I'm so excited to announce the release of my new sock pattern, Nikomedes. I really enjoyed designing these pretty socks and hope that knitters will adore knitting them as much as my test knitters and I did!
I used Shalimar Zoe Sock in Driftwood for the design. The color and yarn really show off the columns of lace cascading down the leg and instep and on the heel flap.
Shannon used Three Irish Girls Springvale Sock in Driftwood. It's so much fun to see my patterns come to life!
The three of us got together for lunch and a photo shoot last week. I had visions of us going out into the garden and maybe sitting on a bench for the pictures. The rustic background of a winter garden would have been the perfect backdrop. It wound up being only 20 degrees outside, with a wind chill of what felt like -100. We opted to stay inside, have hot cocoa and take pictures by the fire. We stayed warm and had a blast! There was a lot more giggling going on than actual picture taking.
I think we are all hoping that Punxsutawney Phill is going to tell us that spring is just around the corner. With that in mind, Ive created a coupon for my Ravely pattern shop.
