Marooned

I’m delighted to announce that Marooned is out and ready for your needles.

marooned 1These are the socks I worked on while we visited San Francisco this summer (yes, yes I did bring a sock blocker with me in my suitcase) and took pictures of at the beach.  I confess, I’m unreasonably pleased with them!

Well, I’m delighted with the socks themselves (how could I not be), but the unreasonable glee is all coming from the pattern.  While I like my socks thick and smooshy (these are made with String Theory’s Merino DK and so are super thick), I know not everyone does, so I wrote the pattern at three different gauges (7, 8, and 9 stitches per inch).  I also wrote it for 6 different sizes.  That means you should have no trouble finding a size that fits you (or your teenaged daughter or your husband or anyone in between).  Just as delightful, while I was testing the sock, the testers and I found out it works absolutely beautifully with just about any colorway you can imagine.  We had lovely muted semi solid yarns, wild variegated yarns, and everything in between, and they all looked smashing.  I think this is going to be hugely flexible, and I can’t wait to see what you do with it!

And, just as a little encouragement to get it on your needles soon, now through Thursday, the pattern is available at an introductory price of $5.00 (on Friday it will go up to the usual $6.00).  You can download the pattern over on ravelry.  I hope you love it as much as I do!
