A Knitter's Meme

A Knitter's Meme

When did you first learn to knit socks?
I think it was about 8 years ago, sadly my memory is foggy.

What’s the first sock you ever knit?
I learned and pretty much have only knitted one sock pattern, other than once. This year I hope to expand on this.

Favorite Sock Pattern?


Favorite needle method?
So far all I know is the top ( at the cuff) down ( to the toe)method. I want to learn how to go from the toe up and also I want to learn how to knit two socks at the same time on circular needles too. All in time I keep telling myself.

Favorite sock needles?
5 double pointed needles made in bamboo.

Who do you knit socks for?
My hubby, sons, MIL, DIL, sometimes other family members too, plus ME. [o=

How many pairs have you knitted to date?
I really don't know I have lost count and never thought to keep count, lol.

What is on your sock knitting to-do list?
Ohhh I have a basket full of yarn to knit socks for hubby and my 3 boys at home, my MIL, and myself. I will be knitting socks for awhile now. I hope to interrupt it with a cardigan or two too.

What kind of socks to you like to knit-

Color work?
haven't tried yet.

Plain Stockinette?

Want to so bad!

Yes, I am in the midst of making me a pair right now.

Ohhh yes. It is a great way to get more socks out of a ball of yarn. The tightwad comes out on this one. [o=

Knee Socks?
I am hoping to make some in the new year.

Solid colors?

Bright and crazy?

Faux Fair Isle (the yarn doing all of the work)?
Ohhh I want to try these REAL soon.

Tag a few sock knitters here: I really don't know who knits socks out there so if you do consider yourself tagged and let me know if you did the tag.


  1. You know...I've knitted for years and years but have never knitted a pair of socks. Hmmm, I guess it's something I could try over the winter. Do you know of an easy pattern to try?


  2. Pretty colors on the needles. I have never knit socks, don't know if I ever will.... Do you find that they are durable and long-lasting? I think that's what keeps me away from wanting to knit socks because if I wore out the heel quickly (for example) it would seem like a lot of knitting effort gone to waste.


  3. I think it will be a while before I get to socks, LOL! But I love yours, the colors are so fun!

    Blessings and {{{HUGS}}},

  4. I tried the socks Mary...but gave up when I reached the heel :(

    I really like your knitting bag :)



  5. I finally have a book on crocheting socks, I can't wait to try a pair. But first I need to finish a scarf I'm making for Paul. Love the sock the you are working on in your picture. :)

  6. Knitting socks scares me, but I LOVE the beautiful patterns out there. Maybe I just collect sock patterns :o). Are you on Ravelry? I'm sure there are lots on there. I haven't checked as I haven't been able to get anything really going on my needles lately.


  7. I am amazed!! I use the kniffty Knitter loom but that is as far as I go into the knitting world I am terrible at it.......my Nonna tried to teach me she knit beautiful clothes and booties for all my kids when they were babies....Happy Knitting enjoy your sox :) Love Heather

  9. I am quite jealous. I can't get my head wrapped around knitting to save my neck. Very beautiful work!

  10. Just dropping in real quick to say I'm glad to see you working your needles. :) Socks? I enjoy knitting them but haven't made any for quite some time. Looking forward to catching up next week!

    Blessings, ~Lisa :)
