Yeah, I know the popular choice for the name of this sock pattern was “Chutes and Ladders,” but several of you alerted me to the fact that there’s another sock pattern out there with that name.
I do realize that in the universe there is more than one instance of patterns with the same name. But if I am made aware of a pattern by the same name, I’ll avoid using that name.
So the new sock pattern shall henceforth be known as “Making Tracks.” And here are the socks, making their blog debut.
These are knit from sportweight yarn using 2.75mm needles. I am quite pleased with them.
I made the legs pretty tall on these — taller than I usually do. But I was on a roll, you know? This sock yarn had 280 yards per skein, and this is what I had left over after completing the socks.
My Patterns at The Loopy Ewe
I was so excited by the great response when Sheri put my sock patterns up for sale last night. Yeah, they are sold out at this point, but don’t worry — she placed another (big!) order with me immediately so I’ll be shipping a new stock of patterns to her very soon. Thank you so much to all of you who jumped in and bought ‘em! I hope you enjoy knitting them as much as I did.
By the way, for every copy of the Healthy Spine Sock pattern that is sold, Sheri and I are donating a portion of our profits to the Arthritis Foundation. It seems appropriate, no?
I’ll continue to make my sock patterns available through The Loopy Ewe so if you see it here in progress, you will in all probability see it for sale over there soon thereafter. Unless we decide the pattern is not worthy for whatever reason.
In the U.S. we are coming up on Labor Day Weekend, the traditional end of summer. I took Friday and Tuesday off from work (and Monday is a holiday) so I’ve got a very nice long weekend. Time off work without medical appointments.
Instead I’ll be getting sock patterns ready to ship.
Lucy, on the other hand, is just primping so she’ll look pretty all weekend.
