When the members of Team Anzula started considering a knitalong, we talked about more than a few different patterns. However, when we passed around the idea of doing these socks, the decision was unanimous.
Before starting the socks, we each chose two skeins in Squishy and Dreamy, but you could also choose two skeins of Sebastian. Kim is knitting in Slate, Sabrina picked Watermelon, Diane is currently obsessed with Fiona, Becca liked Coco, Sylvia chose Chiva, and Meg is going to wear 1 Red Shoe.
Not long after this photo of our yarn choices was taken,
Charlie revealed her penchant for Petunia. Kim slipped off to
the dye room to create a couple of Dreamy skeins especially for her, replacing her original choice of Teal that you can see in the photo.
Besides your skeins of yarn, you will need the correct circular or double-pointed needles to achieve gauge (the pattern calls for size #2), scrap yarn and a crochet hook for the provisional cast on, and a cable stitch holder. You'll also need to visit the Purl Bee for the free pattern.
We are all at different levels of knitting prowess so we hope that beginners as well as experienced knitters choose to knitalong with us. For beginners, we'll be posting helpful links at every step of the way. For experienced knitters, we hope that you'll share your own links and tips, and just enjoy having company as you knit a beautiful pair of socks. You can see our updates on the blog and our Facebook page, and participate in the Anzula group on Ravelry.
