The Advent Scrappy Sock Stripe-O-Metre

There are twenty-five more sleeps till we all get to open the first window of our advent calendars!  If, like me, you happen to be a knitter and have a yarn advent calendar you have good reason to be excited.

This year I’m hosting an advent calendar KAL over in the Louleigh Ravelry group.  Members of the group have been swapping mini skeins all year in preparation for this KAL; however, you are welcome to join no matter how you came by your calendar.  All projects are welcome too. You don’t have to be knitting scrappy frankensocks.


It is my tradition to make advent socks to wear on Christmas day.  I share this tradition with a very good friend.  She calls me on the first of December every year to ask how many rows of each colour she should knit. My friend can’t be the only knitter who isn’t sure how to work this out, so this year I’ve put together the Stripe-O-Meter.  The Stripe-O-Meter is meant to be used along side my Favourite Sock pattern, and my Favourite Toe-up Sock pattern, however you can still use it with your go-to vanilla sock pattern.

I’m delighted that so many people want to join in this winter knitting fun with me, and hope you have everything you need to start on 1 December.
