Who can resist sliding into a warm pair of knitted, slouchy socks?
Knitting socks are not really something that I thought I would get into - but once I tried an easy pattern that I got free with some sock yarn, I was hooked!
There's something meditative about creating socks, knitting those rounds and switching your brain off from everything else.
Socks are a great project to take while travelling in the car or on the train, as they need little space and pass the time quite nicely.
Recently I was travelling to Glasgow with my husband to visit some Greek relatives that have relocated and while we watched a movie on the iPad, I happily sat knitting baby socks on my 4mm (US 6) circulars.
Learning how to knit socks is a great way to develop your knitting skills and learn how to shape through increases and decreases.
This can also be a fantastic project for the fall, as you can make knit boot socks or cable knit socks for yourself and all of the family.
*Don't forget to pin and share!*
