About the The Bricolage Socks, Cromulent Socks, and Parnassian Socks
A few months back, I decided to make a mini collection of socks that played with a central theme. Each of these socks uses an eight-stitch repeat, but each repeat has a different number of eyelets. More specifically, the Parnassian Socks use one eyelet, the Cromulent Socks use two eyelets, and the Bricolage Socks use three eyelets.
I also knew I wanted to team up with Camellia Fiber Company again for this project. Silbia Ro, the owner and creative director, has a deft hand with colors that perfectly fit into the soft, dreamy aesthetic I prefer. She’s also a joy to work with, so I’m always on the lookout for projects we can tackle together!
Finally, I knew I wanted these socks to be made with sport-weight yarn, not the usual fingering-weight yarn. I had several reasons for that. Most importantly, I really wanted some socks that were extra squishy, so I could snuggle up while reading a book and not have cold toes (my toes are always, always cold). I also thought it would be nice to release some socks that knit up quickly so people can use them for gift knitting. Just as importantly, I wanted to have socks that are good for beginners to play around with, and thicker socks are a little easier to learn on.
Because if there’s one thing I’m passionate about sharing with other knitters, it’s the joy of knitting socks.
