Icicle Socks

I've got a pattern in this months Knit Now magazine - Icicle Socks (Rav Link)

When I designed these socks I was inspired by frosty mornings and spiralling icicles, thinking that based on last year we might be experiencing such weather now. Bah. It's warmer than Spring. But they are still pretty socks, whatever the weather!

They start with a picot cuff with a bead detail and then a lace and cable pattern runs down the leg and foot, very delicate and pretty. I used The Knitting Goddess sock yarn in a beautiful pale teal colour, it's a semi solid and the little tonal variations make me happy.

The magazine took these photos and I think they are fabulous, I love the location, the styling and the photographer is an artist! (The shoes are rather special too)


Knit Now is a fairly new magazine, these socks are in Issue 4, it's full of smaller accessories and home-ware patterns, great articles and lots of ideas and inspiration - it's quickly ascended to the top of my favourite magazine list and I'm looking forward to working with them again in the future.
