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.
