Review: Catch the Rainbow Socks- Toe Up

C.C. Almon, a knitting friend/podcaster released a new sock pattern last week and I love it so much I just have to tell everyone about it. The "Catch the Rainbow" sock pattern got it's name from the way the stitch pattern combined with the rainbow colored self striping yarn really looks like a beautiful rainbow after the rain falls.

This sock pattern is written for either 64 or 72 stitches and features 6 pages of wonderfully written detailed instructions and lots of great photos. It has everything I look for in a pattern and I am PICKY.

If you are a knitter looking for a new sock pattern to add to your queue you need to head over to Ravelry right now and purchase the "Catch the Rainbow" socks. Better yet, if you purchase the pattern between now and midnight on October 16th 2013 you can send JavaPurl (C.C. Almon) the Ravelry name of a friend and she'll gift it to them for free. How awesome is that. So generous.

C.C. has more awesome patterns in her Ravelry shop as well that I highly recommend checking out. My other favorite sock design of C.C.'s is the "Rescue me, Chin boy, and Show Me the Star" Doctor Who inspired socks. 

C.C. and her daughter Damaris also have a video podcast called "Geeky Girls Knit". It's a great podcast that just reached it's 1 year anniversary not long ago. If you haven't seen it yet please go check it out: Geeky Girls Knit Podcast.

Well, I'm off to start working on my "Catch the Rainbow" socks. I'm so excited to see the finished product and even better, wear them!!

Happy Sock Knitting!!!

**Just released** "Cables, How I Love Thee" Sock Pattern

I released my first sock design on Ravelry yesterday and I am so excited to share it with you all.
My design pairs simple cables with eyelets and decreases. It may look a little complicated but I promise you it's easy and it works up so quickly. You could easily make a pair of socks for you or a friend in a week or less of knitting every evening.

The design is written for top down and magic loop or 2 circular needles. I use a heel flap and gusset construction for the heel but you are welcome to use any heel you are comfortable with. A way to make this design REALLY POP would be to use self striping sock yarn.

This pattern is available on Ravelry for $3.00 till next Tuesday. After Tuesday the price will be $4.00.

**NEW DESIGNS** Dishcloth Patterns

Yesterday I released 2 new patterns: Pretty Petals and Petals Galore.  Pretty petals is a fast and easy dishcloth. Takes me about 30 minutes. Petals Galore takes a little more time but is very beautiful and a little on the dense side. A work of art.

Right now you can get $1.00 off any one of my dishcloth patterns. You just need to enter the following code at the checkout: dishcloths

You can also buy both patterns separately here:
