Hello lovely readers. This is a big week here at Yarn Over New York. Not only am I elbow-deep in the dye pots getting ready to launch my etsy store in September (more on that later). But I am still working really hard to create fun and interesting knitwear designs.
Also this week, I released a self-published sock pattern, Swim So Wild Socks. This one is toe-up and specifically designed for self-striping yarns. It’s easy to follow and totally addictive.
I first designed these socks as a birthday present for my man. He loves beluga whales and the Rafi song “Baby Beluga.” I wanted to use the bright blue stripes of Scrumptiouspurl‘s yarn to create sea of rolling waves.
I loved knitting them so much that I absolutely had to make myself a matching pair.
Well, a rainbow matching pair.
