Brand new socks for a brand new year (Once upon a sock edition)

Although technically I finally finished these last year (actually, on New Year’s Eve). It took me a solid six weeks to get around to kitchenering the under-toe of the second sock, too, which could be a new record. But here they are, a fully-finished pair of Afternoon Tea socks! Very possibly my prettiest socks to…

Once upon a sock in November 2018 – yikes!

Yikes for more than one reason, too. Firstly, how on earth is it November already? Secondly, I’ve not blogged for a while and I have MISSED you guys! And thirdly I don’t have all that much sock progress to show you, though I do have some little bits and pieces of sock-related news. First off,…

Once upon a sock in Aug 18 – Fibre East and ankle socks

Well hello there,  first-Thursday-in-August, you sprung up entirely out of nowhere didn’t you? I saw Paula and Steph posting this morning and genuinely thought they’d got the date wrong, until I actually looked at a calendar. ANYWAY, here I am too! Remember last month when I didn’t have any new socks on the needles? You…

Once upon a sock in July 2018 – no socks!

I mean, not actually no socks, because that is pretty much inconceivable. It’s not that dramatic, I finished these in June. a) I love them with all my heart, and b) they are being test knit as I type. Feeling a lot of love for my amazing test knitters right now for working on colourwork…

Once upon a sock in June 18 – actually all about socks

Hey lovely readers, I’m sorry I’ve been neglecting you a bit. Happily today is the first Thursday of the month, which means I owe you a sock update – and I have LOTS to show you because it’s been all socks, all the time round here lately. First off, for those who missed my last…

Once upon a sock in May 18 – finding my fair-isle way

The felinity fair-isle socks (I need a much better name than that!) are moving along pretty nicely. Sock one is in the bag*, and sock two’s past the heel. I’ve worked out how to move the jog to the other side for the leg, and am just thinking about how to handle it in the…

Once upon a sock in April 18 – rainbow dreams

Hello, sock-knitters and other interested parties. How’re you? The sun is out today in London and it is glorious. It is also that time of the month where I owe you all a sock update. Reporting on progress will be short but sweet because look! I have finished my latest helical socks. But oh! I…

Once upon a sock in March 18 – sooo many ankle socks

I have been knitting my little socks off this month (DID YOU SEE WHAT I DID THERE, KIDS) – once the Borage socks were done it has all been about getting those two pairs of ankle socks knitted up as samples in time for Travelknitter to take to Edinburgh later this month. And… I am…

Once upon a sock in Feb 18 – flowers and hat

Whoops! I was all set to post on schedule yesterday, and then (believe it or not) I got distracted by work and before I realised it it was too late for me to photograph my first finished sock from my current pair. Anyway, sorry for being a day late, but look! My first Borage sock…

Once upon a sock in Jan 18 – plans plans plans

Hello sock fans (sockettes?). I would love to show you some exciting sock progress today. However what with my flurry of recent finished projects I don’t actually have any new socks on the go just yet (the Twisted Soul socks are the only ones on the needles, but they haven’t changed since the end of…
