Patterns and Yarn and Pictures Oh My

Alrighty, after much delay (we’re pretending it’s so I could take the socks far away for a photo shoot, not because I was lazy) the pattern for Peregrinate is out.

I had great fun with these.  They came with me on my trip to DC for Savor and on my trips to Rochester and Pontiac to see Jukebox the Ghost and on a few other smaller trips too.  The vast majority of them were knit on the road, which seems fitting given the name.  I finished them shortly before my excursion to Port Ludlow, so I thought it was only reasonable to take them with me to get some pretty pictures.

The yarn is by Barking Dog YarnsSuzan just launched her new website.  To celebrate, she’s kindly agreed to donate a skein of her sock yarn to one lucky winner.  To enter, head over to her site, look through the sock yarn, and come back and post a comment with the name of your favorite color.  If you win, she’ll send that yarn off to you (and I’ll send you the pattern or refund your purchase if you already bought it).  Just be sure you use a real email address when you leave a comment (I’m the only one who can see it) so I can find you if you win.  I’ll leave comments open through Tuesday or so.

And yes, because someone will ask, the second picture does show the left sock on the right foot and the right sock on the left foot.  I promise it’s ok…your socks won’t suddenly unravel and no one will yell at you if you wear them backwards.  I just wanted to show off the way that lovely acid green ended up in the purl field on both socks.  It happened with no intervention on my part (though I was prepared to force it if I had to) and entertained me to no end.
