New Pattern: Indie Burgh Craft Crawl 2017 Socks

Indie Burgh Craft Crawl 2017 Socks

The annual Indie Burgh Craft Crawl is upon us! This year the Edinburgh, Scotland-based crawl has expanded to include not only 3 indie yarn shops, but also 5 other crafty destinations plus a pop-up market. For the 4th year in a row, I was asked to design a pair of socks to celebrate the occasion.

The Design - These toe-up or cuff-down socks have a floral-y berry motif to represent the beautiful plants found in the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.

Is this your first (or even second) time to purchase an Indie Burgh sock pattern? Consider buying the whole collection of four patterns for just over the price of two patterns ($12 instead of $11)!

Grab your yarn and your needles and let’s go craft crawling! Happy Knitting!

New Pattern: The Doctor Donna Socks (Doctor Who Inspired)

The Doctor Donna Socks (Doctor Who Inspired)

On the heels of my other Doctor Who-inspired sock patterns, I am super excited to have collaborated with Mel of The Yarn Tree on this Doctor Who sock pattern. This pattern is inspired by the time when the Doctor’s companion Donna becomes The Doctor Donna.

The Design - On these toe-up or cuff-down socks, the foot represents the regeneration energy of Donna’s transformation. The leg has a series of repeating V’s to represent how Donna begins to repeat everything (“you know you could fix that chameleon circuit if you just tried hot-binding the fragment links and superseding the binary, binary, binary, binary, binary, binary, binary, binary, binary, binary, binary, binary, binary, binary, I’m fine!”) because her body cannot handle being part Time Lord and part human.

Grab your yarn and your needles. ”I’m fine!” Happy Knitting!
