I've been busy

In the "Turn this cranky train around" department, I am going to raise the roof on you right now, so get ready.

I've been thinking about my being busy lately and how embracing it will probably be my best chance for survival. So let's get busy together, knitters!

I'd like to show off a new sock I designed in October, knit with Schaefer Yarn Heather in the Sophia Smith color: it's called...

I cannot think of a name! Suggestions welcome.

Okay fine, name to come. Pattern details to come. This is just a quick tease, and a chance for me to say get yourself some of this amazingly luxurious yarn if possible.

Exhibit B: Two Heather yarns pictured here, Julia Child and an unamed yet still loved blue one, begging to be snorgled.

Somehow, it's both strong and squishy soft, and it's my new current fave yarn to knit. Yum!

And for those worried that I am only coming up with new patterns for sale these days, I'd also like to mention that I will have a new FREE pattern available around the first of December...

IN THE WINTER KNITTY! WOO HOO! Must. Calm. Down.

(Deep breath) Thank you. This brings me to my point, let's knit the heck out of this fall and winter.

What are you waiting for? Grab some yarn, check out the Stitcher's Market and get your patterns published. Let's party!

Not into that? Get on Ravelry and search some patterns to try. Again, let's party! Snorgle your stash!

Beautiful socks! I really should knit more but all I seem to do is spin. Fortunately, I'm selling what I spin which is quite nice.

Wowsers! That's awesome, congratulations!!!

I love the socks, they're neither too short or too tall, and I love the stitch combos. I'd say call them Sweetheart, but that's just because they seem so sweet & perfect (like a pretty 1950's sock hop gal!) Great job, they're really lovely!

I love these socks! With a yarn named after Sophia Smith the socks ought to have some kind of Smith College or W. MA name -- like Paradise (for Paradise Pond on the Smith campus -- www.smith.edu) ...
