I seem to be averaging about one pair of socks per year and here’s the latest!

I love knitting socks more than any other knitting. It can be pure meditation, or often just easy knitting while watching a movie with just enough challenge in the heel and toe to keep up interest in the project.

And handmade socks are just so toasty and nice! The yarn is Madeline Tosh in the Vanilla Bean colorway and it’s such a pleasure to work with!

      Thank you, they are verrry comfortable πŸ™‚ Ha, no way I’d sell knitting, it’s taking me forever to make these and I want to keep them all to myself πŸ˜‰

    Do you have the instructions on any of your sites on how to knit socks? I can’t knit anything but I’ve been wanting to knit socks lately for some reason. (Its winter in Australia.) What’s the difference between yarn and wool? Why can I hear you laughing at me and saying the word ‘noob!’?

      Hi Michelle, sorry for the late reply I have been travelling!
      I’m not laughing at you at all!! Not being a native english speaker I’ve been confused by yarn / wool as well. I’m not really sure but I think they are the same thing, though wool seems to be used more for when the sheep is still wearing it while the word yarn is commonly used to refer to spinned wool. In german we don’t have two separate words, we call everything wool.
      Unfortunately I don’t have instructions on how to knit socks the way I do it. I learned when I was a teenager and now I just sort of wing it. There are loads of patterns and instructions on ravely though, or just look up some youtube tutorials – that’s what I usually do for any knitting stitch or technique that is new to me πŸ™‚
