When I say I love knitting socks, I mean it. My first pattern booklet was sock patterns, and I’ve written many additional sock booklets and single patterns. When my children were growing up, I always had a sock on the needles stashed in my minivan so I always had something to work on while waiting for the activity-of-the-hour to be finished. That’s why I was thrilled when I discovered Annie’s Love to Knit Socks Club.
Annie’s Love to Knit Socks Kit Club is a monthly subscription of delicious, hand-dyed sock yarn and a pattern chosen to show off the yarn. The wool-blend yarn is perfect for making comfortable socks, and the patterns are easy to follow. The patterns are written using different styles, so you’ll learn new skills as you make each new pair. Plus, each pattern has online video tutorials to walk you through any tricky instructions.
Simply Sweet Socks
The socks I’m knitting are called Simply Sweet, with a 2×2 ribbed cuff and stockinette stitch heel and foot. They are perfect for first-time sock knitters. But even though I’ve been knitting socks for years (um, decades), I never tire of knitting “plain vanilla” socks like these. The soothing rhythm of k2, p2 rib and rounds and rounds of knit stitch become a meditation. The pattern is written for double-pointed needles, but although I started with double-points, I switched to my preferred Magic Loop method after a few inches. (You do you!)
The yarn in this kit is a cheery spring-like colorway in from Shirsty Cat Designs. It’s a fingering weight blend of 75% superwash merino and 25% nylon, so it should wash nicely. And it has been very easy to knit with. I’ve made good progress on my first pair, with one sock complete and the heel flap started on the second. I can’t wait to finish this pair and start a new one!
