First shipment from my Wollmeise Sock club
|Sock Memme time:|
When did you first learn to knit socks? In January of 2005, I wanted to knit something for my husband.
What’s the first sock you ever knit?January 2005, I made a pair of tube socks for M. I really wanted to knit something for M, but all he wanted was a pair of white cotton tube socks so I used a historical pattern from the 1800's.
Favorite Sock Pattern?It would have to be Jaywalkers, this has become my generic sock pattern.
Favorite needle method? Metal DPN's
Favorite sock needles? Knit Picks US #1’s
How many pairs have you knitted to date? 26 and with 4 on the needles
What is on your sock knitting to-do list?
What kind of socks do you like to knit-
Colorwork?Well, it is on my to do list... But right now it is probably a pipe dream since colour work scares me to death.
Cabled? Yes, cables are one of my favorites
Lace? Yes and no, sometime I think lace socks are kind of silly if they have to many holes. It seems to defeat the reason for wearing socks.
Anklets? I have one pair, but I have never worn them
Knee Socks? I knit a pair for Olga, but I doubt that I would knit them for myself.
Solid colors? For lace and cables only
Bright and crazy? Bright, yes. Crazy, yes. Wild, more the better.
Faux Fair Isle (the yarn doing all of the work)? The pair of anklets that I haven't worn are done with the faux fair Isle. I have kind of mixed feelings about the yarn. I have a few other hanks in the stash. I like the concept behind it.
