Diagon Alley Socks

I bought this beautiful Woolen Boon Sock Yarn on my trip to Melbourne in 2018. The colorway is Mr. Brightside and it was awesome to knit with. It had the perfect blend of wool and nylon and such great stitch definition.

The pattern is Diagon Alley Socks and is featured in Knotions. I knit up the medium (7.75”) size using a US 0 needle. The pattern included charts and written directions and was easy to follow. I didn’t like the heel flap directions so I just kept it plain old stockinette. Other than that I kept pretty much to what was written.

I am loving my new socks! I hope that the color stays this saturated as I wear them. The blues and flecks of neon really pop. I am already plotting making these in and warm tone colorway. Just have to find the right yarn.

Until Next Time,

Exciting News and Free Patterns!

Hey everyone! I am happy to announce that my Snuggly Loops Cowl pattern went live today. I am super pleased to have it had it published in Knotions Magazine’s November 2016 issue. Snuggly Loops is a quick knit that combines dropped stitches and interlocking loops. It will easily become one of your favorite go-to accessories for winter warmth. Since it is a bulky knit, the cowl would be a great holiday gift to whip up for someone special.

Freebies

I love Instagram. It is such a great way to share projects and promote fiber related things. I recently stumbled upon this post: 

   What a cute hat! And the pattern is free? Awesome! I clicked the link to Knotions Magazine and discovered a nice site. There are free patterns and tutorials available. The patterns look very well written and most contain charts and written directions. So when you have a few moments head over to their site to oogle some fiber goodness.
