Knitting Project - Socks

I like knitting socks - for a number of reasons .....

1)  They knit up fairly quickly.
2)  It is a very portable project ie, I can carry them with me wherever I go.  The needles take up little space and fit into my purse or small bag.  I can knit in waiting rooms, etc.
3)  You can knit on a plane :).   My recent trip took me across the country (over 4500 km) and spent an entire day in airports/two planes/bus and could knit all the way. 
4)  My family likes my hand knit socks and was told that my socks were the only ones that didn't wear out during a planting season.  I have two family members who are tree planters in northern British Columbia during the summer season.

This Christmas I knitted five pairs for family members.    I have an old standby pattern that I have used for years that I know almost by heart now.


  1. Janet they are just beautiful! Would you share the pattern? by the way, since you shared how to keep your Amaryllis bulb, it has been blooming for me for over 5 years now :0) mari

    1. Hi Mari - I would be happy to share the pattern with you. What's the best way to get it to you?
      So glad your Amaryllis is still blooming :)
