Christine was excited to have finished her tubular socks. While she was making them she’d used it as an opportunity to try out different round needles to see which ones would be easiest for her to use. She had also been doing art yarn workshops and other things so it was a big achievement to get these spun wool socks finished. We loved the wool because it was so soft and then we were intrigued with how they looked. They fit snugly and comfortably.The colours are really good too. Tubular socks mean you don’t have to knit a heel and the ribbed pattern allows for stretch over the heel without distorting the look of the sock.
