Silk Road Socks Individual Patterns

If you’ve been following along for the last few weeks, you know I am neck deep in a massive shop reorganization.  At the beginning of the year, I took my whole ravelry store down (talk about scary).  And I’ve been busy bringing patterns back out as I get them revised and reformatted.

The whole process is unspeakably satisfying.  I am one of those people who thrives on order and tidiness, and this is basically giving that part of my brain free rein to be as picky as it wants.  But, you’re not here for disturbing insights into how my mind works.  You’re here for the knitting.  So let’s talk about that.

One of of the things I’m doing as part of the reorganization is releasing individual patterns from some of the books.  Now I confess I’m a sucker for books, so I’m always going to feel like getting the whole thing is the better move.  But if you only want one or two of the patterns, sometimes it makes more sense to just get them individually.  And now you can!

So, for the next few days, you can use the code ONE BY ONE to take 10% off the individual patterns in Silk Road Socks, or the whole book if that’s more your speed (I did the math for you, if you want three or more of the patterns, you’ll save money if you just buy the whole book).

Just put the pattern or patterns you want in your ravelry cart, use the coupon code ONE BY ONE, and you’ll see the discount applied before you check out (if you’ve never used a ravelry coupon code before, ravelry has a good explainer for them here).  The code works through the end of the day, eastern time, Friday January 24.

Oh, and if you want to see what other patterns have come back so far, you can always see the current shop here.  And if there’s a pattern you’re especially hoping to see come back, totally send me a message and let me know.  I’m generally trying to bring the most popular ones back first, then the ones that are easiest to update.  But there is totally some flexibility there, and if I hear a bunch of folks are especially eager for a particular one, that can help it come back out sooner.

Rummage

Look, sometimes you need a very particular yarn.  Or rather, a very particular pair of yarns (thus upping the difficulty level considerably).

So the only thing to do is dump out the stash.  All of it.  In one huge pile.  Then dive in.

I’m looking for some sort of floofy yarn and a smooth yarn to go with it.

And I’ve got a few contenders.

But of course the real test will come when I swatch them.

Which is what happens next…

 

 

Temptation

The temptation to put a stamp and an address on one of these and see what happens if I actually try and mail is very nearly overwhelming.

I’m sure it would actually end in heartbreak.  There’s no way at all that’s a good idea.  None.  Zero.

But my goodness it’s tempting.

Yes, the pattern will be out soon (probably early February…so you can make a pile for your valentine needs).  Because I’m not going to keep you waiting long.  I’m not a monster!

 

Looking for this pattern?

Tell me when it's out!

If you're reading this shortly after it was posted, the pattern's probably not out quite yet. But if you'd like an email when it is, click the link above and sign up!

My beating heart…

You folks are relentless! Which is, I admit, rather flattering. But still…there were howls of dismay in my inbox this morning. Apparently some folks were awfully sad they couldn’t start on these over the weekend. But don’t worry, it’s all better now! The pattern for Palpitation is back up.

It was down for a little bit for the new year (just a reminder for anyone who missed it, I took everything down at the beginning of the year and I’m bringing things back out as I have time to update them). But I think you’ll love the new version!

I’ve knit rather a lot more hearts since the pattern came out (they’re hard to resist), so I wanted to snap a few new pictures (Ontheround was kind enough to let me rampage around her glorious studio taking them).

I also wanted to include a couple of cute duplicate stitch charts in case anyone else feels like what their knit hearts needed were some tiny embroidered hearts on top. You know, on the off chance they weren’t cute enough already!

So, if you already had the pattern, check your ravelry library for the update. And if you spent the weekend pining for the pattern you couldn’t get, you can grab it now. And if you’ve never seen these before but are now suddenly overwhelmed with an urgent need to knit a whole pile of them, well you can grab it now too.

Oh and the code BE STILL will take 10% off the price for the next couple of days if you’re so inclined. Just to make them extra sweet!⁠⠀
