My friend Amy from Things to knit and sew  has made some knitted furniture “socks” to put over the legs of her kitchen chairs. I thought they’re a great alternative to sticky felt pads, which allways fall off when I move  our furniture around.

Since we have new hardwood floors everywhere I wanted to try these self-made protectors on our sofa. Instead of knitting I decided to crochet them in single crochet stitches and used some leftover grey wool yarn. Now I will have to wait, if the “socks” stay on the sofa legs. If so I will make them for all of our movable furniture.
