I haven’t ‘officially’ posted these socks yet on my blog because I was waiting to see if KnitPicks.com would consider adding the pattern to their Independent Designer Program . . . and they did! You can find the pattern on their site. (GASP!!!!)
These are fun socks that I designed with Valentine’s Day in mind and knitted up one pair with pink and red yarn. The first pair sold on the shoppe so I decided to make another using black yarn and the same pink. I love how the pink pops against the black. This is the colorway I used as my final sample to KP.
This was my first pair – the pink/red version – and here’s what the back and foot bottom look like.
I submitted my proposal to KnitPicks early February and within a week I got a response! I can’t tell you how excited I was to read the email saying they were interested in my design. I was shaking with excitement when I texted the news to my hubby. Needless to say I was on cloud nine the entire week. I submitted my sample and final pattern a couple weeks later and got the official ‘green’ light in early March. I did submit a photo of myself (cringe) and a little bio (smile) so I can no longer hide behind the smiley-face Hawaiian girl caricature done by my former colleague (thank you Katie).
Special thanks to my awesome hubby, Jake, and to the KnitPicks Community for their constant support and encouragement.
