I went to the office this morning.
No one wanted to have a photo taken with me.
No one wanted me to autograph anything.
No one was happy to see me.
Yup, back to reality. 😉
Right now all I’m knitting is my second St. Louis sock. But I’m making good progress.
That reminds me that I did not show you the sock pattern I designed for the Spring Fling. Named, very creatively, “Spring Fling Socks.”
I knit the sample from ShibuiKnits sock yarn, and the pattern is written so they can be knit toe-up or top-down. It’ll be available for sale in the next couple of weeks from The Loopy Ewe for any of you non-Flingers who would like to have it. In fact, I’ll have a few new patterns available then.
It’s been a long while since I released any new patterns for sale, but I have a good reason. As some of you already know, I have recently completed work on a book of toe-up socks. It will be published by Potter Craft and the publication date is April 14, 2009. Yeah, almost a year from now. In addition to 23 sock patterns, it has an extensive reference section with step-by-step illustrated instructions for toes, heels, and bind-offs for toe-up socks, along with all the tips and tricks I know to make sock knitting fun and easy.
So I was busy with sock patterns for the book for a few months. 🙂
Okay, gotta go knit.
