  • The Secret to Super Speedy (and easy) Sock Knitting

    I hereby announce I have solved all your problems. Okay. Revised. I hereby announce I have solved all your sock-knitting problems. Double okay. That also might be an over statement. But I’m trying, okay? To be completely up front, I’ve barely been knitting socks for a year, which might technically mean I’m not even a …

  • The Camping Socks

    The camping socks are done. They’ve been everywhere. The ocean. The river. The lake. All pretty places. A lot of memories for one pair of socks over the course of the past month. They were a surprise, really. Not on my sock-knitting agenda, at least not until I ran out of yarn and had to …

    My first socks are cruising along. I finished the first one last weekend. They aren’t anything special. Just socks.  Pure and simple. In an average, go-with most-anything color. Socks. Now I am no expert on sock knitting. I have knit only one. A single sock. I still need to weave in the ends. That is how …

  • One Sock Down

       One sock down. The second pair is on the needles. Sock one came out just fine, aside from a little kitchener glitch at the very end.  Total brain malfunction.  I found adjusting the number of stitches from 64 from 52 required more math than the pattern let on. I just hope I can read my …

  • My First Socks

       The Classic Elite Villas yarn giveaway is still live. Check it out here.  For a while now, I have been noticing everyone’s lovely knitted socks. I have never before been a sock knitter. They failed to beckon me. It seemed like a lot of trouble for goofy socks that you have to hand wash …
