Podcast 276: Splendid Soles

Spring is well and truly underway for the Knit Picks crew, and with it comes a turning of the knitting year. We’ve finally admitted that any sweaters still in the works will have to wait for next Fall, or we’ve simply tired of large and heavy works. No longer housebound by cruel Winter, we yearn for projects fun and light that we can carry around, basking in the sun while still enjoying our favorite past time. In other words, it’s sock season again! One of our new collections is a celebration of this time, so join us for my review of Splendid Soles, our newest sock pattern book. After that resident sock fanatic Stacey is joined by Hannah to delve into (and argue about) just what is so appealing about sock knitting.

    Ooh, What a great summer project indeed! I’m finishing up a shawl now and was worried I’d be stuck making washcloths all summer because they’re portable. Socks are a great idea! I can practice and hopefully make a few for gifts before the weather gets cold. I’ve never made socks and feel it’s some kind of magic that must happen. Thanks for sharing this blog post and explaining the new pattern collection!

    For me it’s perfect. Just because I’m knitting them now doesn’t mean I have to wear them as soon as they’re done. It’s a small and lightweight project that’s perfect for summer knitting – nothing will spill over my lap or be a heavy bag to drag around.

    I am sorry, but now isn’t the time to really knit socks to wear now. Here in Texas it is already in high 80’s to low 90’s. I am a Southern girl and it is barefoot all the way, except for going out of the house, then it is sandals. So you make me hot to see all these pretty socks. Enjoy your newsletter so much. Stay cool.
