The Stripes Make It Warmer

by Katie on 5th April, 2014

The other day, I pulled on my second pair of handmade socks and realised something very important: I need to make more socks.  Many more socks.

So I set about doing just that.  In the space of a week, I have turned one ball of somewhat brightly-coloured wool into a lovely warm sock (which, alas, has been rendered irrelevant by a sudden pocket of warm weather).  It all went down a little like this:

Evolution of a Sock

Socks are brilliant things to make as they require very little attention apart from a couple of pivotal points.  And they’re such satisfying items of clothing to create.  There are few things as good as pulling on a pair of cosy warm socks that you made yourself.

The second sock is well under way now, so all I need is for the weather to turn cold and I will have the brightest feet around.

See these socks on Ravelry.

BEST COLOURS!! I can’t believe you made them! They look so complicated!! Love them xx

The best thing about making socks is that it’s roughly 95% easy fun times 5% tricky bits. I can’t wait until I’m done with the second sock and can start wearing them properly.
