The Sock Loom Revisited
Somehow, over time, a post has gained unexpected popularity: my post on my hatred of the sock loom. I'm a little surprised, but I'm also pleased that so many readers have written in to suggest ways that I can knit our socks without jamming this hard, rectangular piece of wood framing into my stomach while I sit watching TV. (Apologies to those of you who love it -- if it works for you, you should absolutely ignore me and keep rocking that sock loom!)
As for me, I am still not using my sock loom (anyone want to buy a gently-used sock loom?). Instead, I have tabled the project because most of my free time for needle arts is now spent crocheting yoga socks for my Etsy store, Carrot Creations. However, I'm thinking it would be easier for me to crochet socks since I'm more comfortable with one needle than with two. I plan to give it a try pretty soon.
So let's hear from you again -- are you knitting your own socks? Crocheting? Using a loom?
