Socks the Fit KAL

After two dozen cardigans, I can honestly say that I've mastered the art of sweater knitting. There's always something to learn and tweak and try, and I will forever call myself a sweater knitter. But it's high time to learn how to make socks that fit. I mean really fit. Not kinda sorta. But really.

So I'm starting a new knitalong on the Knitting at Large Rav board called, appropriate enough, Socks that Fit KAL. The rules are simple:
  • Knit whatever sock pattern you want
  • Use whatever yarn you want
  • Start around June 1 or whenever you want
  • Just make it fit
I'll be blogging about what I learn regarding knitting socks for ample bodies and I hope the plenitude of sock knitters will chime in with knowledge, tips, suggestions, and warnings. Guidance about yarn and patterns are also heartily and gratefully requested.

To join, just go to the Socks the Fit KAL topic and start yakking. Get your yarn, your patterns, your needles, and get going! It's been a while since we've done a KAL and this sounds like the perfect summer project to me.
