I love all crafts and art. My grandmother taught me to knit and crochet, my grandfather taught me to oil paint and watercolor, my great-grandmother taught me to sew and design clothes, and my mother taught me how to quilt and embroider. Funny thing is, they all taught me these things starting when I was about five years old. I continued to develop my skills all the way through high school winning contests and awards along the way. In college I was able to support myself by selling clothes I had designed and sewn and crocheted baby items.
I spent about 15 years sewing professionally for a variety of businesses and then switched gears to my knitting skills and began designing and knitting socks. I still spend about 6 to 10 hours a day designing and knitting, own a yarn store, have taught myself to spin yarn, and weave, and teach classes on all of it.
I feel SO fortunate to have been raised by such an incredibly talented family. It has brought me countless hours of pleasure and has allowed me to bless the lives of others who love and appreciate such items but never had the opportunity to learn.
Just in time for the Halloween holiday! Yummy orange and yellow paired with black for a fun sock that is fast and easy to make. Garter stitch short cuff, short row heel, and a simple slip stitch pattern where you only have to work with one color at a time.
This pattern is perfect for the knitter that is familiar with sock construction and is ready to branch out into using different color combinations.
This pattern would also work perfect with the hand dyed, multi-colored or self striping sock yarn. Sizing is for an average size foot. This pattern can easily be adjusted for larger or smaller feet though.
