Nothing But Knit has shared another fun quiz and this time it’s all about socks! Join me for “Socks: A Quiz“
Do you knit/crochet socks?
Yes, I knit micro-preemie socks, but haven’t managed an adult sock yet.
If yes, how long have you been making them? If no, why not?
I think it’s been about six months to a year? Maybe?
What is your preferred method? Top down, toe up? Which needles? Do you have a preferred heel type?
My preferred method is top down, with a turned heel, with the tiniest of needles!
Have you gifted socks? Were they worn, loved and appreciated?
I’m currently filling up a fish bowl with micro-preemie socks. When it’s full, they will be donated to a local NICU for use.
Could you make nothing but socks for the rest of your life and be happy?
Probably not. It’s too much fun learning how to knit different things!
One of the most addictive things about sock knitting is the amazing selection of fingering weight yarn that is available. What is your favorite yarn for socks? Do you prefer solid or multi-color yarn? Do you have a fiber preference?
I prefer multi-color, fingering weight yarn, yes. I think my favorite so far was Patons Kroy Socks in Gentry Grey. It’s a super fine, wool/nylon blend… SO SOFT!
