SocktoberFest

It’s all about socks for the month of October here at Dublin Knit Collective HQ.

Knitting socks is my favourite on the go project. A sock wip easily fits in your bag and can be knit just about anywhere.

I learned how to knit socks at my local stitch ‘n bitch in 2006 since I was in awe of the handknit socks the knitters were wearing each week. I began by knitting along with the other sock knitters, however, turning the heel was a mystery to me until my eureka moment…

I read Knitting Rules! by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. Knitting socks made sense and it all came together after reading the sock chapter.

The Yarn Harlot’s Basic Sock Recipe is the most used sock pattern here at DKC HQ.

I am taking this month to celebrate P/hop SocktoberFest. Donate and download any P/hop sock pattern

Wearing your handknit socks make for happy feet.
