I Wanna Knit Socks – Yarn Give-A-Way

I want to knit socks…I want to knit socks all during February.  Maybe even during March.  Not just the two pairs that are lanquishing in little project bags on a corner of my counter.  I wan to knit Fun Socks.  Your favorite socks.

So…I’m having a Yarn-Give-A-Way.  Two Skeins of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock Yarn in Ysolda Red.  Each skein is approximately 215 yards.  Enough to make your own pair of socks.  And red for Valentine’s Day!

How do you enter?  Just a leave a comment below and tell me about your favorite (knitted) sock pattern and where I can find it.  Leave as many different comments as you like.  I will use a random number generator to decide the winner.  All entries must be submitted by January 31st at 11:59 pm.  I’ll announce the winner on February 1st!

I’m looking forward to hearing about your favorite sock patterns!

  1. I received KnitPicks sock a month kit as a gift a few years ago. I just finished my first sock from them, the Heart Socks. I love it. What kept me form doing it is I could not figure out toe up socks. Now I can and I am now going to make all the patterns.

  2. Here's the deal. I want to love socks. but I do not have any good sock yarn. I have knit up a few pairs of socks, and no matter how small my needles my socks come out too thin….But as soon as I find a pattern I will let you know! Then again… That yarn sure is pretty!:)

  3. I love some baby cabled rib socks I made for my mom. I think they showed off the yarn great, and they were super stretchy for her. Also the rib is just crossing one stitch so you don't need a cable needle. Super easy to memorize. Only downside is the pattern is in a book… Here are my socks http://www.ravelry.com/projects/kristinaknits/baby-cable-rib and here is the link to the pattern on Ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/baby-cable-rib The book is Sensational Knitted Socks.

  4. Favorite sock pattern… it's difficult to choose one, honestly! I think the pattern I've knit most frequently is Cookie A.'s Monkey, but I do knit a lot of plain 2×2 ribbed socks as well – they're fast, mindless, and they're not too heavily patterned for the husband's taste.

  5. Gosh, I have a number of favorites! Here's a lesser-known one: Stashbuster Spirals, from the Six Sox knitalong group on yahoo groups. You can find a link to it on my project page on Ravelry (where I'm infiknits, sorry to not link, I'm on my smartphone and it's a pain!). Actually, that knitalong had some fun ones when it started. It continued long past six, I think, but I did not. There were also Fluted Bannisters, which were nice, and Cloverleafs.

  6. This is by far my favorite pattern :)http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/jaywalkerThey look like they would be really difficult to make, yet they are super simple!

  7. this is a really generous offer. I'm having a hard time selecting my favorite socks. there are so many nice patterns out there these days. Ann budd's Diagonal Cross Rib Socks are in my queue http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/diagonal-cross-rib-socksin fact, I've got lots of sock yarn and created my own tag on Ravelry for sockclub which yells me socks that would be great for my own sock club. http://www.ravelry.com/people/knittingbrow/favorites?q=sockclub&view=
