Sock knitting is a passion for me. I am partial to a heel flap and gusset construction, however there are still some heel types I have yet to try. There is something about a nice gusset that gets to me. I think it’s the structure of it. It’s almost architectural. The clean, straight angled lines make me…*Sigh*
A young woman I follow on Instagram wants to learn to knit socks. From her posts I can see she is a prolific crocheter. If anyone wants to learn to knit socks, my advice is try to find a class at a local yarn store or see if a local knitting guild would be interested in holding a class. I was lucky enough to find a monthly knitting group at my local library that held a sock knitting class.
It was slow going, but I was determined to learn. I am on sock #13 this year and there is still much for me to learn. The first sock pattern I learned was from the book Socks From The Toe Up by Wendy Knits. This book is a wonderful resource. It has several patterns for you to try and keeps you interested and eager to try them all. Her blog is where you can find links for all of her books and several free patterns. Enjoy!
