🎵If I said you had a beautiful sock/ Would you hold it against me?🎵 Little bit of #DollyParton for your #Friday afternoon there. Here is another of the #testknits I’ve been working on this month, this time for @rosapomar, a designer, shop owner and yarn producer in Portugal. The pattern is called Meias da Tia Barborita, and is named for the classic, lacy cotton socks that real-life Tia Barborita loves to wear. Rosa went to see her aunt recently, and told her all about the design, and the #testknitters all over the world who have been knitting them up. Isn’t that a lovely tribute? Rosa produces her own #sockyarn, but I went for something from the #stash: @thewoolkitchen’s BFL+bamboo #sock blend, in her Hulk colourway. Strong colour, delicate design. Helen has #Hulk in her Etsy shop now; Rosa’s pattern will be out soon, so keep an eye on her feed for more details. Thank you to @sweaterspotter and @louise_sdy, who alerted me to this.
In other sock news, tomorrow is the start of #Socktober, a month of #sockobsession. How we will know the difference in this corner of the internet, I hear you cry? Not sure, is the answer. But I will make a #plan. #knitter #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram #sockknitter #sockstagram #sockknittersofinstagram #indiedesigner #indiedyer #indiekid #socksfordays #rosapomar #meiasdatiabarborita #meiasdaAmelia
