Sock Essentials . . . Your Source for Everything Socks!

Click to Sock Essentials
Having fun knitting that heavy wool afghan in the dog days of summer? … I don’t think so!  Socks are my favorite for summer knitting!  Small enough to stuff in your bag and take anywhere, the ankles are easy, while turning the heel will test you on a lazy summer afternoon.  If you like, add pattern work such as cables or some lace work for more of a challenge.

Sean said he was working on the Sock Essentials section of our website.  I guess I knew we had a lot of yarn, kits and other sock supplies … but “Wow!” if you can’t find something here to feed your sock cravings, something is truly wrong!  The Sock Essentials section of the site has everything for you sock junkies.

We have tons of hand-dyed yarns from Mountain Colors, Claudia, Malabrigo, Lorna’s Laces, Araucania … and lots of self-stripers … the list is endless.  Or give your credit card a summer vacation with a great selection of sock yarns on sale!

Did I mention sock kits? We have over 20 different sock kits, some knit from the top-down, some knit from the toe-up!  Choose the intricate, lacy pattern of the Staghorn Lace Sock Kit, the no-frills practicality of the Stockton Sock Kit, or make ‘em short (and fast) with the Summer Shorty Sock Kit.  These smart sock kits also make perfect Christmas gifts!

Also, don’t miss the new Knit-Along (KAL) with Michelle Hunter!  In November, knit Toe-Up Socks Two at a Time ... then in February knit a Two Color Toe-Up pair of socks.  Of course, we will have all the yarn and supplies you need to get in on the fun (and prizes) ... stay tuned!

Run around barefoot this summer, but knit some socks - it’s going be cold this winter!
