Of course now that winter is presumably on it’s way out, I have begun to think about socks. Knitting a pair of socks seems like such a traditional thing to do. When people picture someone knitting it is usually an image of a sweet grandmother clicking away on a pair of socks. This item of knit wear is the last item on my list to knit. I’ve done sweaters, hats, mittens, scarves, cowls, and even blankets but I have never conquered socks. I’ve toyed with the idea but the heel seems so daunting, though it can’t be much more challenging then adding sleeves to a bottom up raglan sweater.
Eventually, I will make a pair of traditional wool socks. Until then here are a few of my favorite patterns. Maybe next winter I will crank some toasty toe warmers out.
