I mentioned last week in my post about my Vanilla Latte Socks that I was working on another pair of Vanilla socks… and here they are! These are the Plain Vanilla Socks in Patons Kroy Sock. I really like how these turned out- the length of the leg is perfect and they fit well. The only tweak I made was to use 1×1 ribbing for the top cuff rather than 2×2- I find it doesn’t stretch out quite as much that way.
These socks are my second pair this year, so I’m on track with my goal of finishing 12 pairs this year! I’m going to start another pair this weekend, so I can get a head start on next month’s socks!
(And that book I’m reading in the background? The Time Traveler’s Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger. Great so far!)
I also have a quick announcement today… a bunch of designers, myself included, are doing a little donation drive during the Olympics and Ravellenic games to voice our support for those whose human rights are being oppressed in Russia. From tomorrow (Feb 7) to Feb 9, I’ll be donating 50% of my total pattern sales to Egale and for the remainder of the games (Feb 10-23) I’ll be donating 25% of my total pattern sales. Any of my patterns are eligible. If you’d like to see the other designers participating, Bristol Ivy has compiled a list on her blog. Thanks for your support!
(And I’ll see you again tomorrow for the 2014 Ravellenic Games cast-on… go Team Canada!)
