Yes its all about socks, I love hand knitted socks, they are warm and cosy, hard wearing and fun.
I have always knitted socks on the round using double ended needles, when I was visiting a friend the other month she showed me some socks she had just finished and they were knitted on the straight, intrigued I ordered the book she had knitted them from and got started with a pair last night
I am knitting them in King Cole Riot, its some yarn I had left over from another project.
While browsing on Amazon for the book I came across another 3 sock books that I just had to have
I will have to give crochet socks a go there is some really interesting designs in these books.
Back to knitting socks on the straight, the instructions are very clear and easy to follow, and the book is spiral bound great for staying open were you want it, there is some lovely designs in the book and some great tips on joining seams.
Right must get back to finishing my socks.
