The Rivulets Sock pattern is now available free in pdf format — here and from my Free Patterns page. Enjoy!
A few of you have asked me for more information about my Charlotte, NC trip. The basic info is on my “2009 Travel and Teaching Schedule” tab up at the top of the blog. (Heh. I just typed “blob” instead of “blog.” Twice.)
There is more detailed information on Charlotte Yarn’s Special Events page. I hope to see a bunch of you there!
About that sock I showed yesterday . . .
That was evidence of my negative progress. I had done 2″ of a pattern and decided it wasn’t quite right, so ripped it out. I’ve since made some better progress with an altered pattern.
The yarn is Sanguine Gryphon Sea Sock in the “Phoenix” colorway. This is a fingering weight yarn that is 70% superwash merino,30% seasilk. It’s a joy to knit.
The pattern is my own and is inspired by a new friend. Said friend is a busy mom of an adorable little girl. She also has a challenging career. She mentioned over the weekend that she loves the idea of handknit socks as a stamp of individuality you can pair with your business wardrobe. So I’m calling these socks “Muriel’s Socks” in her honor.
In this photo, I’ve just taught Muriel to knit (mwa-ha-ha!) and am demonstrating the glories of Plurk to her (double mwa-ha-ha!)
See how dangerous I am? (Dr. Jackie, take note of the level in the whiskey bottle.)
