  • Want an ankle sock, calf length or knee length


Great Socks for Hiking, Walking, a Stroll or Sitting on the Sofa

Sock yarns with a high percentage of wool breath well, add to that a percentage of man made fibre for strength and you have the perfect yarn for socks.


Socks are knitted in a rib stitch for elasticity and comfort.


Kitchener Stitch

All my socks are hand grafted using

‘Kitchener Stitch’ for comfort.

 

During WW1 toe seams on socks caused rubbing on Tommy's feet. General Kitchener asked knitters to graft the toe seams, hence the name.

I Knit Socks

I can knit socks in most yarns and sizes.

For very small or very large socks I they may need to be knitted on one of my other knitting machines. Knitting on a standard machine there will be a seam on the rib and the sock will be knitted in stocking stitch. 


Contact me with your requirements and I will send  you a quote.
