Sock knitting is relaxing for a lazy Saturday morning, and what a great idea for gifting to those special people on your Christmas list! Here are more sock knitting patterns from our Etsy and Ravelry shops to add to your pattern library….
I really enjoy knitting socks! It’s a great project to carry in my purse for those times when I find myself waiting for an appointment; I can pull it out and work on a few rounds, and it takes my mind off the wait!

I have spent the free time that I had this weekend making some accessories for the low temps that have arrived.
On Friday, I mentioned I’d be working in an ear warmer using a pattern from Paton. Well, I decided that I would just go back to the tried and true Calorimetry by Kathryn Schoendorf. This pattern is very easy to knit, and a good introduction to short rows to the new knitter. Click on the picture below to find the pattern on Ravelry:

I enjoy listening to Bible studies on my phone while I walk, because it helps my mind go to another place while my legs are protesting the vigorous walk! So, I needed fingerless gloves be able to use my phone conveniently. I wanted them to be quick, and since I am a much faster crocheter than knitter, I found these quick and easy Simple Handwarmers by Jennifer Edwards. One reason why I picked this pattern is that with double crochets, they are flexible and comfortable, not stiff as single crochets would make them.

After some late-night crocheting, the next baby afghan pattern headed for my Etsy and Ravelry shops is finally finished, and pinned to the blocking board!
I will try to get the pattern published no later than Monday evening, so stay tuned!

While the afghan is blocking, I think I’ll get out my knitting needles and make an ear warmer for the below-freezing temps that are coming. I have renewed my resolve to walk for exercise every day, especially since the summer heat is gone, and I don’t want the cold to stop me! I’m not looking for anything fancy this time – just fast – so I think I’ll use this pattern from Patons:
I’ll post a picture when it’s finished!
