CanSock: The What & Why

Welcome to CanSock - a place where sock knitting Canadians can share all of the ups, downs, and knowledge they have acquired through the sock knitting process.

This blog was created by me, the CanSockMom, as a place to gather together the information I spent hours (and hours and hours and hours) looking for when I first began knitting socks. I found an amazing amount of wonderful information on line, much of it from the U.S., Australia, and the U.K. I hope to make things a little less overwhelming by narrowing the focus strictly to the Canadian sock knitting experience.

As the site grows, postings will include information about successfully finished pairs of socks, and the lessons learned from failed socks, too. Contributors to CanSock will have the option of having their personal blogs or websites linked. The sidebar will include links to Canadian sources of sock knitting supplies, free "how to" style patterns, teaching sites, etc.

I hope that other sock knitting Canadians will come forward to share their socks through this blog, and that it will become a place for us to celebrate together.

Happy Sock Knitting!
