I’d like a pair of socks please

Posted in Knitting & Crochet

These words came out of my husband’s mouth a few weeks months ago now. I tell you, you could have knocked me down with a feather!

The thing is, I have never knitted a pair of proper socks before and I have no idea where to start.

The request started off as a pair of walking socks. I was a bit scared of knitting something that would only last a few walks before wearing through at the heels. Therefore the request was then altered to a pair of socks to wear for work….featuring vertical stripes. Erm, no! On so many levels, the answer is no!

We have settled on a pair of socks that can be worn for work on casual Fridays, rather than ‘smart’ days. I therefore need a flat yarn with not too much bulk or fluff. I also need a manly pattern that’s not to tricky to work with!

Have you got any tips for a first time sock knitter? Any great patterns to try out? Have you ever been asked by someone to make something for them that has filled you with fear?
