2 socks in 1

I really am a sucker for new knitting techniques. And to be honest, there is nothing quite so much fun for me than to try them with my very own handspun yarn. I love a challenge.

During the Tour de Fleece 2010, I won a prize of hand dyed Shetland fibre from Waterloo Wools. Right away I spun it up into sock yarn.

I got out my double point needles and cast on a pair of socks. That's two socks at the same time on the same set of double point needles. How you ask? Well, have a read of this article in

Here they are, finished at long last. They are so comfy that I'm tempted to keep them just for bed socks.

The fibre you'd won turned into really lovely socks! They're beautiful, and I can easily imagine how fabulous they feel on your feet. :)
