Pattern: How I Make My Socks, by Susan B. Anderson

Yarn: Schoppel-Wolle Zauberball; Colourway: Frische

I haven’t really been a big sock knitter. I know there are lots of you out there! The last pair I made were for my daughter.

About a month ago, I decided to see what the hype was about and I cast on a pair. Now I have to say, I’m slightly addicted. There’s something to be said about making a pair, trying it on my feet as I go along, and seeing the final fit. The other part that I love is the colour variations. I love interesting colour patterns and variations, and with sock yarns there is no shortage of both!

Now that I am more than a little hooked, I’ve decided to challenge myself to make a year’s worth of socks (12 pairs to be exact)!

Let’s see how it goes. I hope you will follow along with me. You can read about my progress on this blog, or follow along on with my project on Instagram.
