Knitted socks

Easy knitted socks

I’ve finished my socks 🙂

Im so happy with how they have turned out, the colors are beautiful and they are so soft, squishy and warm !Easy knitted socksIf you don’t knit, or haven’t in a long time, I’d recommend giving these socks a try. They are relatively easy once you get your head around how they come together, and using a short circular for the majority of the knitting is nothing short of a miracle tool. All your stitches are held together on one needle with two ends, which means less opportunity for dropped stitches.

As I mentioned in the last post, you can find the tutorial I used – which is really excellent – right here. Thanks Christine, I couldn’t have done it without you!

    A fellow Sockalonger! Your socks look great, any plans for your next pair? I’ve knitted 2 pairs with Opal wool and have a growing sock yarn stash – it’s brilliant!

    Oh I love them. Sock knitting is on my to do list! It’s spring here in the UK so feels like the wrong thing to be making but I may just need to get a head start ready for Autumn!!! Love the yarn too x

      You should give it a go, it’s very addictive. There is a Facebook group that accompanies the sock tutorial from Winwick Mum. It’s called the Winwick Mum Sockalong. It’s a great bunch of (mostly) ladies who offer advice if you get stuck. We also share lots if pictures of our finished socks and yarn purchases. Jean

    Lovely! I’m making my first ever pair of socks right now (crocheted – I have yet to learn to knit). They look wonderful. I have a feeling that hand-made socks are going to become regular gifts for Christmas around these parts 🙂 It’s so satisfying to make useful, beautiful things!

    Wanted to do the green doily so hunted for the pattern and then I wanted to poke my eyes with a sharp stick. Who can see this pattern without playing games with the background. Who does this? Think of people with dyslexia.
