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.😔
But there ARE plenty of resources out there for the wannabe sock knitter. It is a lifelong knitting skill SO worth learning.
RAVELRY 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 🎄 Christmas 🎄 only weeks away, this is a great time to start thinking about those perfect handmade 🎁🎁.
Socks Made With ❤ Are SO Special!
If you do, stop by My Real Life Reviews to read my new review of this Ebook.
This one is a keeper! 😉
Happy Sock Knitting and Weekend!
I’m still knitting up a storm! 😉
Finished these Guilty Pleasures Socks a couple of weeks ago. They were fun to knit and not too difficult either.
I made them in Patons Stretch Socks yarn in Mineral shade and they took approximately 1.5 skeins to make (this was not the yarn called for in the pattern, that used just one skein in keeping with the theme of this book). They were one size pattern, fit great.
These socks are featured in the book: 101 Designer One Skein Wonders.
Actually a lot nicer in reality than the photos are!
Now that I’ve “aced” the art of sock-knitting, I’m working on my first pair of knit gloves now. Kind of challenge but fun. I’ll share some photos when those are completed too.
Happy Crafting !
