New Pattern in Knitty, Deep Fall 2014

Some very exciting news. I have a pattern in the latest issue of
I’ve known for awhile and been desperate to share the news. Here's the Ravelry page.

The pattern is called Ticklepenny and it’s for a pair of socks. The yarn weight is not one that is typical for socks. Instead of using a standard fingering/4ply sock yarn; it is worked using a light fingering / heavy laceweight yarn. The yarn used is Tall Yarns ‘n Tales Soliloquy™ Sock Lace, available here.

The socks are a unisex design and the idea came about when my Mum requested a pair of socks that would fit easier in a pair of shoes. The socks are worked on a 2mm needle and at this gauge allows for a lot of detail in the design.

The socks are worked from the top down. The panels down the side of the sock are mirrored for each sock. There is an eye of partridge heel flap and the feet are plain, so they are easier to fit inside a pair of shoes.

The model is my lovely sister-in-law and the puppy is Bella, who very fleetingly sat still for a photograph.

I had photo shoot on my parent-in-law’s farm, which was fun. Unbelievably, the pictures with the yellow in the background are my sister-in-law stood in the corn bucket! She was a great sport! Plus, it does make for an interesting background.
