But on to the current knitting. One monkey-inspired legwarmer down, one to go.
After truncated Pom's and Herrings, these are the third set of Cookie's socks I've legwarmer-ed. In many ways this is plain silly, Cookie always produces such good sock patterns. Designs that work well running from ankle to foot; neatly matched heels and toes. Some socks are just conveniently sized stitch patterns, but nothing so prosaic for Cookie. If anyone is in any doubt about her sock-genius, check out her new store.
In other news, I won the januray Storyteller's design competition! The question was 'what would Alice knit?' so naturally I had to enter. I concluded that the storyworld's Alice would, of course, knit socks. None of this messing about with legwarmers for her. She'd knit stripy socks. Stripy, illusion-knit socks. With cats on. Part of the prize is yarn to make the design up with, and I'll be writing up the pattern up for Robynn, blogging as I go, so all will be revealed soon.
