What Happened to August??

September 2, 2009

August was a very successful month for getting some of those pattern ideas out of my notebooks and onto the needles. The process is almost as liberating as clearing off my needles. Unfortunately, the process of writing patterns is a little more complicated than finishing WIPs so “Design Month” may last through September as well.

I am happy to report that the first of my new patterns is complete.
May I introduce you to

Arwen Slipper Sock

These delicate little slipper socks look like something Arwen Evenstar might wear on the cool evenings in Rivendell. They’re perfect for keeping those elven toes toasty in the winter.

Special thanks to Tina aka AzKnitter for the pattern name. It is perfect, I loved it from the time I read her comment. I have a copy of the pattern just for you as a thank you. I also want to say thank you to Barb, Sue, Linda and especially Lynn who helped so much with the test knitting and pattern editing. You guys ROCK!!! I mean seriously ROCK!!

This is an outrageously quick knit that’s perfect for gifts. Several of the test knitters are planning to give these as Christmas gifts this year. I admit that there are a couple of people on my gift list who will be receiving a pair too. Construction is top down, with heel flap and gusset, and standard decreased toe with grafted closure. Instructions are suitable for all but the beginning knitter.


add to cart

I have three more patterns with test knitters so they should be available in a couple of weeks.

For one final bit of business, the winner of the contest is Deb who posted her entry via email. I will be emailing you a copy of the Arwen pattern. I will email you the others as they are finalized. Congratulations and thanks for participating.

    The socks really do look wonderful. I agree that they look like great Christmas gifts. I may even have to re-think my list so that I can add at least one pair of these into it! :)
