Maryann knit the single-stranded blanks on her flat bed knitting machine with sport weight yarn. She then dyed all 14 of them a light shade of pink, tonal.
Here is all 14 of them drying. They share the same large designs, but they are all unique.
I began knitting the sock, unraveling as I went. I made the leg longer than I normally would have, but I just loved how the colors are knitting up and there is plenty of yarn to make two long and/or big socks.
One of my non-knitter guy friends called them "bacon socks." Men, always thinking about food.
I love ten row lace patterns. I think they make the time and the rows fly by. I absolutely adore the lacy hearts on this sock. I couldn't find a stitch pattern that I liked, so I had to improvise my own. It took me a few tries to get the hearts to look the way I wanted. I LOVE the way this sock turned out.
I'm so excited to release the pattern on Saturday. It will be available on Ravelry on Saturday evening as well.
