Sproing!

I'm so excited! The new summer knitty is up, and my Spring forward sock pattern is in it! I had fun making them, and I hope you will too! They are a quick, easy knit.
Thanks to my lovely test knitters, Cornelia, Sue, and Joanne!
Have you ever actually tried to jump on a pogo stick?!?! I almost killed myself!

Hi, Linda,

Great socks. Though not a major sock knitter, I might give these a whirl.

OMG! I am so excited for you! Let me be one of the first ones to say "THESE ARE THE NEW MONKEYS"

As Cockeyed said--We are not worthy:) Hey can I get your autograph and take a picture with my soon to be Spring Forwards next year at sock camp:)

Congrats!

I love them. I immediately knew which stash yarn I was going to use for them and will cast on as soon as Summer of Socks starts. :)

Jennifer said...

Great socks! What a fun pattern. And I'm extraordinarily impressed that you were on the pogo stick and not your stunt double. Thanks for a great pattern.

I really like the socks too! They look so complicated, but the pattern seems mellow enough to be "to go" knitting. Very clever!

By the way...I know how you feel. I designed Thira, and have been bouncing off the walls for 24 hours! Except, I don't have a pogo stick to help me. :)

Gorgeous sock pattern. This one I will make for myself.

Thank you.

Sue said...

Such a terrific,fun knit.
Kudos to your photographer.
Now to get an autographed copy of the pattern!

Linda said...

The socks are gorgeous!

Birgit said...

just found the sock pattern over on knitty and from this issue, thats the pattern which fascinated me most.

especially as it´s so simple to knit and yields such a great effect!

Beatriz said...

This is my favorite pattern from this issue. Thanks so much for sharing your pattern with us! I love the pogo stick pictures...very good play on the pattern name.

Ang said...

This is the prettiest sock pattern I have ever seen! I immediately printed the pattern from Knitty and cast on with Blue Moon's STR Lemongrass. Absolutely gorgeous. Thank you so much for sharing this pattern with all of us!

Love this pattern-- thanks for sharing! Not too boring and not too complicated to fix when I screw up after getting distracted! (Which happens a lot)I am done with the first cuff so far and think I will actually escape second sock syndrome with this one!

I love this pattern and sooo want to try it! I am a newbie to socks and have only done basic socks on 12" circular. I cannot deal with dp's until the very end. Is there a way you can tell me how to do it on 12" circulars? Pretty please with a cherry on top! :)
