Mel is a local gal (to me here in the PNW), that is a member of our Ravelry group — why yes, we have a Ravelry group. It started out small, but it’s growing all the time. She knit these lively St. Patrick’s Day socks for herself. I think they are wonderful. Anyone who knows me, knows I love all things Irish! AND I love this picture – cute!!
The pattern is the Basic Sock by Churchmouse Yarns & Teas. It is a basic pattern with options to switch it up while learning to knit socks. The yarn that Mel used is Abi Grasso SelfStriping Sock Yarn that was designed especially for St. Patrick’s Day. This yarn is available on Etsy, but maybe some of these indy dyers will work more with the yarn shops, so they can sell unique yarns to the masses. Just ask your LYS for some self striping sock yarn, and definitely start with this Churchmouse pattern if you are a first timer. The Churchmouse patterns are now sold in many yarn shops around the world actually.
Nice work Mel, and thanks for sharing with us~
