Sock and sock patterns

Hi there, I’m writing late in the day today. I was too busy at work to take a break and in addition it’s pretty hot out here today so I’m sort of melting inside at my computer and I think my brain took a hit! Working in slow motion and not having many ideas for a blog post today…sniff sniff. But hey, I’m used to write a post per day and I’m guessing (hoping) you enjoy coming by every day to read me:) So here I am. By the way, do you enjoy a post a day? Am I maybe overdoing things? I don’t know. I know that some bloggers only blog once a week and others maybe 2-3 times per week. Sometimes I feel so inspired and full of ideas that I could post 2-3 times a day and so I write down ideas or make drafts for later and I kind of got used to writing everyday and I feel that’s cool. So I hope you enjoy that, and if not I’m sure you just don’t come by if you are doing something else:)

Now, what could I share with you today? Well, yesterday I told you about the generous offer from Slipped Stitch Studios and she makes the needle nooks which are so cool when knitting socks on dpns so I thought I’d talk about socks. Not long ago I was browsing Ravelry and I came across this German designer who has lots of beautiful and free sock patterns. I had never heard of her so maybe you haven’t either.

Her name is Gudrun Neumann Mack and her username on Ravelry is Calpurnia1408.  You can check out her designs by clicking here

She does not only do socks, she also has a couple of shawls in there. Her socks are mostly textured or lace patterns and I saved all of them to my Ravelry library thinking I have knit some of them up.

Here are my favorites

Dragontail  – I love how the patterning stands out here

Elfriede free sock pattern on Ravelry

Elfriede – I like how the pattern is constructed in an unusual way, sort of like sideways

highlander free pattern on Ravelry

Highlander – this is a simple and yet intricate pattern

Sister of Leoni – I really like the cables here and the details on the side of the leg. I think I may cast on for these real soon

That’s all for today my friends. I’ll be more creative tomorrow I’m sure. Just thinking about the weekend makes me smile and think of all the things I could be doing:)

  1. I would like to have a go at patterned socks one of these days. I’ve knitted three pairs of socks up to now – the last two pairs using the two at a time, toe up, magic loop method and I like it so much I don’t think I’d do it any other now. I use self patterning wool too so the pattern just does itself. I’m not sure I want to add cabling to the mix but I am tempted by the results. I like to knit socks in the summer because they are a small project and, unlike the huge blankets I usually make, don’t make me overheat in the evenings.
    As for blogging every day – you should do whatever you feel. I usually comment on the blogs I follow but not always on a blog that posts daily although that doesn’t necessarily mean I haven’t read it.

    • Thank you Tialys for your input on the blogging frequency:) And as for the socks I agree that those are ideal summer knits as they don’t overheat our lap when knitting in the sun or in the evening like you say. Once you get more familiar with sock knitting I’m sure you’ll give cables and such a try, it is always fun to try out new things and when that involves socks it’s even better because they are small projects so we usually do not get overwhelmed.
