Belegost

Per the archives, I finished these socks in early May. I finally got around to publishing the pattern for them this week. Allow me to formally introduce Belegost.

Belegost Alt 7

I named this after a Dwarf city from The Silmarillion. I have always been, and will always be a Tolkien fan. I can imagine a Dwarf wearing these while working in mines or fighting dragons. The pattern consists of a textured panel surrounded by an interesting cabled grid. Admittedly, this is a pattern that requires attention, but hopefully, folks find it worth it.

The sample was knit in Hazel Knits Piquant Lite. It’s a really great yarn for socks, and their colors are amazing. These were knit up in the Shannypants colorway.

There are three sizes in the pattern, and these are worked cuff down with a heel flap and gusset. The pattern is available for $5.00.

Suri Socks

I feel like I’ve been a bit negligent about blogging lately. That has a great deal to do with a home improvement project that has taken up much of my free time lately. Knitting and blogging (and sometimes, my sanity) have suffered a bit because of this. There have been a few days when I considered hiding under the bed with my cats.

I’m happy to say that I’ve somehow managed to finish my Suri Socks. These are fun combination of some lace and a simple cable. They came together really well, and I’m very happy with them. It’s such a symmetrical design, that I didn’t try mirroring the sock. There’s already a lot going on here, so that didn’t really seem necessary.

The design seems to suit the yarn nicely. It’s always a good thing when that happens. I can also officially say that I am no longer intimidated by lace.

Since I know that someone is going to ask when the pattern will be available for these, the best answer I can give to that question is sometime in the future. Sorry to be so vague, but pattern writing and a kitchen remodel don’t play nicely together. I’ll get to it, I promise.

Show and Tell

First up, progress on the Suri sock.

That’s one sock down, and one leg at about the halfway point. This picture doesn’t do the sock justice. I’m really pleased with the way these turned out.

Next, On the Edge of a Maelstrom is now available to the general public.

Finally, the mystery sock period is over, so I can actually show off Mally.

Mally Hero

It was fun watching the knitters work on these over the last couple of months.

The patterns for On the Edge of a Maelstrom and Mally can be found in my ravelry shop. I’ll add links to the pattern page here when (or should I say if) things calm down.

Suri Sock Progress

Despite the heat we’re experiencing this weekend, and the fact that my house is filled with dry wall dust, I am knitting. I’ve completed the leg of the first sock using the Suri Sock from Little Gidding Farm.

I started the pattern at the back of the sock and have it traveling around the leg. I’ve taken a couple of side shots to give you an idea of what is happening.

I’m still playing around with some lace, and there is a simple cable thrown in once the pattern stops traveling. I’m happy with the way things are looking.

These are going to be warm socks, which is a little ironic considering how hot it is today.

A Successful Experiment

Look, I have to lace socks. Yes, many people have paved the way for this before, but this was a first for me. I may have gotten a little carried away with the length of the legs. Someone had commented that lace grows. Now, I know and have proof.

I’m still struggling to find decent lighting. I seem cursed lately. When the sun is shining, I’m busy doing other things or my camera battery has no juice. The above¬†close up sort of shows some of the detail in the center.

I’m happy with the outcome of this experiment, which means there may be more lace in the future.

Someone had commented last week¬†stating that she couldn’t tell if I was ready to post a pattern for these. In short, I’m not. At least, not yet anyway. Pattern writing takes time, and these socks desperately need a bath before “official” photos can be taken. To be honest, life has been hectic and busy, so pattern writing has had to take a back seat. Rest assured, when I publish these, I’ll announce it here.

Now I need to contemplate what I will be do for my next project. I’ve been provided yarn support by some wonderful indie dyers, so I do need to pay attention to their yarns. I’m off to play with graph paper, and figure something out.
