New Sock Patterns Available

The Snake Charmer Socks were originally done for The Knitter.com’s luxury sock club.  Now I am making the pattern available to everyone.  The sock is knit from the cuff down in Sunshine Yarns Soft yarn base.  The cuff is a basketweave pattern that moves into an undulating lace pattern, just like snakes being charmed from a basket.  The lace comes to a point on the instep of the sock.  A fun and beautiful knit for solid or semi-solid sock yarns.

The Riptide socks were originally from The Knitter.com’s sock of the month club, but the pattern is now available to everyone.  I finished knitting these in Hawaii and did the photo shoot at Waikoloa Village.  The diverging cable pattern reminded me of a riptide current — hence the name.  These socks are knit from the cuff down in Zitron Lifestyle which is close to a sport weight yarn.  The pattern includes notes about knitting them at other gauges to create additional sizes.   (Hint: you could also knit these in a fingering weight yarn very easily!)  The solid color and classic cabling make this a true unisex pattern.

I still have more to update, including more yarnie birthday gifts and new Pink Dandelion colors!
