Recently, I finished up my last bit of business from 2009. SOCKS! Since Christmas and all of its assorted activities were coming up, I wanted a simple, yet engaging, patten to tote around to various gatherings and shopping lines.  In November, I was seeing all these beautiful socks online that were just unassuming combinations of knit and purl. The simplicity was too much to resist and, eventually, I came up with a fun, slanting stitch pattern to decorate my socks. The gusset was my other favorite part of this pattern but I’ll tell you more about that when I release the pattern at the end of the month. In the mean time, you can check out some of the other details over on Ravelry.
