From K: Warm Toes

One of the more ambitious items on my most recent Hit List was to knit myself a pair of socks. The last and only thing I've ever knit was a scarf nearly a decade ago, but after being inspired by all the quilty blogs who have been posting knitwear, I decided it was high time to jump in.

Here is my very first attempt at socks. It's not much, just a fairly basic stocking stitch but I knit it in the round, and to me, that's a huge achievement.

This was definitely a great project to get me excited about knitting, and I started a second pair of socks about ten minutes after finishing up this set. The next pair is quite a bit more challenging and I'm so pleased with how they're knitting up. I'm hoping for a reveal after a couple more weeks of train commutes so I'll keep you posted. 

I have to be honest in saying that taking photos of my own feet has definitely been the most bizarre shoot for our blog to date. It was also fairly challenging when this was happening:


Good thing they're so cute because they sure aren't conducive to floor based photo shoots!


  1. Woo you finished them! A new knitting addiction?... Love that blue

  2. I am super impressed you went from a scarf to socks. And they look great.

  3. I love them, Kelsey!! And the color is awesome. Just wound up some orange sock yarn tonight to start my first pair....can't wait! Did you do these one at a time or two? Toe up or ankle down?
