    DIY Climashield Sleep Socks...NOT!!!

    So did you hear the one about the guy who tried a new (to him) technique of making insulated socks? He figured it may be easy and was eager to try.

    Sooooooo......he made the liner for one foot (and it looked & fit great!) and started cutting fabric for the outer. Then...



    Then proceeded to cut until he realized something was under the fabric. Bet you can't guess what he just cut through??????

    Yep, destroyed my liner.

    I put away the materials and the Injector and apologized to my wife for the words she heard.

    Bright side is I think I have a good way to make them and will try again....but not today.

    Sorry to hear your woes. I've done similar things to underquilts - I had to go outside and have a hissy fit. Now I always look underneath to see if theres something other than what I want to sew.
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    Done the same while sewing and embroidering, man that is so frustrating. I feel your pain. Good move on trying it another day with a clear mind.
