Future Friday- yoga/pilates socks

So I've recently decided that I would like to add a line of yoga/pilates socks to Innov8ive Knits lineup of goodies. I have a ton of great new ideas for these, but I had to narrow it down to just one to get started. This is the next thing on my list to knit up!

The original pattern calls for a blend of two yarns: alpaca and kid silk. For those of you who don't knit, this makes for a very warm, soft, and fuzzy end product. Since it doesn't get terribly cold here in Alabama, and I'm not a big fan of that look I would like to use a different yarn. The end result will be very similar to the look in the above picture. 

This makes for a simple, classic pair of socks that depending on the color used can be appropriate for both men and women. There is something so attractive to me about a crisp, clean cable… Now that I think about it, this pattern looks very similar to the cable on my never ending scarf!  When you know what looks you like, you know.

I'm very excited to get started on this project and add to the different types of shop selections.  As a side note here is a list of the "shop selections" I plan to provide via Facebook and my Etsy store: 

  • Children/Baby clothes & hats
  • Adult hats
  • Scarves
  • Skinny ties
  • Wedding Veils
  • Yoga/Pilates socks
If you have any opinions/ideas on what color I should use on this Future Friday project please feel free to comment below! Also, I would love to hear from YOU on what you would like to see in the store next. It just might be the next Future Friday topic. :)


  1. I love the yoga sock idea, cute socks! Good luck with your blog and shop! New follower from blogaholic, have a great weekend! You can find me at Stop by my blog when you get the chance :)

  2. Thanks for stopping by I appreciate the support! I will definitely check your blog out. I teach pilates on the side and LOVE my pair, I haven't seen many out there to purchase much less attractive ones (at least in my opinion) so hopefully they are popular!
