The Ribbed Leaf Socks feature a mini cable pattern, a hybrid heel that combines a short-row heel and a short heel flap with a gusset and paired decreases toes closed with kitchener stitch.

Until March 5th, end of day, there’s still a 40 % sale for all my single patterns on Ravelry with the coupon code “Celebration”, and the 40th Release KAL started today!

I’d love to see you join the fun here.

I’m joining the KAL with my Daddy’s Prayer Shawl pattern worked in a handspun yarn. It’s two years since he left me and it’s nice to have some quiet time thinking of him and working on his pattern. The handspun yarn adds another special twist to it in my mind. datei-01-03-17-16-51-34

I chose the stitch markers with him in mind – the sheep because I’m sure he would love them. The sock because he loved my handknit socks and didn’t wear any other socks. The alpaca because he loved to tell a story about some alpacas that fled from a circus in my home town and roamed the streets. He always asked me “What were these animals called?” It must be about 30 years now since that happened. Man, I’m getting old!
