Twas the Night Before Christmas Socks

I am so excited to introduce the Twas the Night Before Christmas Socks my very first sock design.

These socks were inspired by my favourite yearly tradition - the Christmas Eve cast on. 

If you're not familiar with the Christmas Eve cast on let me tell you about it. 

In 2014 I started a video podcast, Little Bobbins Knits, sharing my knitting projects. I mentioned that I had a tradition of casting on a pair of socks each Christmas Eve. These socks would always carry the special memories of the festive season. I was thrilled when people who watched the podcast liked this idea and decided to adopt the tradition for themselves. It was so wonderful to see people joining in and sharing snippets of their celebrations and their newly cast on Christmas Eve socks. 

The Twas the Night Before Christmas socks were inspired by the warm feeling I get when I think about all of the other knitters across the world casting on their special Christmas Eve socks. I do hope you will like them and I hope you will join in with us to knit your own pair of Christmas Eve socks.

We will be chatting about our socks in the Little Bobbins Knits Ravelry Group and sharing our photos on instagram using the hashtag #lbkchristmasevesocks2017 . 

I will be knitting the Twas the Night Before Christmas socks this year, if you would like to too then the pattern is available in my Ravelry Store.
