There were some issues with track switching or something like that on my commute this morning so I had some extra knitting time. Behold the formerly unnamed sock:
Yes, this baby now has a name, courtesy of one of the suggestions in the comments: Catnip Socks. (Thanks, Andrea H.!)
And Finnian’s Gansey is coming along nicely, too. You can now actually see the pattern I’ve got going on:
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term “gansey,” you may want to check out this very informative website.
Will I make the pattern available for sale once I’ve finished it? It’s more likely that I’ll offer it up as a freebie because I don’t have the time or inclination to figure it out for multiple sizes.
Rivulets Socks Pattern Correction
Ida M. emailed me to point out what she thought was an error in the chart for size large of my free Rivulets Socks pattern:
I ran into problems on row 6 of the large chart…I’m thinking that the “stitch” that should be in position 25 on that row should be a yarn-over instead of a knit stitch.
You are so right, Ida and thank you for letting me know. I’ve corrected the chart and uploaded the new version of the pattern — it’s available from my Free Patterns Page.
Alchemy Juniper Sock Yarn
Within moments of reading the review of this new yarn at Knitters Review, I ordered some (from PurlSoho). It came today.
I’m sorry but I have to sign off now so that I can spend time with my new yarn. It is a spiritual experience.
