Crazy about socks!

Hi there!
Welcome to my shop, where the array of bright, bold, and spunky colours may blind you or intrigue you! Here is the story behind them:

My name is Sakinah. I’m 22 years old and as you can see I’m kinda obsessed with knitting socks! Though not just any socks, I love bright, vibrant and totally spunky coloured socks. Thus the shop name-SpunkyKnitsShop. Why? It’s simple, I’m crazy about socks! I’m one of those weird people who wears socks all year long. Pair that with my love for bright coloured yarn and voilà!

But there’s more to these socks. These socks hold many sweet memories of my dear Grandma who not only instilled me with the love of knitting but who also taught me how to knit. My knitting journey started when I went to live with my grandma for some time. She offered to teach me how to knit, and I thought well, why not!
However it was not that easy. I still remember those many frustrating hours I spent sitting with my grandma struggling to knit my first ever pair of socks. I would peek over at her and would barely be able to see the needles working in perfect synchrony almost like magic. Was is it even possible? I would think. Now looking back at those moments always brings a smile to my lips. Those moments were full of laughter and yes sometimes tears but most of all they were treasured moments spent with my grandma.

While learning to knit, my grandma gifted me my first ever knitting book. A book titled “Knit Your Socks on Straight” by Alice Curtis. As a novice knitter, it was a dream come true! I could knit what I love best (socks) without the painstaking hours of learning to knit with 4 or 5 of those scary double pointed needles. I instantly fell in love with this amazing sock pattern.

And there you have it! The story behind these socks! Hope you enjoyed it. I’m so happy that I can share my knitted socks with you!

Every sock I design is unique in colour because I strongly believe our strength lies in our uniqueness. So with this in mind, I try to design socks that are wonderfully different. Hope you come across something that’s just right for you!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Thanks for stopping by my shop!
