Philosockphy's Sock of the Month for January: Blind Warps, Yarn Dyeing, and More


What if I told you that you could add style to your socks without compromising the quality? What if I told you that you could find more comfortable and stylish socks than the ones you have right now? What if I told you there was a way to do this without breaking the bank or searching high and low at every store in your area? Welcome to Philosockphy’s sock of the month club! Every month, we’ll feature one incredible, unique sock at an affordable price – and we’re always happy to answer any questions about our products and services.


Blind Warp

The blind warp process is a bit trickier than others, but it yields some pretty cool looking socks. The basic idea is that you can use a different color as your warp or horizontal threads instead of just one color. These are then hidden on the inside of your sock so they don't show up when you wear them. This creates really interesting patterns and designs in your sock. It also makes those funky socks a little more durable because now you have an extra layer where all the abrasion from walking will happen.

Yarn Dyeing

Instead of thinking about socks as winter wear, try wearing them year-round! ankle socks are perfect if you want some warmth without feeling like you are too bundled up in cold weather gear.

Mock Cables

I love socks. I'm not a sock snob either. I'm happy with any socks that are comfortable, have good grip on the bottom, and don't wear out too quickly. That said, it's really nice when you find a pair of socks that exceed all your expectations.
Enter Philosockphy! This is one of the best sock subscriptions out there because they have something for everyone--from fun men's ankle socks to crazy color dress socks or cool mens socks--and they include some great extras (like toe separators!).
Their motto is socks are happiness and it couldn't be more true!


Colorwork with Two Colors

A great example of this is Philosockphy's Socks of the Month. Every month we send you a pair of new socks with an awesome pattern that you won't find anywhere else! We start by dyeing our sock yarn with two different colors in order to create a pattern. There are many fun patterns that can be created using only two colors including stripes, chevrons, and wavy lines. The best part about this technique is that it doesn't matter which color is on top because they will both show up on your socks!


Thumb Gussets

A thumb gusset is an extra column of knitting that’s placed between the last stitch on one needle and the first stitch on a neighboring needle. They are often used to create a smoother finish at the top of ribbing or other pattern stitches. The knit stitches in this section are usually done in contrasting colors to make them easier to see. A thumb gusset can also be used as part of a crescent heel flap on socks, or as part of an afterthought heel.
