Hello Blog! You will (I hope) recall reading about a little MOCK I was hosting a post or two back. It was great fun, and some really good socks have come out of it. The mystery is over now, all of the clues have been released, so let me show you the pictures of my socks.
The pattern features a fun, pointy motif that runs right down the front, from top to toe.
And another motif on the back, so you can look great from any angle.
It has a textured heel flap heel, and a ribbed toe that repeats the symmetrical rib pattern at the cuff of the sock.
The pattern has both written instructions and charts. This is the fist time I’ve ever done both, and whoo, is it a good bit of extra work! But I’ve had a lot of requests for it, so hopefully it’s worth it.
The beautiful bright blue yarn is from RainCityKnits, it’s called Rain Drop Blue. Krista does some whopping bright colours, and also choose your own colour self striping yarn – tempting, right?
It’s a fun knit, with the motifs to keep you interested and some plain stockinette to speed things along. Of course, it’s now available on Ravelry for the wee little price of only $2.00! So you can knit someone some awesome Christmas socks without completely blowing your budget on the pattern, yay!
