I used to furrow my brow when people talked about knitting socks. So fiddly! So complicated! I can buy them from Primark for a fraction of the price!

My first pair was all about getting through them so I could say I hated knitting socks. Only I didn't.

This is the fourth pair, and the first pair i've made for someone else. Seed stitch rib, cheapo yarn from Ally Pally, and a very happy niece.

This cotton aran in pewter was a great choice for my first top-down jumper.
