Awhile back I found this etsy website that will knit socks for you! I truly LOVE sock yarn. Since I'm primarily a crocheter, sock yarn is thin enough for thick crochet stitches while still producing a desireable weight fabric for garments. I have knitted socks before, I just don't have the patience for those teensy-tiny knitting needles. Much of my sock yarn is targeted for sweater, scarf and hat projects, however I do have a few skeins hanging around that really should be knit into socks. I believe that the socks are knitted using an antique circular sock knitting machine. Fascinating!
As soon as my etsy approval goes thru, I'll be sending this gorgeous Noro sock yarn, #185 colorway to Fernwood Woolworks for some ladies' socks! I'll let you know the outcome.
