I love hand knit socks, especially purple ones. I bought the yarn for these, a wool nylon blend, at Romni Wools when I was visiting Toronto a few months ago. Romni is huge- every time you turn a corner, there’s just more yarn!
The pattern is my favourite basic sock pattern, Amy Swenson’s Universal Toe-Up Sock Pattern. You choose your gauge, needle size, and shoe size, and if you use the Toe-Up Sock Generator, it even does the math for you!
I started the socks on Halloween night and then set them aside for awhile while I finished up some Christmas knitting. I finally knit the other sock (in one day!) on Boxing Day.
