Mont St. Michel Socks

Today, the Deep Fall issue of Knitty launched with a very special inclusion: my own Mont St. Michel sock design!

Squeeeee!!!  I’m so excited.  I’ve been keeping this one so hidden and now I can’t wait for everyone to go look!

This design was inspired by the Harbor mini-skein set from Never Enough Thyme Yarns and my visit to Mont St. Michel back in 1999. When I approached Katie from Never Enough Thyme Yarns about creating a pattern, I had a pair of mismatched socks in mind.  However, as I contemplated the yarn, the sight of the night sky meeting the ocean and the ripples of drying sand on the parking area near Mont St. Michel kept reappearing in my mind’s eye. I couldn’t avoid it and finally gave in.

Happily enough (even though my favorite will continue to be the Harbor), I think that playing with other colorways from these lovely ladies will bring whimsy and joy to your knitting as you create this pair of soft and snuggly socks.

If you knit these up, please let me know and post your project for everyone to see on Ravelry!

Ooooooh!!!! I can’t wait to see them!
