Can’t show you….

I am working on a twisted stitch design for top down socks. I started one sock and got half-way done using my standard needle size of 2.25mm. Since the design has a lot of stitches, I increased my stitch count from 64 to 72. HOWEVER….silly me, it “looked” like enough stitches to fit my foot. I bet you can guess what I am going to write next huh?  

Well, the sock doesn’t fit. Since my design is pretty set to use the entire front half of the sock, there really wasn’t any logical way to modify the pattern for additional stitches. Plus, I really liked the design as it was.  So, I started another sock using 2.5mm DPNs. The fabric that is created is less stiff and I’m pleased with it. 

I would show you, but my goal for this year is to submit the design to a magazine and I can’t have any pictures posted online so for now, you will have to wait to see!

More butterflies!

i wanted to share my next project with you. It is another pair of my latest design, Split Butterflies.  I gave my first pair away to my best friend, Michele, so I needed to have a pair to keep for me. The yarn I am using is Malabrigo in the “Color of Love”. 

  

Facebook post from Cascade Yarns

My friend just texted me to tell me that Cascade Yarns updated their Facebook page with a link to my pattern and photos! My design is still in the top 5 this afternoon.

I’m not trying to “brag” but I’ve been dreaming about having a “famous” pattern on Ravelry and to me this is so cool. 😃
