Truckle

Oh hey, remember these? I totally do!

truckle main smallOr, more specifically, I remember the terrible terrible plague I had while I knit them.  Their working title when I was knitting them was zombie socks (as I was at least half dead as I made them).  But truckle (which means to yield out of weakness) seemed a much more fitting official title!

They’re up on ravelry now.  And, if you happen to use the code YIELD when you check out, you’ll get a dollar the price between now and Friday.  Just put Truckle in your ravelry cart, click on the ‘use a coupon code’ button, and type in the code YIELD.  You’ll see the change in price reflected right away.

And I promise, the socks won’t actually give you the plague.  They’re just good to have on hand in case it sneaks up on you when you’re not looking!
