I'm heading out to Stitches West this morning and I can barely contain my excitement. I've packed, walked the dog, fed the goats and chickens, and got the boy off to school. That leaves me a few extra minutes to take pictures of my feet and write a quick post about my new Marlene socks:
Pattern: Marlene by Cookie A
Source: PDF from the Vogue Knitting website
Materials: 1 skein Miss Babs Windsor sock yarn, and US 2 (2.75 mm) needles
Modifications: None! The pattern gives instruction for only one size, but the stitch pattern is so stretchy that these would fit a wide variety of feet sizes by simply adjusting for length.
I bought this yarn at Stitches last year, and I'm happy to have made use of it in time to wear these socks when I am back at the convention this year. I'm especially pleased because I'm taking a class from Cookie A, who wrote this pattern. Knitting up these cleverly designed socks made me appreciate Cookie A's genius even more. I can't wait to come back home with new sock yarn and fresh sock knitting ideas.
If you happen to be attending Stitches too, and you spot me, please say Hello!
