Sitting cuddled up in my granny stripe blanket, watching podcasts and knitting on sock pair 23. Yarn is Cascade Heritage Prints in the Holidaze colourway! Love the progress keepers @fionafaeknitsweet, they make my Christmas socks more Christmas! #socks #socktawk #cascadeyarns #hiyahiyaneedles #knitsweetcharmshoppe

Adding color 17 to my #adventsocks this evening. It's the Boozy Christmas colorway from the lovely @baystreetyarns I can't wait to wear these on Christmas Eve ❄️🎄🎁 • • • • • #handmadewardrobe #operationsockdrawer #socktawk #sockknittersofig #knitting #baystreetyarns #handknitsocks #christmastradition
Sitting back this evening for #instastitchnight and enjoying sipping on my agua de tamarindo while I finish up the cuff of the second sock! I’m also excited that my Christmas shopping is done and everything except a couple of “Santa” gifts 😉 are wrapped. I’ve never, ever been this on top of things. I’m sure I’m forgetting something, but for now I will knit in blissful ignorance. 😂 #knittersofinstagram #knittinglove #knittersofig #socktawk #sockknittersofig #sockknitting
Slow progress, but I did turn a heel this #instastitchnight. Couldn't have lined up the stripes any better if I had tried. #operationsockdrawer #socktawk
I’m the world’s slowest sock knitter so these won’t be done by Christmas but I couldn’t resist casting on. #cozyhome #sockknitter #gingerbreadhouse #knittersofinstagram #thecozyknitter #worldsslowestknitter #slowknitting #christmasknitting #christmassocks #socktawk
I HEAR THEM SLEIGH BELLS JANGLIN Attempting to bring some holiday spirit to grey Denver today! Yarn is @independencestreetyarn in Ugly Sweater 😂😂😂 #knittersofinstagram #boxosoxkal2017 #indieyarn #knitstagram #socktawk
These comfortable socks are off the needles! Pattern is “sugarplum fairy” by the creative Ruth of @knitterarium and the lovely purple yarn is “Trelawney’s Sherry” dyed by the talented Caitlin of @goosey_fibers. Probably the last pair I’ll finish this year. #merrysockkal #knitterarium #gooseyfibers #12socksofchristmas #socktawk #knittersofinstagram

Merry Christmas to myself #grinchalong #operationsockdrawer #socktawk
This is the state of the Christmas wips so far🎄🌟🎄. It isn’t all of them but it’s what I think I can reasonably finish since Christmas is A WEEK away! How did that happen?!? Happy Sunday my friends and happy knitting...➰🎅🏻➰. ** ** ** #knittersofinstagram #socktawk #knitting #knitsocks #knit #operationsockdrawer #christmasknitting #handknit #knitaddict #yarn #theyarnjarshop #strikking #yarnlove #wipsofhappiness #igknitters #sockknitting #knitstagram #nevernotknitting #sockknittersofinstagram #knittersofig
Yesterday I was a knitting machine, played yarn chicken and lost. I’ll decide what to do about that and the heel after the second one is knit. Maybe I’ll finish my gift knitting and then get to start number two today! #lunapurlyarns #handknitsocks #handmadesocks #knitting #knitsocks #buildingmysockempire #boxosoxkal2017 #christmassocks2017 #christmassocks #sockknitting #socktawk #sockknittersofinstagram
Third Sunday of Advent. I’m using this lovely candy stripe for the cuffs, and I’m going to put in plain red heels (WYS Cherry Drop) 💙❤️🧡💚💜🎄
Attempt 2 on opening weekend. At least at this theatre ads are playing. Bag by @1sockwonder yarn by @muststashsheep #maytheforceknitwithyou #operationsockdrawer #socktawk #movieknitting
Okee. Here is the deal. Every day, starting today until Christmas day I will decrease the prize of at least 1 or more handmade item(s) in the shop. Some of these items will not be made again. Just saying. Today, these four medium sized project bags are the same prize as a small sized one. Tell your friends (or not if you want them for yourself). Stay tuned for a few days... #gratitudetoallmycustomers #thankyoucustomers #linkinprofile #knitting #knittersofinstagram #knittersoftheworld #knittingprojectbag #sockknitting #sockknittersofinstagram #socktawk #projectbag #projectknittingbag #lowlandoriginalsdotetsydotcom #lowlandoriginals #crochet #crochetprojectbag #socksack #sockknittingbag #drawstringbag #zipperedbag #zipperedprojectbag #zipperedknittingbag #shawlknitting #hatknitting
So close to the toe!!! Actually managed to get in a few rows yesterday🙌 and that was all the knitting I was able to sneak in all week🙈 I love this time of year, but sometimes wish everything would slow down💕 #12soc2017 #brightestknitsforthedarkestdays #myknestiesaremakingmefinishmywips #myknestiesmademedoit #socktawk #nevernotknitting #knittersofig #knittersoftheworld #sockknitter #sockknittersoftheworld #socknittingninja #sockknittersofinstagram #knittersgonnaknitknitknitknitknit #knit #handknitsocks #knitting #knitnerd #coffeeandyarn #coffeeandknitting #coffee
Dearest knitters, my lovely friend Margot @margotrosen has amazing photographs in her instagram page. I was looking and them and I adored one of the pictures. I commented and said it is a very inspiring picture. I asked her permission and wanted to knit a sock by inspiring that photo. She kindly did let me to do it and while I was knitting that sock, she sent me this picture. ( With her own words: the reflective of lava fields, mosses and the lupins.... 'İcelandic summer -life in the shadow of volcano-' Such a talented photography artist and such a poetic description. ...... ı immediately started to knit the second sock . Then I thought, I can make those two socks with matching cuffs and make them pair.... ı looked at her photographs and I found a sunrise photograph and I also found a simular yarn in my stash. I asked her opinion. She loved that idea too. Now, this is the first sock of the pair and I will share the second sock just after this one. It was not an easy thing to knit these socks because of hard work of finding the colors and fading them etc.... but I loooooved the result. She sent me more pictures and I wanted to knit more socks based on those photographs. She travels a lot! She said this is 'the world of travel series socks' . Yessssss, hold on friends..... more socks are coming! Thank you very very very much Margot..... you are such a talented and fantastic soul. .... #socksofinstagram #sockknittersofinstagram #sockknitting #sock #socks #sockyarn #sockknittingaddict #sockknitter #sockknitters #sockaddict #socktawk #knittingfriends #knittersofinstagram #knitsharelove #knittedsocks @flowers"># @flowers #volcano #iceland #purple #operationsockdrawer #handknitsocks #knitsharelove #handmadesocks #holidaysocks #holidayyarns #festivesocks #strikk #stricken #sockenstricken #sockenwolle #sokkestrikk #festivesockalong
This lovely fellow is going to live with my sister, to become a pair of socks. #socktawk #handdyedyarn #indiedyers
In case you needed a reason to make notes on all your sock projects (especially sock projects that will take a hiatus)... yes, two different heel turns with different gusset decreases. No, I will not frog it. Thankfully they're socks for me and my feet can't tell the difference. #sockknittersofinstagram #socktawk #knitting #knittersofinstagram #vanillasocks
I can get these done by my family’s first Christmas celebration if I knit at least 4 stripes per day. Challenge accepted. #lunapurlyarns #christmassocks #handknitsocks #sockknitting #buildingmysockempire #sockknittersofinstagram #boxosoxkal2017 #socktawk #selfstripingyarn #selfishknitter #stripessocks
So after binding these off, finding that the bind off was way too tight, undoing the bind off and redoing the bind off......ugh.....my first Christmas sock is finally complete :-D

#socktawk #sockknitter #socks First Try got to tight.. Its for a friend but we have the same size calf sooooo nope no way.. But I'm not ripping out. Just putting them on hold while I make the new ...
#Repost @yoriko.oki ・・・ Tomorrow’s featured yarn is undyed sock blank. . Have you knit with sock blanks before? Some people asked me how to use it. It’s simple. You unravel it as you knit. Some people don’t like the kinks in the yarn, so they wind the yarn into a skein first, steam it to get rid of kinks, then cake it again to knit. It’s up to you. . You could buy commercially made sock blanks, but I make mine on a knitting machine. And here is why. All commercial sock blanks are knit too tight for dyes to penetrate through. So, you end up with more white sections of yarn than you want. And kinks are tighter when you unravel it. Also, all commercial sock blanks are made single stranded. I make mine double stranded so you can knit matching pair of socks, two at a time. . It’s just a sock blank, but a lot of thinking went into it. 😉 . If you want to try dyeing your own sock blank, here is an opportunity. Undyed sock blanks will be 10% off tomorrow, December 16.

The house may not be decorated yet (except for Christmas cards we’ve received), but at least what’s on my needles is festive. :) #hippoforholidays #lolodidit #socktawk #hippoforchristmas
Rolled up these 2 stripey balls today. They just need mini's and then they will be up in the shop. On the right is Mermaid Socks and on the left is my first attempt at a colourway called Sexy Man Stripes. I'm not sure the final incarnation of this colourway will be the same but I really love the concept and the colours so far. Happy Friday everyone! . . . . . #mermaid #sockknitting #sockknitter #mansocks #makersgonnamake #knitknitknit #socktawk #knitallthesocks #knittingiscool #knittingismyyoga
My evening includes knitting, a cozy fireplace, movies and pajamas. What four things describe your plans? #holidayknitting #socktawk #operationsockdrawer
These socks are for a special someone and I’m green with envy. 💚 Maybe there will be leftovers for a second pair?🤞Made with Biscotte Yarns in the Knight colorway.
This is my first time knitting socks with a Christmas yarn. WYS in the Candy Cane colourway. It’s making me feel super festive! #christmassocks #christmasknitting #candycane #wys #knitbritish #socktawk
One sock is DONE!! Look at those mini stripes!! I love it! Of course, it doesn't quite fit my wonky foot, so a gift it shall be. :) Next pair, maybe CO68 stitches, and a much deeper heel. Any hints for deep heels?

When you have an almost two year old and a three month old and you are trying to knit the toe on a stocking when they are both up you accidentally knit the toe decreases on the wrong needles. #toolate #notfroggingit #knit #knitting #knittersofinstagram #stockings #christmas #cabled #custom #handmade #children #etsy #love #festive #socktawk #freeallthehouseelveskal
