Carrie Sullivan, aka Irish Girlie Knits, is a blogger, sock-obsessed knitter, and designer known for her deceptively simple, perfectly gorgeous designs such as Cotty and Summer Wind. In addition to her self-published pattern line, Carrie has designed for sock clubs and yarn companies such as Blue Moon Fiber Arts Rockin' Sock Club, the Woolgirl Sock Club, The Plucky Knitter Classics, and Kollage Yarns. Carrie also made her teaching debut at Sock Summit 2011. Her knitting adventures, as well as her two cute doggies and ever-growing sock yarn stash are blogged about at We Do Not Have A Knitting Problem.
By day, Carrie runs a clinic for children with autism in the San Francisco Bay Area. She received her Masters in Special Education from San Francisco State University and her Bachelors Degree in Psychology from the University of Notre Dame. Go Irish!
"Two things I am often looking for with sock patterns are if they work well with both semi-solid and variegated yarns and if they are easy to adjust to sport weight yarns. I love my variegated yarns and I love my sport weight yarns. This simple lace pattern has both qualities!
I named these socks after my great-aunt Cotty. When I first learned to knit she requested just one thing...a pink lace cashmere scarf. She loved all things lace and cashmere! She passed away two years ago, before I had truly fallen for both sock knitting and cashmere. I think she would have loved these, and would have requested a pair in pink for her birthday in May."
