|Yes, its official! I'm in Knitty Deep Fall 2012!|
I've been sitting on this secret for months now. I couldn't tell anyone about it when I was designing the sock. I couldn't tell anyone about it after it had been accepted. I had to wait until this moment, today, to finally tell everyone that I had finally made my major online knitting debut...as one of the many to be published in Knitty as part of their 10th Anniversary Issue for Deep Fall 2012.
I'm still new to the whole pattern design world, and so I hope this little offering will help launch my stay-at-home mom career of knitwear designer extraordinaire. Or at least help me support my hobby.
This little beauty, You Can Call Me Al is named for the demon Algalirept from Kim Harrison's Hallows Series. I am a HUGE fan of Ms. Harrison's work and wanted to create a sock to represent one of my favorite characters from her series. Designed to be worked in either fingering or sport weight yarn, I created this bad boy in 4 sizes. I created a unique stitch designed to resemble flames. The shaping of the foot and heel is also pretty unique to this sock and took alot of work and effort. It has a ribbed gusset as well for added comfort and a snug fit. I hope you all try it out and enjoy knitting it up in a range of yarns and colors. I can't wait to see all the projects.
That's it for this post. Come check out all my other designs over at RAVELRY. Hopefully I'll have more to post soon about this and other projects. :) I'm so glad I can finally share this with you all
