Knit Vlog No. 13 | Save a Horse socks

Note: there are affiliate links in this post. Thanks for your support of Knit Vlog!


Knit Vlog is back with lucky episode number 13! In this episode I go into some detail about how I knit my socks on small circular needles as I share the story of my Save a Horse socks.

So, without further ado, here is Knit Vlog Number 13 | The Save a Horse Socks



If the embedded player isn't working, go directly to the YouTube video here. 

You might have noticed a new format for Knit Vlog: now each episode is dedicated to a specific project. I thought it would make it easier for those of you looking for details about individual projects and I thought it would also be neat to document my knitting via project for my future self when I'm looking back on what I've made. 

I LOVE this new format and hopefully you do, too!

I should also mention that Lucy, my eight year old, did a lot of the camera work in this episode. She was a wonderful help! Thank you, Lucy!
