Socks are one of my favorite knitting projects to have on the go. I’ve always got a pair on my needles! They’re incredibly portable, make excellent gifts, and are often a relatively quick knit compared to shawls and sweaters.
Also, with the array of amazingly talented indie-dyers in our fabulous knitting community, you’re able to knit them in any color your heart desires.
Handknit socks are also highly customizable! Once you understand the shape of your feet, you’ll be able to plunk in the heels and toes that fit you best in any pattern you choose – you’ll never want to go back to store-bought socks again!
Are you looking for patterns? You’ll find our sock patterns here.
