sock fever

On Tuesday 9th July I’m hosting a drop-in sock session at John Lewis in Milton Keynes. I’m really excited because I love knitting socks and it will be a treat to be on the shop floor sharing the sock love with everyone!

As you may have seen, I knitted my first skein of Rowan Fine Art into a Hitchhiker scarf. I love it but it left me wanting for a pair of socks in that yarn, as had been intended. The colour distracted me. That is the only explanation I can think of in hindsight. Anyway, I have since procured a skein each of the dark purple and the green.

The purple one has been turned, so far, into one vanilla sock with a reinforced heel. The toe is ungrafted for demonstration purposes ( she says :-) and the green skein is on its was to being Bunting socks from the Rowan Fine Art book.

So if you are in the Milton Keynes area on Tuesday come and have a mooch at the socks, have a go if you like, learn something new – maybe magic loop, all for free!

Happy Sock Knitting!
