I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.
Vanessa antiopa Socks by Hunter Hammersen

I delivered the Rainbow Vanessa Socks to Turtle and was happy to spend some quality time with her clan.

Knit socks also make great hats.

I also had a lovely time playing Marco Polo in the pool with my brother and nephews and niece. The gray socks fit my niece; I was so pleased to find them a home with someone I love enough to give hand knit socks to….and it healed my heart to have them go to someone that knows and loves my dad (the intended recipient).

The niece may have a future in sock modeling.

Back in 2010, I started knitting socks. I never really got the big deal with sock knitting and wasn’t a huge fan of walking on my knitting, but I ran across a little book called Silk Road Socks and quickly became an addict.Silk Road Socks

Over the years, I’ve made a few socks. Here are some of the Hunter Hammersen socks I’ve knit for you to peruse during this lovely month of Socktober.
