It’s March! It’s spring! Well, I have to ignore all the snow outside of my windows to really believe this, but I’m good at ignoring snow, as long as I’m inside :) And my new socks help as well – the gorgeous colors from String Theory Colorworks gorgeous yarn remind me of the warmer days soon to come!
If you need some help dreaming about spring, too, you can receive the pattern for 25 % off on Ravelry with the coupon code “spring” (without the quotes) from now until March 6th, end of day (Switzerland time).
There’s no need to panic and grab nail polish or hairspray for the runs in these socks – they make up a beautiful design element! The stitch pattern is super easy to knit – if you can knit and purl, you can do it! Detailed instructions for the heel and toe are included. The stitch pattern is written out as well as charted.
Many thanks to my tech editor cupani and my testknitters Dreamchaser0202, Elizabeth11, Ichbinsalso, Kathinka14 and KnitterScarlet.
