At Side Hustle Socks, we hustle your sock yarn into tubes for socks! and fingerless mitts! and scarves! and cowls! and neckwarmers! and leggings!
It all started when we observed that knitters love sock yarn, and love to give special socks to knit-worthy friends and loved ones. We see a beautiful skein of yarn and think, “That would be perfect for my sister,” or “Those are Tom’s team colors. He’d love a pair of socks from that yarn,” or “Oh, I love those colors. I’ll make myself a pair of socks.”
Then reality hits.
It takes a lot of time to knit a pair of socks. We thought, what if we could cut the time of knitting socks to hours? And Side Hustle Socks was born.
You give us your sock yarn, and we return a detailed pattern along with your hand cranked 60, 72 or 84-stitch stockinette tube. We don’t knit the sock heels, toes, or cuffs (thumbs and edges on mitts, and shaping options on neckwarmers); we leave that fun to you.
In a couple of evenings, you can turn the tube into a lovely pair of socks or fingerless mitts, a scarf, or a neckwarmer.
