New Boots and Contracts


It's a brand new sock pattern, and it's free for everyone.


Anecdote for stressing out about new knitting design projects: Make something and share it. Some days I feel like I should be working harder on my knitting endeavors, producing, living up to a demand that, it turns out, exists for my patterns. As I get more opportunities to design, I've decided to only take those that allow me to make what I want on a schedule that works for me.

I made these socks to remind myself why I started writing down my ideas in the first place. And you can make them, too!

I feel that way sometimes too, and I don't even design yet. I am trying to break my habit of expecting things to be perfect right out of the gate and abandoning them if they aren't, or worse, never starting in the first place.

Those socks are really cool and look comfy.

Love the stripey heel and toe and the sharing. How great to be in demand as a designer even if there is stress involved.
