Socks of Win!

August 12, 2010

Look at what I am making:

That’s the front, here’s the back:

After spending a weekend surrounded by super awesome designers, I was inspired to create a new pattern.

The dark yarn is Louet Sport Charcoal, the fantastic green is my brand new skein of Bugga! from Allison. The colorwork motif came from a chart in Allison’s fantastic book, 1000 Great Knitting Motifs. The pattern, to be titled “Socks of Win” (inspired by my super awesome friend Aud) should be available through Ravelry soon. And by soon, I mean whenever I get around to it. Right now they’re going incredibly fast, but I’m also incredibly excited. We’ll see how long that lasts.

Cool, hey?
