Have you seen all that delicious sock yarn out there? All those wonderful colours and combinations. I’m not a knitter, on no I’m not. However, I really, REALLY want to knit socks. How hard can it be? I appear to have ordered some knitting tools and some 4ply sock yarn. I’m going to be following Winwick Mum on her knitting blog ~ she did a Sock-a-Long back in May of 2015 and, although that’s long finished, the free [and very comprehensive] advice and step-by-step pattern is still available [see photo above]. There is also a closed group on Facebook for anyone wishing to join me on my sock adventure. Christine [aka Winwick Mum] also has a rather lovely page of free patterns available for those of you who are a few steps ahead of me in the knitting department. It’s all win, win from where I’m sitting.
Update on my crochet socks is that I have one toe left to do and then they’re finished. I’ll place a link to the pattern below. I’ll be interested to see how different it is to knit a pair and how much different they look once finished. Always assuming I do actually finish knitting a pair and don’t succumb to that terrible disease, ‘Single Sock Syndrome’.
Happy hooking and knitting all ~ every blessing!! xx
