0:45 - About Me
My personal knitting history, mostly featuring 80s disasters.

8:55 - On my Needles
I talked about my love of knitting vanilla socks, one at a time, using the magic loop method.
I use a v simple Regia pattern that comes free with the yarn.
I like keeping my sock knitting in one of these adorable Cath Kidston zipper pouches.
Here's a pic of mine:

I also talked about getting one pair of adult + one pair of baby socks out of 100g of sock yarn. So cute:

I am busy updating my projects & stash on Ravelry, where my username is purlhussy.

Finally, I asked for listeners to get in touch with suggestions for vanilla socks worked from the toe-up.
