Want to learn how to knit socks?

Back in March I spent a few weeks on and off working on my 1st pair of socks and quickly  moved on to my 2nd pair!  For a few weeks I was totally addicted to socks and knitted a few pairs, one plain navy blue pair for payment for some joinery work, one stripy pair for a friend and a lovely snugly woolly pair for my cold feet (once the sun goes in they are instantly cold, brrrr). I always have a pair of socks on the go, stashed away in the glove compartment in the motor home so I can knit on my travels. 

Because I have just started to knit socks I thought I would turn my learning experience in to a selling point and create a sock knitting kit for the novice sock knitter, someone that likes knitting like me, has quite a bit of experience but has never tried knitting on double pointed needles, never mind tried all the techniques associated with sock knitting. 

Here's a snapshot of some of the techniques covered in full in my instructions.

Come along and try out the kit, its only £11 plus postage and that includes full instructions, 2 skeins of Aran yarn (approx 70 grams per skein) and the double pointed needles too. Some lovely colours to choose from. Great for you or buy for a friend. 


  1. I'm knitting socks at the moment, it's been a real challenge as I've only just learnt to knit. I'm enjoying the challenge.

  2. I've never knitted socks, although I did do booties once and they nearly matched ;) I love how you knitted a pair in exchange for some work done for you - wool as a currency is wonderful :)
