One of my crafty resolutions for this year was to knit a pair of socks. And lo & behold, I’ve done it.

Hand knitted socks

These were really quite easy to do. They weren’t knitted in the round so had to be sewn up so will mainly wear indoors when it’s chilly. I used the sock pattern from ‘Love…Knitting‘ By Val Pierce. I used Patons Colour Works Aran wool as I had received some from my OH’s mum for Christmas. I love the way the wool gives a graduated colour. Each sock used almost all a 50g ball.

I now want to knit a pair of socks in the round so have found a pattern, bought new DPN’s and am ready to start, once I’ve completed two mini-projects!

Have you knitted socks? What are your favourite patterns? x

  1. Thanks! I was really nervous about making socks especially as so many patterns looked so complicated. That’s why I went for these ones on straight needles. It made the whole idea of knitting a heel so much easier to deal with!

  2. Wow, I love that blue! I’m still too scared to knit socks despite everyone’s assurances that they are easy so bow before your bravery 🙂
