A few FO’s

I have been woefully negligent about updating my blog lately and I have a few finished bits to show you.

Gale Socks

Here are Gale Socks – a nice knit, but I had to do a lot of fudging to make the damn things fit as the cables made them […]


I must admit, I’m starting to struggle with this sock challenge.

Oh, don’t get me wrong! I am still loving socks and want to knit the 300+ in my queue, but I miss spinning…..and knitting lace shawls…….and big chunky sweaters!

I don’t have time to do ANY of these; […]

Pair 6

I was excited to start these as they looked like they’d be an interesting knit. Cranberry Biscotti

It wasn’t really – you did a slip stitch (with yarn in front) every 4 rows or so, the rest was just stocking stitch.

But it does look quite pretty! Pattern: Cranberry Biscotti Yarn: The Yarn Yard Toddy […]

Pair 5

Here they are! Glass Slippers

Pattern: Glass Slippers  Yarn: Yarnscape Dance in Icicle Another easy pattern, although I didn’t overly love the way the cables met at the top of the instep. Yarn is gorgeous! It’s 55% superwash BFL and 45% silk so there’s a gorgeous shine to it! […]

Pairs 3 & 4 and a yarn bowl!

I just haven’t been able to get on the computer to blog about pairs 3 and 4 and blogging from the iPad is useless – blogger really need to sort the interface out! Wavy Socks So! Pair 3 were a design I was asked to test knit for Miss Elle and she’s called them Wavy […]

Pair 2

I’ve finished my second of 52 pairs! Aragorn

Pattern: Aragorn Yarn: Knitting Goddess 4ply sock in Onyx These had an unusual construction in that you worked the heel flap along with the gusset increases (which are done right in the centre of the instep/front of leg) THEN you shift all the stitches around so that […]

Socks galore!

Athena ‘Athena’. Pattern by ‘Not An Artist’ which was bought for me by Miss Elle last Christmas. The yarn is ‘Eldritch Voices’ dyed by Wyndwitch. Start Date: 1st January 2011 Finish Date: 8th January 2011 Blackrose


Pattern by Suzi Anvin and is free on KnittyThe yarn is handspun BFL, spun by meeeeeeee!


Oh my god! I finished! I have actually completed the A-Z challenge!

A – Z socks

There were a few moments where I wasn’t actually sure if I would; I got a little bit behind when we went to Italy – especially as one of the pairs was so badly written, I must’ve undone and […]


My name is Sam and I’m a Sockaholic! As you can see, the blog has had a makeover – well, you can if you come here, but if you read through an RSS reader; you won’t notice a change LOL. There is now a second bar down the side – I did want two bars […]

I’m sorry…..

I’m sorry I haven’t been here, I’m sorry I haven’t posted.

Things have just been SO hectic!

I’m still furiously knitting away on the A-Z Sock Chellenge – I’m currently working on my R socks and I’ve also managed to knit Claire a pair of plain socks and last week I knit Kai-Mei socks for […]
