Keeping Sockupied

Gosh, I haven’t knitted anything in a while. What better way to get my knitting mojo back than to whip up a pair of socks?

I have a confession to make. One would think that someone that has spun countless 4oz skeins of yarn would have made a gazillion pairs of socks by now. Nope. Not me. Master of None. I have a tendency to move on after I figure out a new technique.

Although I know how to make socks and have lots of yarn; my hand knit sock collection consists of 2 pairs of socks. One pair knit from the top down and another pair knit from the toe up. One turned heel and one short-row heel. They were knit from commercial yarn, not even handspun. No tomatoes please. I promise I’ll do better.

My first pair of hand knit socks ever.

After 7 years, I finally finished another pair of socks.
