I adore knitting socks... my favorite kind of project. LOVE all of your choices... you can not go wrong with a self striping sock yarn... Enjoy!


I'm sorry to hear that you're in a funkity-funk-funk! (Though, not surprising after knitting that many swatches.) Please know, that you're book is fantastic and will be a valuable resource for many knitters for years to come.

It's always good to have one of those projects on the go that you can just pick up and simply get straight into knitting, without much mental effort.

Dishcloths (and more recently tea towels) are my personal favourite. Socks are probably going to become a favourite in the future though.

I hope the funk-a-dunk passes soon.


Weaving scarves with sock yarn mixed with other yarns is a ton of fun too.

happy to see you posting again on your blog spot. sock knitting is everything you say plus someone receives a treasured wearable. Especially with the machine washable yarns. The changing colors and patterns are so enjoyable to knit without any decisions needed. Best of all worlds. Welcome back

I only want to knit socks these days as well.mthey are good therapy!


Nice to see you. Hoping you all have a nice Thanksgiving!


Just wanted to tell you how much I love your book Custom Knits! I've been knitting for a few years and have come across many of your patterns from that book over the years (they're all in my queue actually!). I found your book at the library and have been actually READING it, not just looking at the patterns. Your style and ease of explanation are fantastic! I love the book so much I decided to buy it! I hope you make more just like this book, I love how you give options and ways to change up patterns... I always find something and think "I'd really like that if the collar were different" or "if it were only off the shoulder!" Thank you for the book, it's now my favorite! You've inspired me with hope that I too could potentially design my knitting to fit me :).


I've pre-ordered your next book and I can hardly wait for it to arrive! Also, I love knitting socks also. When I finally was able to learn how to knit them, it was an incredibly fun experience!!!


9.5 Im just saying , my feet are cold :)


There are way worse ways to deal with the funkity funk funk. Great socks!
