Socks and other exciting things.

So It's been a while since I posted about them – my poor toe-up Bayerische have been languishing while I worked on other things. But I finally got my behind into gear and got working. Once I sat down and worked on them exclusively the knitting sped past and it didn't hurt that I was very eager to wear them. I love the pattern!

First up:
Is It Spring Yet?

I had a lot of fun putting these together, I love the lacy twisted stitch and cable flowers and the lovely Lacey vine ribbing on the back give the leg lots of stretch.

from the pattern page:


Winter just seems to keep going. Everything is cold and covered in snow, and all I really want to do is get outside and see some color! These socks are all things I wish I could be seeing outside by February: bright flowers and trailing vines and leaves of spring! The front of the sock sports flowers highlighted by twist stitches and cables, while a twining cable climbs up the side and an undulating vine rib decorates the back.
This sock is 72 stitches around, please feel free to knit a a gauge that will give you the best fit.
Options for both a Short Row Heel and a more traditional style Gusset/Flap Heel are offered.


Available via Ravelry for $3.00

Quercus Socks


Quercus socks
model 1


I designed these with Bill in mind. I Love the oak leaf motif, and Really wanted to make a sweater with it, but didn't have the yarn for one. The oak motif would not get out of my head, so I finally gave in and started poking around a sock idea and this is what I came up with.

model 3


from the pattern page:


This is an earthy toe-up sock, originally designed for my husband. The central oak leaf and acorn panel is flanked by an engaging yet simple twisted stitch braid, with a lace style ribbing on the back of the leg reminiscent of rows of little acorns. The pattern invokes feelings of hiking through an English forest.
This sock is 73 stitches around, please feel free to knit at a gauge that will give you the best fit.
options for both a short row heel and a more traditional style gusset/flap heel are included.
