So What Socks?

So now let's think about what type of socks we would like to knit. This is one good thing about being a sock knitter. For winter time you can knit yourself some boot socks and these would require knitting your socks with thicker yarn. Summer socks can be knit using a mixture of bamboo/wool yarn or even a cotton mixture and you could also make them as anklet socks. So that is socks made using different weight yarns and that's not the end of it. You could make bed socks using sports weight yarn.

So let's look at the socks themselves. You can make anklet socks, crew socks or even knee high socks. I've seen knee high socks knit having a big toe knit like a thumb on a glove, these could be knit for someone who likes wearing flip flops. They would also make a great gift, I could see myself gifting a pair of these to a teenager. I have also seen knee highs knit with all the toes like a glove, I've never knit any of these type socks as I don't like the idea of sewing up.

Another thing if you suffer from cold feet then you can knit yourself some bed socks and you can choose the weight of yarn you want to use. This is the great thing about sock knitting. So now all you need to do is think about what type of sock you would like to knit for yourself.

Hope this is helpful. Need help? Contact me.

Happy Knitting
