Fiber LOVE! And my search for an easy thigh-high sock pattern.

This is what I’m writing about tonight. You’ll be able to read all about it in The Grand Rapids Press next Sunday. Doesn’t this luscious roving make you want to drop everything and spin some lovely sock yarn? Me too!

Speaking of socks… I’m looking for an easy thigh-high sock pattern that I can knit on the sidelines at soccer games and at swim lessons. Any suggestions? It’s hot and humid here in Michigan and I had two unexplained hot flashes this afternoon (WTH?!), but that hasn’t stopped me from scoping out fall knitting projects. Oh, and it case you were wondering, the socks are for me. : ) Here’s an easy leg warmer pattern that I plan to try, but I’m still searching for the perfect super tall sock pattern that I can stitch with sock yarn.

Okay, I must get back to work… Just a few days to get everything done before I leave for the Conference for Creative Entrepreneurs in Seattle. Are you going?

P.S. I’m working to kick out the next podcast before my trip and there’s still time to become an episode sponsor. Email sponsors@craftsanity.com if you’re interested.

This pattern doesn’t look too bad. http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTverytallsocks.html

Thanks, Julianne. Those qualify as very tall socks indeed.

I would love to see how the tall socks come out. I am a beginner and thigh high socks is the only thing i want to knit. Im not sure if circular or dpn’s are best and how much yarn i need if Im only making these stockings in a single colour. Thank you if you could make a post about it or email me with any tips :)
