I thought it was about time I shared some more of my sock knitting progress with you, following my revelation about the pointy sticks back in November last year. The yarns, oh the yarns!! So many endless stripy possibilities in every colour under the sun, I've developed something of a love affair with these balls of 4ply yarn.
Striping sock yarn is a smidge on the addictive side you know, although so far I have resisted the urge to stash. My first pair of socks pictured above was made from yarn gifted to me for my Birthday, when sock making still seemed very much like something other people did. I've since discovered a whole online world of sock yarn, virtual shelves full of the stuff, so tempting, so desirable, so very, very stash-worthy.
But I promise hand on heart I only bought enough yarn for just one more pair, still very much all under control and absolutely no stashing. Are you impressed by my self control?? Admirable don't you think? I am strong, I can resist! I can look and peruse and drool and sigh I absolutely loved using this yarn. I really got a kick out of watching these clever stripes practically making themselves as I knit round and round and round on my small circular needles. So very, very clever. I wonder if I'll ever lose this sock yarn amazement, it just gets me every time!
With this second pair, I messed up a little bit in that my row counting went slightly awry and one sock ended up shorter than the other. So although I meticulously worked the yarn to ensure perfect matching stripes Christine's explanation for doing this is completely brilliant , my toes ended up a little different to each other. And somehow because of the messed up row counting and resulting mismatched toes, these particular socks ended up just an incy-wincy bit too small for my wide, size 5-but-almost-size-6 feet.
My toes felt squished, and I really cannot bare squished toes. So I decided that I would wash and block the socks and then What a pleasing decision, I was instantly full of the joy of gifting handmade. My heart was full I tell you.
And within the list of Useful Links there was a place to got to where you could download and print some sock wrappers. I used Picmonkey to add a little bit of personalised text to the reverse and felt rather pleased with my attention to detail. I wrapped them up and gave them to my Mum who suffers from very cold feet just like me and had a Birthday in December just before Christmas.
So my needles remained bare and sockless for just a short while, but faced with a 7 hour train journey my trip to Dorset in December I decided to purchase more yarn for my third pair of socks. This time I went for hot colours, as I thought they would look rather snazzy poking out the top of my red Fly London boots which I wear every day. I do still struggle with using the pointy sticks needed to shape the toes, but with each sock it's becoming less fraught and troublesome.
Can't yet say that I enjoy "wrestling with the hedgehog", but at least I can manage to get through it in a relatively calm manner. Now then - do you see my neat little stitch markers in the above picture, the little beady rings nestled amongst my stitches there?

These are a recent discovery which I want to share with you, as I absolutely love them and they are pure joy to use. I found them in a very round about way, the exact ins and outs I can't recall it was one of those lengthy internet journeys where you hop from place to place to place without remembering a thing about it. These gorgeous little markers are designed especially to fit small circular needles, and they are called Mini Ring O's. Sarah is a trained silversmith and jeweller who has created a wonderful reputation for herself designing and making the most beautiful stitch markers for us yarnies.
It was early December when I fell in love with these beauties, and Sarah was right in the thicket of making and fulfilling her Christmas orders. At that time there were no mini ring o's to be found in her shop, but after a few conversations back and forth, Sarah kindly offered to make a set designed especially for me - in full rainbow colour of course! She named them "Lucy's Rainbow" and I was so enchanted by them that I ordered six extra sets so that I could give them to my sock making friends for Christmas.
As you can see from the above picture, these are teeny tiny little rings which slip easily on and off the needles. Because they are very small and smooth, they don't cause any snagging or accidental holes when passing them on your needles and knitting over them.
The different colours mean that you can choose contrasting markers to show up against whatever colour sock yarn you are using, and you can choose two different colours to mark the two decrease points when you shape the gusset. I really do love using them, they are beautiful and practical and I LOVE buying handmade and supporting small businesses. She also messaged me last week to say that she's been busy making some special rainbow spectrum sets inspired by the sets made for me last month, and they should be landing in her shop very soon squeeee!!!!!
So please do keep checking back if you can't find them listed straight away, they will be there very very soon. Sarah is also very good with social media and shares regular news on stock updates via Facebook , Ravelry , Twitter and Instagram. I can't wait. I would love to know if any of you have been inspired to start on your own sock knitting journey and how you're getting on? Are you loving it?
Are you wearing your first pair of socks yet? It's my aim to keep knitting socks in all colours of the rainbow until I have a sock drawer like this Here are some useful links for you if you feel inspired to embark on your very own operationsockdrawer Chistine's Sockalong Tutorials all the help you need with choosing needles, yarn, matching stripes, casting on and knitting.

Super Socks Christine's book. I have to share just one more inspiration picture - a very swoon worthy set of sock drawers I absolutely hate having cold feet and ever since being a child I have suffered with poor circulation and chilly toes. I was cursed with chilblains every winter through my teenage years and the memory of that annual pain and discomfort in my poor toes is rather rotten.
So it goes without saying that I always need my feet to be warm and dry in wintertime and that I also love thick, warm socks, the snugglier the better. I have a whole collection of commercial Snuggle Socks you know, the really fluffy kind that appear in the shops just before Christmas , but I can confirm, through extensive testing and experimentation, that hand knitted socks are in a league of their own when it comes to warmth and comfort for ones feet.
Having my feet snuggled up inside hundreds of little woolly stitches all created by the hands of someone who adores the knitting process is just magic. Hand knitted socks represent hours of creativity, patience and love, and I am convinced that those feelings are embedded in every knitted row and therefore make one's feet feel extra warm and cosy. The socks in the photos above belong to me mine, all mine! Aren't they a bit gorgeous? Do you note that those knitted sock rows are rippling themselves gently up and down, kind of like my crochet ripple blanket?
Well there is a little story behind these socks and the way they came to be nestled on my feet. They were designed and made by Christine Perry who writes a blog called " Winwick Mum ". Now amongst other talents, Christine is a very accomplished knitter, and I'm sure she won't mind me telling you that she is a Sock Knitting Obsessive.
