I Love Sock Knitting

Written by Sarah on September 12th, 2011 Posted in DIY, knits, socks, style

I’m not going to lie. I stopped posting because I started making socks. And I haven’t stopped.
I always swore that I’d never make socks. Mainly I didn’t like the idea of them eventually getting holes in them. All that work for nothing! Also, I hate entrelac and silly lace socks. I really like plain old socks with cool colors. Maybe even chunky socks. Oh, and I don’t like pictures of feet. Mostly pictures of my feet.

Anyway, I made socks. And everyone is right. Socks are amazing. This is my first pair. I adapted this cable sock pattern to make a pair for Jon. I took the cables out of them for something a little bit more modern-business. I got a gorgeous skein of Madeline Tosh Pashmina in Mare. I definitely can’t stay away from MadTosh. It’s my favorite yarn and I won’t knit anything else!
I’m really happy with my first pair. They knit up really quickly and, once again, everyone’s right, they really are great for commuter knitting. And since then, I’ve made two more pairs for myself.
Sock knitting, love it or hate it?

    Welcome to sock knitting! I agree with the Mad Tosh but you’ve gotta try Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock. Another amazing sock yarn.
