Having a pattern in knitty is a funny thing. You spend a long time knowing it’s coming (but not being allowed to talk about it), you know it will be great fun, but you never know quiiiiite when it will happen. That’s the state I was in for the last several weeks, but after yesterday, the waiting is officially over. May I present Deflect.
These were actually my dad’s birthday socks last year. I finished them while The Boy and I were in Maine in October, and then shamelessly pressed The Boy into modeling them for a little photo shoot (when you have your very own handy beach, it would seem unwise not to use it). Then I had to wait and wait and wait…first for the appropriate birthday, then for the socks to go live on knitty.
But now the waiting is over, and I think we should celebrate. How about we do a little sale? What about 50% off any individual pattern (that’s anything except the full books)? So here’s how you do it:
- Go to my ravelry store, and put anything you want in your cart.
- When you’re ready to check out, look for the button that says use a coupon code and click it.
- Type in the word DEFLECT in the little box that popped up, and hit the button that says apply. You’ll see the change in your total right away.
- Check out like normal, and get knitting!
The coupon is good until the end of the day, eastern time, Tuesday September 17. You can use it as many times as you like, and it works on anything except the full books!
And now, just because it feels good to finally share them after so much waiting, one more gratuitous sock shot!
