ROGERS.....



I think Anne Hanson's 'Roger Sock' has to be one of my favourite sock patterns ever. The pattern is easily memorised, yet involved enough to keep the knitter engaged and it produces a lovely thick fabric. 


Couple a great pattern with a gorgeous yarn and you've got the perfect match!


 Here I've used Sweet Georgia yarn's 'Tough Love Sock' in colour way 'mulberry'. It's a slightly more delicate colour than the photos show; absolutely gorgeous. I need another skein of this for a scarf!


The beautiful bag, again one of my favourites, compliments the yarn beautifully! It is, of course, one of Michele's creations from 'Three Bags Full'.


I just love sock knitting! It has to be the best project choice ever....... especially with yummy yarn, cool bag and great pattern!

The Roger sock is probably my favourite knitspot sock pattern. Yours look fabulous in that gorgeous yarn and the bag goes perfectly, especially with that spotty lining! xx

I am knitting Anne Hanson'sLuxor socks at the moment.It is my personal challenge to try as many different sock patterns as is possible!Love the look of the yarn.I thought we were "socked out" but OH has been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and finds his hand knitted socks easier to put on so more are needed!Barbara

oh i love that yarn - so gorgeous!

my dad is called Roger, and every time you or the kitten post about these socks i always think, "i need to make a pair of those!" and this time is no different... although odds are good you'll finish those and many more pairs before i ever get my first pair of rogers done :)
