Doctor Who Sock Yarn

Fact:  I love sock yarn.  Problem:  I don’t know how to knit socks.  I bought two skeins of KnitPick’s Felici sockyarn in Time Traveler.  Why?  Because it self- stripes into the colors of the Fourth Doctor’s (Tom Baker) scarf!  I couldn’t resist.  I guess I am going to learn to knit socks.
In theory, I think I can do it.  I know how to knit on double pointed needles.  I have done short rows.  So, I just need a good starter pattern.
And so I did a search and found a stockinette stitch sock pattern from About.com. It explains everything and looks straightforward enough.  I will have to give it a try.  And then I’ll have Doctor Who socks!

  1. I'm ordering myself some of the Doctor Who sock yarn when I get settled out west. I already have the yarn for the Doctor Who scarf and matching socks would be the bomb.

    A good way to learn how to make socks is to get the book Sensational Knitted Socks–that's the book I learned from. There's lots of patterns broken down section by section, and it walks you through making socks using 4 or 5 DPN or 2 circular needles…which once you learn how to make socks using two circs, you may never want to use DPNs again. But that's just my opinion 🙂

  2. Ah, thank you for the book suggestion! Funny thing, is that I love DPN's, but I want to learn to use two circulars, too.

    I have the yarn for a Doctor Who scarf, as well. I do have one started but it is WAY too wide.
