On the Next Episode

Since Alex and I have been a little more busy these last few days or so (well, I've been more busy than usual, Alex somehow juggles a hectic life 24/7) I guess we've taken to posting blog teasers. I wanted to give a little preview of what I'm planning for the next week, provided I learn to juggle this blog, my other blog, and my writing work.

I was cruising through Pinterest searching for inspiration for my next project when I saw this.

I love big, bold socks like this. Sure, the only place to conveniently wear them is at home, but isn't that where they're the most comfortable anyway?

I couldn't find a pattern for this picture, so I'm putting together my own sock tutorial (complete with video!) and pattern, both will be available for free. The tutorial will cover an afterthought heel and a star toe.

So, stay tuned!


  1. I showed my roommate the picture, she shouted FINALLY!!!! Now, I've never made socks, how hard is this going to be??? I'm a bit advanced beginner, have made hats, scarfs, a lace shawl, but never tackled the socks. I'm excited!!!
    Thanks, Marianne

  2. I'm so happy you're excited, Marianne. I am too!

    The series should be perfect for an advanced beginner. I aimed all of the directions at first time sock knitters, so hopefully you'll be able to follow along just fine. :) And of course, if you have questions, I'm always here. :)

  3. I saw this on Pinterest as well. Love it so. I plan on making my own version as well. Can't wait to watch your video!

    1. Thanks! Life on my end has been a little more busy than usual, so I've had to put some tutorials on hold. But they'll be up soon!
