.... knitting our socks off.......

Makes a nice change to have some quiet time down here in South West France.  I recently finished knitting a wrap in cashmere and am now busily completing another one using up some old cotton tweed I had.  With the end in sight, I have suddenly been inspired to knit socks and/or slippers with other remnant yarns.  I taught myself to knit simple socks a few years ago and feel it's time to try something a little more complicated as they don't take very long to make and are incredibly satisfying. Here are five patterns that you might find inspiring - some more difficult than others and most free to download (though you may need to register on-site).

We still have a couple of places left on both Patricia Roberts knitting workshop in May, and Marion Foale's in October if you'd like to learn a few techniques and design tricks by the experts.


And on a different subject you might be interested in something a tad more upmarket, but you never know, coming up in April :
