There’s something about knitting socks which non-knitters really don’t understand. Maybe it’s because socks are now so cheap to buy, so ordinary and throw-away. But there really is nothing like wearing a pair of handknit socks – they are warm, toasty and indulgent. And so much prettier.
I am in the process of making some Monkey socks from Madelinetosh Sock in Logwood. The colour is a perfect rich violet-purple.
