Sock Pal, the socks are in the mail…

August 2nd, 2007

Just look for the envelope with the Sock Monkeys on it!Â


 For all inquiring minds out there, here is what is inside the Sock Monkey envelope:


Socks (duh!), the sock pattern, some handmade stitch markers courtesy of my sister, mini chibi’s, “I’m on this row” post-its, and knitting note cards. Is this envelope for you?? You’ll just have to wait and see!

I absolutely love this new Koigu color! I think I need a pair of these socks for myself!

Here’s a closeup of the stitch pattern—lace and cables—my favorites!


 For those of you not fortunate enough to be my sock pal, I’ve written up the pattern. I’d like to introduce you to the Cotton Candy Socks.


Light as air and as soft and squishy as cotton candy, these socks are all about the lace and cables. Designed for the adventurous knitter, the lace and cables flow around the ribbing, accommodating a wide range of sizes.

Knit with Koigu KPPPM [100% Merino Wool, 175yds/160m, 50g ball]; color #P224; 2 skeins; on size 2 needles with a gauge of 7 sts per inch; Women’s small (medium).

Available as a downloadable PDF file.
