one of my 2011 resolutions was to knit a pair of socks, and i totally failed. i jumped straight into trying to knit a pair of turkish socks and got bored about half way through the first one- too much colour changing!
i haven't knit anything in ages now, and thought i should really give socks another chance. i'm using scrap yarn so it doesn't matter too much if i go wrong, and the easiest pattern i could find amongst all my books- these slouchy socks are from "love to knit socks" by bronwyn lowenthal of lowie.
now i know i might sound biased because my first internship was with lowie, but i genuinely love all of bronwyn's books- the patterns are all amazing and easy to follow as well.
coincidently, lowie have just announced their summer sale, (click here to see it) and if i could own basically everything from the spring/summer collection, i would be one happy knitted girl!
if anyone has any tips for knitting socks then i'd love to hear them- are they worth it? and how do you keep your motivation when sock number one is finished & you have to start all over again for the second!?
