Joy, it just might help! My friend's mom had super-sensitive feet and she said having hand-knit socks basically changed her life.

Sarah, no, I haven't read that. I will look it up! Thanks for commenting.


Great list! Have you read 'A life in stitches' by Rachel Heron? Such a sweet memoir of a knitter

What a great list of books. I haven't managed to get into knitting, but now I'm wondering if homemade socks might be the cure to my plantar fasciitis. I'm convinced my flare-ups are often related to socks bunching up in a bad spot.


Kim, at my yarn shop job, I've noticed that people tend to be partial to whichever one they learned first. You're right about crocheting going faster, though!

Tanya, making anything with yarn is the perfect winter activity as far as I'm concerned. :) Thanks for commenting!


Great list and around November is always when I get back into knitting. It seems like such a winter activity. But like Kim, I prefer crocheting. It just comes more intuitively to me.

My grandma has taught me the basics of knitting, but since I learned to crochet first I think I prefer crocheting to knitting -- it goes faster too :)

Great list, thank you for sharing!
