Knit Some Yoga Socks

Scared to knit socks? I am—although I keep trying and one day will conquer the sock challenge. It’s the heels thing—makes me say bad words.

In the meantime, I found a free knitting pattern for yoga socks that avoids the dreaded heel area that is the bane of beginning sock knitters. The pattern is called Easy Peasy Yoga-Pilates Socks. Visit the Six Degrees Arts
blog to get the instructions. These socks really are easy—you can make them without saying any bad words at all.

Your socks are so adorable with fun colors!! Good job, June! I knit a (one) sock for my new husband (1966) for our first St. Nick's night. I had never 'turned a heel'... just followed the directions step-by-step and it was perfect. Now if I were to try it I'd be in a mess. There's something about youth and the magic 'I can do anything' attitude.

I'm feeling that way with Photoshop right now. If only I could have learned this when I was younger.

I love the yoga so, though I have to giggle at the lengths some people will go to avoid heel turns :-)
Conquer that fear, June!

I love that Colrway, what kind of yarn is it? I think you should add turning heels to the 2009 to do list. You are doing an awesome job with it.

I'm going to make those socks! I've seen the pattern before, and I think it's brilliant!!! Yours are beautiful. I just knit my first pair of socks a few weeks ago: http://flickr.com/photos/nofury/3186493148/ . They aren't perfect, but they fit!!!
