Knitting Socks

During the wonderful Indieburgh Yarn Crawl in Edinburgh this June, I attended a class to learn to knit using Magic Loop.  The class, taught by the talented Clare Devine, was so fantastic that I soon picked up the technique.

The next step was to knit a sock! Using Clare’s beautifully illustrated pattern book, “Sock Anatomy”, I started my first proper sock.  The Flexor pattern was quick and very easy to follow: a pair of hiking socks flew off my needles followed by a nearly completed “Mind The Gap” pair.

Having thought that I would never be a sock knitter, I’m now a bit of an addict and my yarn stash seems to have expanded surreptitiously with a variety of sock yarns awaiting their turn!

E-Shop

At last I have got my E-Shop up and running!  I can now sell my unique project bags online. The small versions of these bags are currently available on the shop but I’ll be adding other products over the next few weeks.  A link to my shop can be found in the Menu bar at the top of the page, on the sidebar (if viewing on a desktop computer), or at the foot of the page (if viewing on a mobile device) in “Links”.
