at

the same time and the first thing I want to show you is how to prep the yarn for that now I'm going I'm just using this worsted weight yarn it's a wool blend it's available at almost any craft store or fabric store the first thing I'll make a

lesson out of this is the yarn pulls from the inside on a skein like this and when you look at the label if the label is printed this way it's always going to pull from the left side here it's going to come out from there if the labels

printed up and down it's going to pull from the top so drumroll please while I see if I can make this happen not too bad okay so I found the end of my yarn the next thing it's very handy to have is a kitchen scale because I want

to separate this yarn half and half there's going to be leftover yarn so it doesn't have to be perfect but a kitchen scale will get you a lot closer than just eyeballing it well so I'm turning the scale on and this is supposed to be 85 grams of

yarn and it's 82 so I didn't get all the yarn I paid for but it's only a couple of grams so what I'm going to do here is I'm going to use the ball winder to start winding this yarn to get half of it wound over here and

if you don't have a ball winder that's fine you can wind by hand this just happens to be a lot faster what I'm going to do is I'm going to put the yarn the big skin of yarn on here and just keep winding until I get down to

half the weight which is in this case is going to be 41 grounds we're getting close you can see how much faster the ball winder works been winding it by hand okay laughs it says 39 now I went too far that's very close okay there we go so

I can break the yarn at that point confident that this is very close to exactly one half of the yarn and so is this in the next video we're going to cover the cast on you now that you have your yarn wound into two equally sized balls we're

ready to do the cast on I'm going to warn you the cast on is kind of complicated and I haven't worked out here I think or I can clearly show you how to do it but once you get past the cast on and the first couple of rows

it gets really easy it's really easy to get into a groove with it and do it over and over again let's see what we got we have our two circular needles you'll see that I have this taped down because these kept curling up and I wasn't able to

show you what I was doing it won't be necessary for you to tape it down while you're doing it but because you'll be able to keep track of it I actually have to demonstrate the first thing you do is you cast on all the stitches onto one needle

and then transfer half those stitches on to the other needle that's easy enough I don't need to demonstrate that part for you but then you want to arrange your needles where you have one in front and one in back and the one in back is where the working

yarn is coming from okay then follow those needles to the other end your working yarn is coming from not only the back needle but the right side okay you want to have it look just like this so follow those needles around to the other end and you want

to cast on the number of stitches in your pattern your pattern tells you to on the front needle meaning the needle where the working yarn is not and I have this blue cord here that's the back needle and this brown cords the front needle it doesn't really matter

just for demonstration purposes I want you to realize that I've cast all of these stitches on to the front needle here and here okay now I want to transfer half of those stitches to the other needle which is in this case the back needle and I'm going to

lose my tape there which is okay and I should tell you while I'm doing this when you transfer stitches you always want to put your needle in as if to purl and slide it over okay okay there we go ahead and take this tape off before it messes

us up of course it's stuck to the yarn okay I'll take this tape off and I'm going to slide everything over to what I'm going to call like the starting position where your working yarns both working yarns are on the back needle and we're getting everything geared up

to work from the left hand to the right hand so all the stitches are here in the left hand and the working yarns are on the back needle and this is a good spot to make sure that nothing's twisted it's pretty easy to see if something's twisted so

I'm straightening everything out okay now from this starting position we're ready to knit and things are still not tangled with my working yarns that's nice my working yarns here this is going to be the first stitch that I knit when I do use this working yarn to knit

this stitch it's going to close up the cuff of the sock so everything's scooted towards a tip but I want to take this back needle and pull it out long like that now these are the two needles I'm going to knit with I put my needle in there

and take the working yarn whoops I actually need it to come from here okay I'm going to wrap this this needle and really tighten it up here before I pull it through now if you look at this normally when you pull a stitch through you're not working from

the cord you're working from a stitch on the needle now so you want to watch your tension on this you can pull it too tightly because the cord isn't this big around is the needle but on this first stitch we do actually want to pull it pretty tightly

so in the pattern that we're using here it's knit two purl two across this whole half of the sock this is kind of slow going on this first part but like I said it does get easier okay the way that I have the stitches arranged you will always

end with a purl two okay we finished the first round or the first half round of the first stock we're moving on to the next sock now which happens to be waiting here for us very conveniently scoot everything close to the tip of the needle and drop the

working yarn from the first sock we're done with that pick up the working yarn from the second sock I've already made sure nothing is twisted put my needle in pull that first stitch pretty tightly and work k2p to across you can see that there is a lot going

on and flopping around right now but just focus on the two needles that you're knitting with okay I actually made a mistake here in my counting because I have an extra stitch we were just going to ignore that I just purl two together if you have an eagle

eye I would if I was making these socks for real and not just demonstrating and I would go back and fix that but it's not a big deal right now I'm showing you how to do it now this appears to be kind of a tangled mess I am

going to straighten this out this is something that annoys me to no end this having stuff really twisted around so I spend the first few rows here straightening things out kind of a lot okay here we are working yarn here and working yarn here you can see I've

gotten everything down to one needle I have an empty needle so I'm going to use this empty needle in my right hand and knit off this other needle I'll get everything into the starting position that we discussed the last half round close to the tips of the needles

with the working yarn on the back needle okay there we go so this is going to be the first stitch I knit with this as an empty needle I always pull the back needle long even though I'm not going to be using it this time so I'm going

to be using this empty needle and pull that first stitch pretty tightly and just work across in knit two purl two on this side and when I'm done whipping this side this half of both socks I will have everything again on two needles and I'll know it's the

beginning of my round there's one more thing I want to show you and starting the second sock okay now I'm moving on to the second sock and the one thing I want to be sure to tell you this is pretty important drop that working yarn from the first

sock and pick up the working yarn from the second sock this is good this is a nice way of knitting socks but you don't want to knit them together you will have have to rip it out you'll have no choice but to rip it out if you end

up knitting them together and then just work across the second sock as you did for the first and the next row will be just like the first row except for everything is joined this time and that's it you want to follow the pattern for the length of cuff

that you need to knit and in this pattern I have you knitting three rounds plain before we start with the heel flap which is what we'll cover in the next video you now you should be ready to start the heel flap what you have are two finished cuffs

exactly the same length because they weren't at the same time and then in the pattern that we're using here I have you knit three rounds plane with no ribbing before we start on the heel flap now the heel flap is this back part of the sock right here

I always say the human foot is a very weird thing to knit clothing for this is where it becomes obvious the heel flap is back section here we're going to knit this independently of the rest of the sock and get back to it but let's first start with

this thing okay take a look at my work here and you'll see that I have yarn wound on bobbins this isn't important for you you'll have your yarn in the balls that you're using but because I had so many samples to knit up I just wound some of

this onto these these bobbins so I could use the other balls of yarn to knit more samples so here are our cuffs and you should have some pretty good practice now knitting with two circular needles we're going to get everything up into the starting position like this and

for the heel flop we're going to knit across this half of the socks only back and forth everything on the back needle is just going to hang there until we get back to it so I'm going to pull the back needle long and get my working yarn I

didn't mean for that to go flying can my working yarn to position and to knit the heel flap the first thing we do is slip this stitch now to slip a stitch you put your needle in as if to purl and slide it over to the other needle

and then the pattern is slip knit slip knit all the way across yep I need to release more yarn on my bobbin here hmm I ended with a knit stitch and I can tell I did because my working yarn is coming from the last stitch there so I'll

slip knit slip knit slip and knit now of course I drop that working yarn I move on to the second sock and I'm going to do the same series of stitches across here slip knit now you've had a lot of good practice of course I'm working in the

round with these two circulars but this is where things are going to change instead of turning your work and going on to the next needle the other half of stitches we're going to just work the wrong side of these stitches here so we're essentially going to work on

what is now the back needle since we've turned the work and in this pattern I have you slipping the first stitch and then purling across all of the other stitches this is so loud table with the paper over it for shooting video the needles make a lot of

noise on this table okay that gives you the idea you're going to finish working across these stitches and then working on the wrong side doing the same thing slipping the first stitch and purling across all those and then you'll turn the work and again only work across these

front stitches and then only work across them from the back on the other side so you'll continue to work the first half of the stitches on both socks following your pattern for as many roses that tells you to I recommend using a row counter or keeping tally marks

because it is kind of difficult to count those rows when you're done next up we're going to learn how to turn the heel you now that you've finished the heel flap we're going to do what is called turning the heel and that is this little part of the

sock right here there isn't really very much to it but it's kind of an interesting piece of knitting in that we're going to use what are called short rows I'm going to demonstrate that for you right now here's your knitting as it is right now and the heel

flops are finished these instep stitches are hanging out waiting to be worked you're ready to work a wrong side row on these heel flaps so the instructions tell you to purl 12 then purl two together purl one more and then turn the work now before I go any

further I want to tell you that we've been working all the way across and then all the way back for the short rows we have to actually have to work each heel individually we're going to pretty much finish this one and then go over here we're going to

finish this side – one row and then move on to the next one but this is all clearly spelled out in the pattern I just want to make sure you get the technique so I'm going to turn the work meaning I have the right side of the work

facing me again I slip the first stitch you always put your needle in we do that again as if to purl and slide it over knit five knit two together and knit one and then turn the work you're going to continue following the instructions and you turn the

work you can see you still have stitches over here we turned before we reach the end of the row which is why we have to finish each one of these heels individually now on the last row of this one you will reach the end of the row and

you'll jump over here and do the same thing to the second sock so you definitely want to follow your pattern for this part because turning the heel there the rows are all numbered and you want to keep track of where you are because it's very difficult to go

back and count if you lose place of where you are and I have you working the first seven rows I believe on the first sock you jump over the second sock and work eight rows and then you eventually go back to the first sock and knit that eighth

row on the first sock don't get confused by this just follow the pattern and it will lead you through it I just want to make sure that you understood how the short rows work and how we turn the work before we've reached the end of the row okay

next up is probably the most complicated part of the socks but it's very interesting I think it's picking up the heels for the gusset you now you should be ready to pick up stitches for the gusset I'm going to carefully show you the part of the sock I'm

talking about because I don't want to lift my hands because I'm holding this work down I'm going to have to lift my hands the gusset is what we're going to pick up along the sides of the heel flap here like this and it's what gets us started the

right direction so that we can knit the foot of the sock okay nothing moved here let's go ahead and take a look here your work should look like this you have one needle running all the way through like this and the second needle is just here running through

these these heel flap stitches now where we're going to start I should mention let me go ahead and mention this my pattern that we're using here is a little bit different than most other patterns that you'll see for for socks on two circulars if you're really paying attention

you'll notice that we have one extra row of knitting on one side of each sock now doing that makes the pattern much much more simple to follow but it won't make a bit of difference when the sock is actually finished you will not notice one little tiny row

from one side of the sock to the other I promise but it does make it really different and if you're using a different pattern and not the one we're using here you might notice that there's that it's going to we're not going to follow this pattern isn't going

to follow the one you're using right here even if it has up to this point okay back to the work here we're going to pick up these stitches along this side of the heel flap we just finished turning this heel and we have the right side of the

work facing us and we're going to pick up these stitches using this yarn and the same needle that we've been working with and to do that we roll the side of the heel flap so that we see the very edge most stitches and you'll see that there are

a series of V's you want to put your needle in usually I skip the first one I go into the second one put your needle into that V and wrap it and pull it through that's one into the next one wrap it and pull it through into the

third one we're putting it into both legs of the V and in this pattern I'm having you pick up 11 which is usually about right for getting us right down to the bottom of this I wasn't counting but that's okay there we go now things are starting to

look pretty funny we're going to pull our cord and use the same needle to actually we need to work you're following my pattern we need to work 8 on these these heel flap stitches before we go any further row 8 I mean which happens to be slip 1

knit 10 knit 2 together now we have the correct number of heel stitches we just finished up that one now I am going to take flip my work and take a new needle let me double check this nope I'm going to take the same needle and I'm going

to pick up the same 11 stitches on this side of the sock with the right side facing let me show you again and this is the first this is where I stopped working the heel short row heels then I picked up those stitches I finished the short row

heel here and I'm going to pick up these stitches on this side I'm running out of working yarn okay there now things look very weird that's I can even twist this around for you to see I'm going to turn the work because I want to work across the

instep stitches for the first time in a long time there we go now I see what it's doing okay you have heal stitches picked up on one side of each sock take your needle and we're going to work across these stitches we haven't worked on just knit across

20 and 20 and then you'll pick up the stitches for this heel flap you're going to knit across all these and pick up the stitches for this heel flap let me get you started on that we're not working ribbing anymore because this is the top of the sock

now the foot of the sock okay and this part isn't hard to understand it's very much like how we worked the heel flap or the cuff of the sock before move on to the second instep here put your needle in and drop that working yarn I can be

my new motto drop that working yarn when we're done with this we'll have everything back on two needles again guess I could lift my hands off the table a little bit okay now we're in a position I can show you everything's back on two needles you'll turn your

work and you're going to use we're kind of in the normal starting position here even though we have this big gap of stitches here you pull the back needle long and you want to pick up eleven stitches all the way up to here you know the others picking

up these stitches and I'm thinking and I have not been counting normally I do count now this part does get kind of difficult to work because I mean not difficult really but it's tight because we have a lot of stitches and as we decrease it's going to get

easier you're just going to work across what was the back of the heel stitches here and then down the side of the first 11 stitches we picked up for the side of the heel okay and then whoops and then using that same needle we switch over to the

next sock and we finally pick up the last 11 stitches whoops I split a stitch there okay well you don't have to watch me do this I think you have the idea now about picking up the stitches once you pick up the 11 you'll knit around to the

end and you'll have half of the stitches on one side or you'll have all of the heel and gusset stitches on one side and your instep stitches on the other needle and then once you get to that point we're going to be ready to decrease for the gusset

stitches and that will get us back down to the original number of stitches we had and we started the cuff and that's what we'll cover in the next video you the most difficult part of knitting these socks is behind you now now is when the socks on two

circulars is really going to start to move quickly you because as working with DP ends you're always readjusting things working with three or four dpns but with socks on circulars everything is cut in half and you're only readjusting after two sides of how half the socks on two

sides it does go more quickly if that made sense so let's take a look at where we are now we're ready to decrease for the gusset and I've already worked the first bit of this pattern or this section in that I've knit I've used my empty needle and

I've knit across the instep stitches and so I have these two very funny shapes we're going to decrease in four different spots which are all on the back needle right now here here here and here and we do that every other row let me show you how this

goes I'm going to get myself into the starting position with these needles and this one's pulled long and the pattern tells us on this first sock and it's it's identical across both socks so we knit one SSK which is slip slip knit to decrease we knit across everything

else until we get to the last three stitches of this sock oK we've got to almost be there ok the last three stitches we knit two together knit one the reason we're using SS Ches and knit two togethers this because these are mirror image decreases mirror image decreases

yes and it will make the two halves of the sock match each other okay so we worked across that first sock we're going to do the exact same thing over here where we will start off with knit one SSK work all the way around to the last three

stitches knit two together knit one and then we knit across well that's the end of our row the second row is just a plain knit all stitches around until we get back to the beginning of the round and then the third round is another decrease round where we

will knit plain across the instep stitches knit one SSK knit all the way around to the last three stitches on the first sock knit two together knit one jump over the second sock nick knit one SSK knit all the way around to the last three stitches on the

second sock knit two together knit one so you'll follow your pattern but every other row is a decrease row every row every other row is also knit round that makes sense yes and then you're going to knit the foot plane without decreasing once you get back down to

the original number of stitches you started with you'll knit the foot plane for as long as you need the foot to be for whoever you're knitting a sock for and then you'll want to do the toe decreases you want to shape the toe of the sock it's all

in the pattern but it is just like the gusset decreases except where you're going to start decreasing on the instep side as well and then next up we're going to graph the toe together using the Kitchener stitch your socks should be just about finished now we only have

the toes open we need to graph the toes together using something called the Kitchener stitch which is a seamless graft and you won't feel any kind of seam or anything on your toes when you wear the socks now before I show you I want to show you this

this when we shoot videos I make up things I call peace out yeah the sock finished at different stages throughout the pattern so that I can demonstrate things I've never had so many peace outs for a pattern before because this is two socks at a time look at

this pile of knitting that we plowed through in these videos anyway I just thought that was interesting so I always have a pile of something but I've never had a mountain before okay let's get to the socks we just have very few stitches on each sock I've broken

the work both working yarns leaving myself about an 18 inch tail and going into the starting position my working yarns and back of course I'm going to thread this yarn onto a tapestry needle a blunt end yarn needle okay starting with the first stitch on the front needle

I'm going to put my tapestry needle in as if to knit pull that through and take that stitch off then go into the next stitch on the front needle as if to purl and leave that stitch on then I'm going to go into the back needle for a

stitch as if to purl pull that through and take it off and then into the next stitch as if to knit and leave it on and then I usually pull it tight so it's a four stitch repeat let me show you again knit off purl purl off knit

and then I always give it a little tighten after that knit off purl purl off knit you'll continue this all the way across all of these stitches and when you're done you'll just pull the the working yarn through the last loop tighten it up and then you'll want

to weave in the ends and then of course you'll just go over to the second sock and finish that up and then you will have a finished pair of socks you know it's funny because usually when I teach people to make mittens or gloves or socks or something

the last thing I always say in the video is go make another one that you're done you finished a whole pair of socks and and you won't get second sock syndrome since you've already finished everything good luck
