I did indeed finish the first of these socks last night, yay! The thing is, they fit me better than any socks I’ve ever made for myself. Do I have to give them away? Of course I will, but I might make some for myself at some point.

I did manage to take it off, and my feet are back in their fuzzy feet. Cozy, but not quite so stylish.

(I will wash these socks before I post them to my aunt, don’t worry)

Oh and to everyone who has asked where I got the pattern for Snow White from. I’d love to be able to send you a link, but at the moment it’s in my head, and not quite all worked out. Sorry if I wasn’t very clear that it’s my own design. The pattern is coming though. I just need to knit this second version to check that all the changes I’ve made work out.? I’m delighted that you’re interested though.

We’ve just released DK gauge versions of my popular Stockbridge and Ravelston patterns, which were originally published for a fingering weight yarn.They’re essentially designed around the same basic construction and with a similar fit, Stockbridge is a cardigan and Ravelston a pullover.  My goal with both is that they’ll be staple patterns you can use to build your handknit wardrobe, the kind of basic patterns that work for lots of different looks.

Lightweight cowls are the perfect alternative to a shawl or scarf when you want to be able to toss something on quickly and know it will stay in place. I’ve really enjoyed designing them over the last few years and now have a few options to fit different styles.
