I'm Doug - 'the Soxophone Player'. I make these Jazzy Sox with an antique hand cranked circular sock knitter (circa 1800s). No part of the knitting is automated.
I weave the toes closed by hand using the Kitchener Stitch - almost invisibly - leaving no pesky seam.
I knit with a wide variety of yarns - my own, from here at the farm, hand painted yarns from other artisans, exotic fibres, hand spun yarns, and even some commercial art yarns that I fancy.
