A Sock Meme   Leave a comment

When did you first learn to knit socks?

I’d say about 1 1/2 years ago by watching a video, but I really grasped the concept of socks and how they work about 5 1/2 months ago at The Spring Fling when I took a class with Wendy Johnson.

What’s the first sock you ever knit?

The first socks that I knit were with Lorna’s Laces in the Jungle Stripe colorway. They were knit two at a time from the top down, plain stockinette. They are about 2 sizes too big, but I still wear them to this day.

Favorite Sock Pattern?

I have too many to choose just one and typically it’s what ever I am working on at the moment.

Favorite needle method?

Two Circular

Favorite sock needles?

Knit Picks Circulars in the Options line

Who do you knit socks for?

How many pairs have you knitted to date?

What is on your sock knitting to-do list?

Colorwork? I haven’t tried yet, but I’m not ruling it out either

Plain Stockinette? When I need brainless knitting, yes

Cabled? Absolutely

Lace? Yes, Yes, Yes

Anklets? I have, I like short socks

Knee Socks? Not in a million years

Solid colors? Yes, especially when I want a pattern to “pop”

Bright and crazy? sometimes
