4 years ago I decided that I was going to knit myself a pair of socks. Fast forward 3 years to Lockdown 1.0 and the half a sock that was languishing in my WIP pile made an appearance and before you know it, I had a sock. The second one only took 3 weeks to make and lo and behold, I had a pair! I used the Basic Sock pattern from Winwick Mum which is great for beginners. She also has a loads of photos and a great, easy to follow tutorial on her website that makes knitting a pair of socks a breeze.
I am hooked and have completed 4 pairs so far and have amassed quite a stash of sock yarn. If you have ever thought about knitting socks for yourself, I recommend giving it a go! There is something quite satisfying about pulling your woolly creations onto your feet.
