The Joy of SOCKS!😊

I’ve done a lot of knitting and crocheting over the years.

Shawls, blankets, sweaters, gloves,hats…..

I’ve loved every minute of these creative pursuits.

But there is nothing quite like making REAL socks for the first time, for the ultimate knit satisfaction!😊

Unfortunately, many novice knitters in particular are very intimidated by the steps involved in making that first sock.

That’s where a really good how-to sock guide, book, site or video can be invaluable.

Unfortunately, one of my favorite how- to sock guides by Sandra Harris, is NO longer available at Amazon.πŸ˜”

But there ARE plenty of resources out there for the wannabe sock knitter.Β It is a lifelong knitting skill SO worth learning.

 

RAVELRYΒ is a great place to start.

Sign up is free and easy, if you’re not already a member. A fun and worthwhile place to visit, with a multitude of resources, for knitters at all levels.

 

And with πŸŽ„ Christmas πŸŽ„ only weeks away, this is a great time to start thinking about those perfect handmade 🎁🎁.Β
