✨ PATTERN RELEASE ✨ The day has finally come. My Liesl Sock pattern is LIIIVEEE! And I’m super nervous. Also proud and excited. But mostly nervous 😬 .

.
Yarn: @baystreetyarns John Henry “Like My Metal” & @peggyjanefibers Everyday Sock “Stop Acting Like Me! You’re So Obnoxious!”

T minus thirty some-odd hours 🕺🏻 MY LIESL SOCK PATTERN COMES OUT FRIDAY AND I’M SO EXCITED I HAVE TO INTERNET SCREAM IT!!! To date this is my proudest moment; I started it on a whim in the middle of the night not really thinking it’d actually, well, work. But it did! And I didn’t punch a hole in the wall! I actually wrote a friggin sock pattern 😆 And a huge humongous gigantor thank you to my amazing testers who helped me out with this, you all rock my socks (how could I not? It was right there) 🖤🖤🖤🖤

Mystery #crochetpuddle! I’m so excited to be testing this top secret pattern for @tlyarncrafts, I feel like a friggin spy🕵🏻‍♀️ I’m also pumped to be working with this beautiful merino I found at my LYS; it is fully worth having my face burn to work with it 👹😍 #suckitallergies

Someone please send the second sock syndrome antidote 💉 I started 2 new WIPs this week (why!?), but it’s time to buckle down and knock this puppy out! Pattern will be coming atcha soon 🧦

The day has finally come, friends: I GOT A YARN SWIFT! No more hand winding for this gal, I’m movin’ up in the world! I was so excited to get a picture with my new beloved, I didn’t even do my hair or wear a matching outfit or flip the camera around so the picture isn’t a grainy smudge, this needed to be documented IMMEDIATELY! I’m so pumped!! #cakealldayeveryday #livinglarge

It’s happening, my #Zweig is coming to fruition. So excited to get started and work on it for the next 5 years...kidding. Kind of. Hopefully 🙂 But how pretty are these yarns!? I was a little nervous about the pairing when I first ordered them, but they’re perfect together!

No nifty yarn winder = #humanswift 🙆🏻‍♀️ I’m caking up these gooorgeous new yarns I just received so I can get to work on another pair of SOCKS!! 👏🏻 They’re gonna be snazzy snazzy.

Updated: 3 1/2 week timeline! ✨TESTERS NEEDED✨
I’m looking for multiple knitters to test my newest pattern: The Liesl Ankle Sock! This pattern is written for 3 sizes (S, M, L *note this is for foot WIDTH [i.e narrow, med, wide] length is customizable) and has directions for using Magic Loop and DPNs.
.
DETAILS:
-worked cuff down has short row heels
-165-185 yds of fingering weight yarn
-US 1 (2.25 mm) needle(s) or size needed to obtain gauge
-fits just about everybody!
.
REQUIREMENTS:
-be able to complete socks and send detailed notes by Aug 15 (3 1/2 week timeline)
-keep track of yardage
-have a public account so I can check out your work!
-not a requirement, but it’d be suuuuper cool if you created a Ravelry project when the pattern is released
.
If you’re interested, leave a comment with what size you would like to test. Testers will be chosen 08.21 PLEASE only apply if you’re confident enough in your skills that you’ll be able to complete these in the given timeframe! Feel free to ask any questions as well 🙂 And please no DMs, that gets way too confusing.

Taken from a crowded waiting room. #knittingtoavoidhumancontact

1 down, 1 to go. I realized once I finished my first sock (just a smidgen late) that I funked something in the ankle/heel area, but I figured out what I did wrong 👏🏻 SO! After this wonky pair is finished up, which I will most definitely still be wearing, I’ll have to whip up another pair to work out the revisions. WOO More socks! Buckle up #SOCKSPAM

Rules of Car Knitting (or Crocheting):
1. pack up project and aaaalllll the notions because you’ll definitely magically finish this sock in an hour long drive
2. forget you brought a project until you’re halfway there
3. when you do remember, turn the radio off and make everyone drive in awkward silence because I’M COUNTING!
4. immediately feel carsick
5. lug around the 5 pounds of yarn you packed the rest of the day
.
Happens every time. This is literally all I got done 😐 Happy knitting! #carknittingisthebest
