Scrunch socks in Merino

I received an order from a woman in CA for a pair of the Scrunch Socks in wool. She picked the color of Mink Heather (Knit Picks) and they came out perfectly.
Beautiful softness and the elasticity of the wool made the sock a bit more comfy around the foot. I will do them again in wool but may use a fingerling wool instead of the sports weight. Might be interesting to see. But these came out really nicely.

Sock Pattern Testing

There are times that I can't believe the wonderful people that I have met on line while selling on Etsy or  while sharing on Ravelry my socks and mitts. This is a photo sent to me by Patrick and Alex who are testing my Link Cable and Rib Sock Pattern. The care that they have taken to contact me on the progress has been really wonderful and the results of the test knit has been rewarding. I loved the photo and had to share it. Well knitted and I am sure that the reward of wearing them will be warm and fuzzy. Thank you again to Patrick and Alex.....amazing.

Scrunch Socks Lengthened

I love it when I get photos from knitters that knit my patterns! This is the Scrunch Sock with a different toe and an addition of a half diamond pattern to lengthen the sock for her foot. It is beautifully knitted and love the lengthening idea. Great sock knitter...Barb you are the best.

Etsy On Sale

So I have created a sale on all my mitts. 15% off and goes for 1 week. Will be interesting to see how this works and if I get any traffic into my shop.

So hopefully my stats will have more traffic and a couple of sales. Interesting experiment.

So trying something new...Etsy On Sale. A new program for automatic sales. This is a test and I took 15% off my Fingerless Mitts for one week starting tomorrow. I think it might be a good way to get customers to my shop.

Finally Posted in Ravelry Cable Link Rib Sock

And just posted the sock pattern that I have been working on and hope that it is received well. Very simple pattern and I would rate it easy but not beginner sock. Yarn was the Knit Pick Gloss (Merino and Silk) but had done this sock using Lorna Laces Shepard Sock Yarn. Any Fingering weight should be fine for this pattern. I have not posted on Etsy as yet but will after a week or so. want to see the reaction to the pattern or if it gets any reaction. But it is done and I do like the results.
Sample pattern posting.
