Bonjour, knitters:

Can you knit socks? I have such a jones for long knitted winter socks. Etsy is not doing it for me.

Would you like to knit me some knee socks? Or direct me to sock-knitters?

I'll pay!


  1. Alas, I can' knit anything but swatches (not the plastic watch kind---the small useless rectangle kind).

    Good luck with your Sock Quest!


  2. Ooooh, if only!! really none on etsy? Shame. x

  3. I wish I could knit. I never graduated much beyond 5th class knitting. And even that I've now forgotten.

  4. As soon as I've finished the jumper I started in 2008, you're on.

  5. I'll make you some! What colour? All I ask for in return is an invite to afternoon tea!

  6. not even these?

    Somewhere online is a co-op of grannies who knit. You can even choose which granny knits for you. I wonder if you can requst they knit socks

    Thpose cream ones do look lovely

  7. rach, i canna knit, but i have a secret wollongong knitwear cache. will divulge all at the greenbean on wednesday, if that suits you still...x

  8. I reckon my sister could hook you up with a sock knitter lady. I shall ask her tomorrow. x

  9. Hello,
    I've dropped in from being away for so long.

    I read the last few posts. I'm very sad about your dear little niece. I can't imagine the depth of pain your whole family has been through - especially her parents. xo to you.

    If I could, I'd sew you three socks (you'll invariably lose one, so you'll need a replacement). Actually, that's how all socks should be sold. (Copyright that idea.)

  10. Thanks for all the sock tips buddies. Amy I'll email you! You big nana style legend.


Thanks for talking to me. I don't got cooties. Oh, except for when I got cooties.
