I am Off
I will be in North Devon for a week, celebrating someone's birthday but also knitting a series of socks specifically inspired by special places along this rugged coastline. There will be a collection of 4 patterns, all with a variety of stitch patterns not only on the body, but on the cuff band and heels.
What I have in mind is sock patterns for those people wishing to move on from stocking stitch, that do have the know how to insert stitch patterns onto their learned structure, but frankly just cannot be bothered to do the maths. They will be people who want to knit lots of socks to wear rather than knit a showy piece. However, each one will have a vintage inspired stitch pattern involving simple cables, texture and lace with variations on standard ribbing and heels to keep the interest. They will be quick knit as well and not too bogged down by their stitch types.
