The Need A Sock book is now out on Ravelry and on as a pdf download. If you would like hard copy look for it in your local yarn store or order from us directly at .

The Need A Sock book shows you how to knit a sock without a specific pattern. Brenda was the instigator of this project which is based on knitting socks according to a Sock Percentage System and between us we knit a lot of socks. But now that the book is out in public I have to admit that lots of the socks that I knit had no mates. A sad state of affairs.
Now that it is time to knit the mates I would like to start a KAL. Does that sound like a good idea for sock knitters out there? I will run it on our Cabin Fever group at Ravelry and on a new blog called KAL with Cabin Fever. I'm going to get started in a couple of weeks, this is just a heads up. I hope to see photos of socks in progress and to discuss accommodating fancy sock patterns. I'm knitting lots of socks in the next while and I hope you'll join me.


  1. Hi Deb,
    We are setting up a KAL sock group here @ Grey Heron in Collingwood.
    If anyone is interested in joining in, let me know.
    I hope Brenda Harris will be leading the charge to happy feet everywhere.

  2. Deb,
    My socks need mates too. Count me in.

  3. Great Idea! But Ann and I need to finish the JJ first!! Knitting for warmth - frost warnings here tonight!!
