Sunday’s on the blog is from now on known as Sock Sundays. I will be reviewing sock knitting in its all it’s glory! To kick it off we are doing a sock KAL in honor of my 35th birthday! So come KAL with us for the next two weeks when clues will be revealed on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays until the sock is complete.
In July, I will be teaching at the TKGA Knit and Crochet Show. I will be doing a 3 hour sock intensive that will be taking you on a detailed journey on the anatomy of a sock. I would love to see you there. For more information please visit their website. Anatomy of a Sock
The best part of sock knitting is its portability. You can take socks with you anywhere and it will help make the best out of any extra time you can find. To make mine more portable I use project bags that make my sock conveniently accessible. For the Sprinkle Socks, I am using an Erin Lane Sock Bag (Erin Lane Bags Website) This is the best project bag for this project because of how the yarn is wound. I am using Madeline Tosh Twist Light in the colorway, Star Gazer. The fiber content is 75% Superwash Merino Wool and 25 % Nylon. As per her website (Madeline Tosh), the yarn is a fingering weight yarn with 420 yards per hank. I purchased mine on a recent stash enhancing expedition with my friend Katie at Knitty City in NYC. (Knitty City).
I am knitting my socks using, Addi Turbo 8 inch knitting needles. I call these needles micro circulars as they are super tiny and are perfect to knit socks and sleeves. There are so many methods of sock knitting and I would love to know your favorite. Leave a comment and be entered to win an exclusive Sprinkle Socks KAL prize.
Enjoy your week and KAL.
