Me-Made-May'17, the aim is to encourage and wear one handmade garment each day for the month of May. Everything from knickers to gloves with all the other weary things in-between. Whilst I've not knit any knickers, nor would attempt to, I have knit lots of socks and I've been generous to a T and gifted them all. It's all about the socks here at Suffolk Socks . I did publicly admit defeat with the Box of Socks KAL but I think I'd like to give it another bash and see how I get on. Hopefully I'll hang onto my future FOs and see if that box can be filled.
For my next lot of socks, I'm planning on using of Rowan fine Art, 4 ply sock yarn. It is lovely and squishy to knit with, great to wash, hard wearing (in my experience) a good price and has a fabulous range of shades to choose from. Finding the perfect design has been made so easy, I will be using a pattern from 'A Sock Society' by Rachel Coopey. This book has 10 designs, perfect to knit using Rowan Fine art.
Another one of my favourite sock books is called 'Lazy Sundays', 5 simply indulgent beaded (optional) socks to knit by Jane burns. The designs are simply beautiful and can be knit using Fine Art. Whats not to love. This book is light weight and its the perfect size for popping in your project bag.
