Woodsmoke & Ash Blog Tour Stop 2 - Hazel Knits

Today the Woodsmoke & Ash blog tour stops at the Hazel Knits blog with a focus on Resin.  

It's a DK weight sock pattern worked from the toe up in an engaging geometric stitch pattern.  One of the design elements I love about the pattern is the hemmed cuff.  It creates a very neat edge, and allows you to finish off the sock without binding off at all.  Head over the the Hazel Knits blog for a tutorial on how to flawlessly whip stitch your hem without binding off, and a chance to win a copy of the book.

Using the tutorial as an excuse, I knit myself a sock (the size 7.5 in/19 cm fits me perfectly) and would love some company in making the second one.  If you're interested in a KAL, leave a comment in the Woodsmoke & Ash thread in my Ravelry group.


  1. Loved the tutorial on the HK blog. Didn't realize these are toe-up socks before commiting to the KAL! Yikes! Short row heels and I haven't gotten along so far, but I'm determined to learn to do it! Will yo u hold my hand through the process? :-)

  2. Of course! My trick for short row heels is to give a tug at the beginning of every row to prevent holes where the shaping is. My other trick is to use duplicate stitch on the inside to snug up anything I'm not thrilled with. Please ask any questions you have - maybe I'll even get around to doing a short row tutorial!
