Purple Trekking (78) Socks!

Thanks to Susann, who sent me this sock yarn, I now have a new favorite pair of handknit socks.

Knit on 2.5 mm needles, Garter Rib pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks. Cuff down, slip stitch heel. They fit me perfect.

I knit these socks while I was worried to death, while I cried, when I needed something to do with my hands to calm my head. It worked.

Knitting is very comforting. Those socks look so fuzzy and snuggly!

Sarah, if I was to order the wheel below, is there anything else I would need to purchase for it to work? I know you have a Fricke. You can e-mail me at if you want to.
I would appreciate you input.



Fricke S-160-DT - Double Treadle Spinning Wheel

Another smooth operating wheel, this double treadle version of our popular S-160 is twice as easy to use. Use half the effort and get twice the power of most single treadle wheels. Easy delta orifice is standard; optional 3/8" round orifice with threading hook an additional $15. The frame is made of various hardwoods, such as ash, white or red oak. Wheel is MDF with attractive wood grain finish on both sides. Includes 4 bobbins and a Kate.

Terrific Value: $323. With Level-Wind Flyer and 4 Level-Wind Bobbins $551.

Very pretty socks - and I'm glad they helped you. Knitting really can be great therapy.

I love to knit socks for just that reason, I can really aggress on them and they love the tight knit from all my anxieties going into them. It's a win/win knitting situation. :-)

OH yeah, NICE SOCKS! I love garter rib. So easy and looks hard! ;-)
