It’s Spring! It’s time to shake off the winter blues, crawl out of hibernation and put away the big heavy blanket knitting. Socks are great to work on when the weather warms up. Let me help inspire you to try out that sock loom you bought when it was on sale but have been too intimidated to use. I’ve got a Sock Loom Basics Book Giveaway just for you.
Details to enter are below, but first I want to tell why socks are the perfect spring and summer project.
- They’re small! Small projects are easy to tuck into your beach bag beside your sunscreen and towel.
- They are easier to loom knit than you think. (Did I mention my tutorial on customizing sock patterns yet?)
- There are few things in this world more satisfying than the feel of your own hand knit socks cuddling your toes. Trust me on this!

If you saw my recent post on How to Loom Knit Socks That Fit you saw me adapt the Horizontal Rib Tippy Toes pattern to use a different loom and yarn. That’s the beauty of socks, you can take a single pattern and adjust it to give you a perfect fit. I know you’re going to love the patterns in the book as much as I do.
