I have some ideas for some new sock patterns and RIGHT THIS MINUTE there is sock yarn on it's way to me to knit up for these new patterns (ooooh, the drama), but I have to finish up the pairs I've started before I can cast on for new socks. So last night, I sat down and made it past the heel turn and I'm working on the gusset decreases on my Scarborough Fair/Four sock - doesn't it look kind of squinky and sad in it's unblocked state? The foot really moves pretty quickly on this pattern so hopefully I can get a lot done and get it off the needles. Then I need to knit the second Caledonian Mist sock, but that is the more portable of the two patterns, so I should be able to finish it pretty quickly if I drag it around with me.
The new designs will be similar to the Scarborough Fair/Caledonian Mist pattern with one simpler design paired with a more complex design in each pattern collection. The feedback I got from that idea was all positive and you guys seemed to think it was a good idea, so I'll continue pairing up designs like that.
Happy Valentine's Day!
